Memo Aguirre

Juan Guillermo Aguirre (born 1951), better known as Memo Aguirre, is a famous Chilean singer whose voice has been heard all over Latin America, particularly during the opening acts of superhero cartoon shows during the 1980s. He is famous for singing the latin american He-Man theme song for the animated series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.

When Memo Aguirre was a teen, he participated in a group named "Los Sacros". The group did not enjoy much success, and Aguirre, perhaps disappointed, moved to the United States in 1971, setting in San Francisco.

Aguirre arrived at the States with dreams of becoming a very famous singer. He suffered for a long period there, sometimes even singing on street corners to live off passers by's donations. He would later on debut on the somewhat better scenario of San Francisco bars, becoming a regular there and earning better money for his work.
