Juanes: Reflecting On The Peaks and Valleys of Stardom

Thursday, April 11, 2013

Juanes on his "Unplugged" tour (Penélope Sierra)

Colombian musician, singer and songwriter Juanes skyrocketed to international fame in the early 2000s as he embarked upon his solo career. But, as he describes in his new memoir, called Juanes: Chasing the Sun, his road to stardom hasn’t been without its unexpected --and sometimes unpleasant -- twists and turns.

Juanes joins us for a look back at the first four decades of his life, sharing details about a recent "detox" from the music biz, his early days as the lead singer of a metal band, and what he believes to have been a UFO sighting in Geneva, Switzerland.

Plus, Juanes shares details about his next project -- an album produced by Grammy-winning producer Steve Lillywhite, that he expects to be released at the end of 2013 or early 2014.
