The Spanish rock ‘n’ roll artist has recently had a room dedicated to his career at Dorado Hotel.
When you open the suite’s door, the single ‘Rock and Roll Star’ welcomes guests into the room as it automatically drops on the turntable. This single, the first one that Loquillo recorded, was chosen by Concept as the honorary record that will join the rest of gold records that baptise the other suites in the hotel, including classics from Bowie, The Stones, The Beatles and The Doors. There is a silkscreened cup and a motif designed exclusively for Loquillo with the opening verses of his song (you’ve been lucky to get to know me / I think nobody likes to be born to lose) decorating one of the walls. In the bathroom mirror, the image of the bird which accompanies the alter ego of the artist features, since Epi, his friend of old basketball adventures, baptised him with his well-known stage name. In another mirror, situated above the bed’s headboard, there is a huge silkscreen image of the artist’s silhouette from a famous Juan Pérez Fajardo photo.
The room’s memorabilia is completed with three very special pieces. A commemorative t-shirt from Loquillo’s epic concert in the Zeleste Club in Barcelona (now the Razzmatazz club) in 1988, an original photo by Juan Fajardo of the singer in the Las Ventas concert last year, which was one of the high points of his career, and a jacket lent by the artist himself, one of four that he wore in that legendary Madrid concert, from his Salud y Rock and Roll tour. Fans of El Loco who stay in this exclusive Dorado room.
