Eric Jiménez is the drummer of Los Planetas and Lagartija Nick, with whom he recorded the legendary album Omega with Enrique Morente. For twenty consecutive years he has received the award for the best alternative Spanish drummer. His story is that of a man who has always been on a tightrope, between winning and losing, between life and death, between music and madness. We present the unusual and exciting story of drummer Eric Jiménez.
