Rosie Flores, singer

Rosie Flores

September 10, 1950, San Antonio, TX

After a stint with the cult cowpunk band Screaming Sirens, who recorded an album Fiesta, with Enigma and appeared as themselves in the films The Runnin’ Kind , and had cameo roles in The Vendetta and Reform School Girls. Signing with Warner's Reprise subsidiary in 1987 as a solo artist was her first major break. The label hoped to light up the country charts with a female version of Dwight Yoakam, and paired Flores with Yoakam's producer/guitarist Pete Anderson. The self-titled release spotlighted Flores as a stylish, fiery neo-traditional singer who played explosive guitar solos to match. ~ Rosie Flores ~ retrieved August 5, 2013 ©

Q: You’ve been playing forever yet you’re not going cold. ~ A: I think I have the spirit of a teenager and that keeps me young. People can’t believe my age. People are all high-fiving me because for somebody who hasn’t had a face lift, I’m doing pretty good. I feel so young. I like growing older gracefully. As long as I can keep myself eating and drinking the right amount of stuff, I’m keeping my energy like a teenager. And the biggest thing I loved then was playing guitar and writing songs. That’s where it all started. I really feel like the same. In my head and my heart, I don’t feel any different than I did when I was 16, 17 and 18 years old. I’ve thought about it—that must be the reason. It’s also impossible for me to feel jaded. I don’t have that jaded gene in me. ~ L.A. Record: Rosie Flores Interview ~ August 26, 2009 © L.A. Record
