His musical career is characterized by constant changes of bands. He started his contact with music when he was eight, he had to go to the USA due to an asthmatic disorder. His stay in that country coincided with «Beatlemania»’s boom which influenced decisively on his future. When he was very young he could not stay in the discotheques so he formed small groups such as The Alley Cats (where he played the guitar) and The Lords of London, where he played the drums. After his comeback, at the end of the '60, he was a regular at«La Manzana», one of the few discotheques of Buenos Aires at that time, visited by Billy Bond, the most polemic pioneer of Argentine rock. In that place he met Pappo - another «regular» of the place, as well as Nacho Smilari and Héctor Starc – who in 1970 asked him to join the group as bassist of the first line up of his group Pappo´s Blues, formed also by Black Amaya in drums and a brief stay of bassist Vitico. This first line up of Pappo´s Blues made one record in 1971, which was quite successful. Simultaneously, and under the pseudonym «Davies», Lebón participated - with Black Amaya – in the recording of the record La Pesada del Rock and Roll, together with the above-mentioned Billy Bond. His necessity to be active made him accompany the singer Carlos Bisso and left for Spain España, where he met Pappo again, with whom he formed a short lasting group including Ciro Fogliatta. At the end of 1971 he was the drummer of Color Humano, group led by Edelmiro Molinari. With this line up he recorded the debut album with six tracks for the company Microfón, where many musicians participated. In 1972 Lebón left the group and Oscar Moro replaced him. That year, David was the bassist of Pescado Rabioso, group created by Luis Alberto Spinetta after his group Almendra. Pescado Rabioso, formed by Spinetta in guitars and voice, Carlos Cutaia in keyboards, Amaya in drums and Lebón in bass, released double album called "Desatormentándonos". In 1973, the band they tried to make a double album, but different production problems made it impossible to carry out and it ended up with the end of the group. Also in 1973, David Lebón recorded his first solo album "David Lebón" which had a strong rock and rock music. "32 macetas" – a song that he would record years later-, "Dos edificios dorados" and "Hombres de mala sangre" were some of the best songs of this record made in a duet with Liliana Lagardé. At that same time he collaborated constantly playing the guitar in Sui Generis and the keyboards in the symphonic group Espíritu. He formed his own group in1974 (Lila); he also participated in the second recording of "La Biblia", the legendary album of Vox Dei, and that year he returned with Pappo´s Blues and La Pesada. At the end of 1975 he created Polifemo, a rock and roll band, with Juan Rodríguez in drums and Rinaldo Rafanelli in the bass, both former Sui Generis. In '76, after presenting his record "Polifemo", the specialized critics were hard with them, which led to his decadence. «I left Polifemo with the intention of not having any other group, willing to travel - said David in an interview made by Pelo magazine, in'78 -, before Charly proposed me to do something together. The only former member of Polifemo with whom he got along was (...) Juan Rodríguez. He asked me what I was going to do and I felt like playing again. At the same time, I was with two guys from the Misión, who played very well. With this new group, David started to grow as musician, as he said, «...he started to like listening to the other instruments, even to let them play». Together with Rodríguez, the musicians from La Misión and many others (Pino Marrone, Aníbal Kerpel, among others), David Lebón formed Seleste. This group, with a good perspective, was interrupted when David joined Charly Garcia in Brazil in the project Serú Girán Between 1978 and 1982 he was member of Serú Girán, together with Charly García, Pedro Aznar and Oscar Moro, where he was distinguished as "Best Guitarist" the five running years . Although he always played a secondary role behind the incredible figure of Charly García, with "Bicicleta" (1980) his performance as composer y vocalist stood out. In 1980 "Nayla" was released his second solo album of David Lebón. This album, which was delayed many times due to an accident David’s daughter, was originally going to be a double album, but no company accepted it. «Not even Yes records double albums», They even told him He had no choice, then, but to choose the best tracks – some new, others from his old group Seleste – and record them with Aznar, Moro, Raffanelli, Diego Rapoport and Ricardo Roth. With Serú Girán split up, his production as soloist increased with many long plays. These were: "El tiempo es veloz" (1982), with the song with the same name and "No confíes en tu Suerte"; "Siempre Estaré" (1983), - with successful tracks like "El rock de los Chicos Malos" and "Quiero Regalarte mi Amor" -; "Desnuque" (1984), a homage to rock and roll with songs like "Qué te pasa Argentina", "32 macetas" and "Hacelo hoy Conmigo"; "Y si de Algo Sirve" (1985) and "7 x 7" (1986). In 1987 he collaborated with Charly in his LP "Parte de la Religión", where he recorded some guitar solos. In 1989, he recorded "Contactos", recorded that year, like «a personal encounter between mind, body and soul to reach the equilibrium that improves my relationship with the world, the people and my Creator». At the end of 1992 Serú Girán played together again. They recorded a studio album and a double live album. They made a successful tour (due to more to the quantity of public rather than the musical quality) and they broke up for good. Lebón had two years of musical silence, but he appeared in different magazines because of his unstable relationship with ex model Pata Villanueva. In '95 he started playing again, first at the Tribute to Carlos Gardel organized by the Secretaría de Cultura y el Multimedios América and then, accompanied by Daniel Castro (bass) and Daniel Colombres (drums), he played some songs from his long career. His style of playing the guitar is purely blues and rock and roll, with great influences of B.B.King. David Lebón defines himself as a non-professional music, in both ways: as a musician, who has not been contaminated by show business, but at the same time undisciplined and intuitive in the creation. His situation is quite strange. His personality has been eclipsed by others stronger than his, like Pappo, Spinetta or Charly. Through out his career he was part of many groups, and he did so playing the four basic instruments: guitar, keyboards, bass and drums, although he has always expressed his feelings towards the electric guitar.
