Biography

Hector Starc was born in Tres Arroyos in the province of Buenos Aires, on July 1, 1950. Son of airman father, his childhood was spent mainly in Tres Arroyos and in the city of Pergamino. In 1963, at the age of thirteen, his father dies and goes to live to Buenos Aires with his mother, and enters the Military College cadet.

One day an electric guitar listening on the radio and is fascinated by that sound. At the age of fifteen, he was given the first electric guitar. Initially, Starc took some guitar lessons, but his training was self-taught. He debuted as a musician at the age of fifteen. His education began at the Liceo Militar General San Martin, where he was cast for "musician". After he joined the “Instituto Flores” de Floresta where he earned his bachelor's degree.

Starc was influenced by guitarists like Ritchie Blackmore, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and Peter Green. Always hard lover of Gibson guitars, Starc still retains the same instrument. His musical debut occurred on September 4, 1965; where it formed partede classic neighborhood groups. Starc went through several groups: Los Walkers, Alta Tensión, Los Pop Singers, Trieste and Aquelarre, a group with which he spent four years in Spain. For forty years, Hector Starc was always linked to the angrier Rock, but to his credit he has the meticulous Aquelarre.

In 1970, the band split Almendra. With the separation of Almendra, it gives the birth of two new grouping, for Aquelarre side, composed of two ex-Almendra; Rodolfo García (drums) and Emilio del Guercio (bass and vocals), Hugo González Neira (keyboards) and Starc (guitar and vocals). Aquelarre released four record works long term and simple between 1972 & 1975 and three albums later, and was one of the most representative bands of that time in Argentina, years in which the Rock was clothed in Psicodelia, surrealism and was called Progressive Rock.

My great contribution there was that wild guitar Rock in a more poetic armed. They taught me not to touch all the time, to work according to the group. I remember that when I called was as if I had called the Beatles.

At the end of his career, Aquelarre musicians travel to Spain in search of new horizons for your music. After the stage in Spain, members Aquelarre return to Argentina, where he performs a concert farewell at Luna Park, and without their initial training, because González Neira stays in Spain and is replaced by musician Carlos Cutaia. The Spanish stage Aquelarre was the only time that Hector Starc devoted himself exclusively to music. Both before and after those years, although her life revolved around music and sound, its main activity was the entrepreneur in the mail item and then your sound company.

In the late seventies along with Carlos Alberto Rufino and Rodolfo Garcia formed Tantor, a Jazz Rock band; with whom he recorded two full-length albums: “Tantor” (1979) and “Mágico y natural” (1982). After the separation of Tantor, Starc is removed from the music for a few years; where it is dedicated to their daily lives. (The disc) had no impact because instrumental music here never hit.

In December 1996, Aquelarre was presented in the framework of the “Rock nacional: 30 años”, organized by Rodolfo Garcia. That event re-established the link between the group and urged them to begin a long series of private tests at the home of Garcia himself. The result was four functions at the Teatro Presidente Alvear in December 1998, during which the material to integrate hearts the fire was recorded. In 1999 they performed five times at the Teatro Maipo same way your project named Hector Starc Trio; Machi Madco with bass and Gustavo Ciardi on drums. This project had the support of Lito Vitale.

In the early 2000s, Starc was operated on for cancer, where he removed a kidney. On October 23, 2004, Starc celebrated his forty-year career with a show that was full of guests and had its most emotional moment with the Aquelarre meeting.

In 2010 he appeared in the “Pájaros volando” film, as guitarist of the band “Dientes de Limón”. Where he shares with contemporary musicians like Ciro Fogliatta, Willy Quiroga, Miguel Zavaleta and Claudia Puyó.

In 2013 he released his first solo material called “Héctor Starc”.
