Family: Alejandro Escovedo

All kids stuff for the singer-songwriter.

What sort of family do you come from?

There were twelve children and eight of us became professional musicians. My father and mother were very supportive, even though I don’t think my dad wanted me to go into this business, because we’d all dealt with my older brothers’ highs and lows. My father went out and bought our first forty-fives and my mother was an Elvis freak, so I was inundated with that. But once I got into the Velvet Underground my mother wasn’t as supportive. She actually broke my Velvet Underground record because she hated that song Heroin.
