Los Fanáticos, a rock group from Murcia, Spain, perform their own version of Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers' 80's hit, "I'm Not Your Man."

In a February 2013 interview with La Opinión de Murcia, the band talks about their recent tour, being a band from the 80's and recording again after 25 years. Their brand new album, Malos Hábitos (Bad Habits), is a self-released LP that the band is currently promoting with a tour across Spain.

In the interview, Los Fanáticos also discuss the band's history with the Young Rumblers' song and their cover version:

Question: You have included a Spanish version of "I'm Not Your Man" by Tommy Conwell and  the Young Rumblers. What's so special about that song for you?

Los Fanáticos: It's a song from our years of touring the Latin bar scene that we first heard about from our friend Jose Antonio Martinez 'Chota'. It always had a lot of power for us when we played it.
So we decided to incorporate it when Peter brought us his version in Spanish.
     We kept to the original, but did our own verse at the beginning before the main song kicks in.
