In 1994, he created the rock band, Mojinos Escozios, when he met the other members, Vidal Barja Sr., Vidal Barja Jr., Juan Ramón Artero, and Juan Carlos Barja, in Mollet del Vallés, Barcelona.

Radio[edit]

He has his own program on Spanish radio station Cadena 100 titled La junla hosted by José Antonio Abellán; and another with the famous program Afectos Matinales on National Spanish Radio with Jordi Tuñón and Queralt Flotats.

He was the center of some controversy for comments made on La junla Sálvame's Jorge Javier Vázquez.[clarification needed][1] Vázquez sued Rodriguez for defamation and was awarded €250.00.[2] However, Vazquez was actually only compensated with 10.000 €.[why?][3]

Television[edit]

El Sevilla has appeared on several television programs such as Andreu Buenafuente's La cosa nostra, Jesús Vazquez's La central and as an anchorman on La noche de Fuentes y Cía. by Manel Fuentes. He also made cameos on others productions, including Plats bruts, 7 Vidas, Los Lunnis and Land Rober, and was a panel judge on Gente de primera.

In February 2010 he appeared as a contestant on ¡Más que baile! over Jorge Javier Vazquez's protests.[4] The episode was controversial due to some alleged favouritism toward one of the participants, Belén Esteban: Despite her poor rehearsal and performance, she won.[5]
