José Alberto Fors Ferro (born 30 July 1958) is a Mexican singer and artist best known as the leading member of the bands Cuca and Forseps.[1]


Fors was born in Havana, Cuba, in 1958. At the age of three he and his family moved to Miami, Florida where he started to take courses in painting. In 1967 his family moved to Mexico City, where he lived for the remainder of his childhood. Later on he moved again to Guadalajara where he has lived most of his life. In 1976 he studied anatomical drawing with Robert Martinez and started working with musical groups such as Mask or Lepra. In 1985 he developed an ambitious project with Carlos Esegé (neé Carlos Sanchez-Gutierrez) called Duda Mata. In 1990, along with Ignacio González (drums), Galileo Ochoa (guitar) and Carlos Avilez (bass), he founded Cuca, a grouping that interprets irreverent songs in rock and hard rock style. In 1994 he left Cuca to initiate a new project, Forseps. In 2004 Cuca returned to the stages and recorded a live record on 14 May 2004 and in 2005 returned to the studio to record the album “Con Pelotas”. Fors currently lives in Guadalajara.
