It was in the late 70's when a group of high school and college students decided to form a band influenced by the English and American rock movement.
Although the disco was in full swing supported by radio and television these young people decided to undertake an adventure of playing "covers" of English-speaking groups. The first massive presentation was in a high school which was announced the concert of Crazy Lazy and from which the entries exceeded all projections as they expected around 500 students and were more than 4,000 who packed the central courtyard of the Tec de Monterrey Although they played music from English-speaking groups, little by little they got involved in the public's taste to such an extent that they began to fill theaters and auditoriums of followers who would see them and listen to the covers.
It was not until around 1982 when they decided to try playing a couple of original songs in Spanish and it was at a concert at the Auditorio Luis Elizondo where they made known the beginning of a new facet. National Rock magazines and the covers of the culture section of all the local newspapers highlighted the presentations of Crazy Lazy.
During a presentation at the Gimnasio Nuevo León in which they alternated with the Sombrero Verde Group, now Maná was given an independent producer (Cesar Gomez) to tell them that he wanted to produce them and that if they were willing to leave everything for Rock and there was a rearrangement of members. Of the originals Javo Benítez, Toño Benítez, Raúl Villarreal, Gustavo Garza, Raúl Lozano and Aldo García were only going to be the first 3 in this new adventure.

For a few weeks they were looking for a bassist and vocalist until finally they decided to invite Javier Villarreal younger brother of Raúl to play bass and Sergio "Chester Gomar who was the vocalist of the opener group (Draft) of Gimnasio Nuevo León in the touched mentioned above.
For about a year they devoted themselves to composing and rehearsing daily for an average of 4 hours to prepare for the study and it was not until 1985 when they finally released "Que Viva el Rock". This recording was made in a week under the technique of semi-live in which drums, bass and 2 guitars were recorded in one shot and only the requinto and the voice complemented it in different shots. Under the independent label of CMG by Cesar Gómez began to distribute with all that this limited his record material.
With this cover letter and no longer playing covers, Crazy Lazy had presentations in Chihuahua, Leon, Tampico, Cd Victoria, Monterrey and Mexico City sharing scenarios with groups such as El Tri, Botellita de Jerez, Neon, Raxe and Niña Violeta. Likewise it was the only Regiomontan group that in the 80s, had 2 presentations in what at the time was the birthplace of the Rock Nacional called Rockotitlan.
After the earthquake in Mexico City in September 1985, Crazy Lazy participated in several events to raise funds for the victims of the situation that caused the UN to give them recognition for their altruistic work.
