Angel Martin, known for his televised monologues, is one of them. In 2017 was admitted to a psychiatric hospital where the first fortnight he was tied to a bed, between delusions that clouded his mind. Now he told it in an autobiographical book.

There are those who are addicted to drugs, there comes a day when they don’t talk about it: idolized rockers or simple young misfits who believe they have reached paradise.
