His debut as a singer was at the age of three, when his father (Antonio Aguilar) had a concert in Madison Square Garden in the city of New York. As a teenager, Aguilar was a rock music fan and had a band called "Equs". The band did not last long, but that led him to make his first album. Aguilar's musical influences were Pink Floyd and The Who, among other rock bands. Nevertheless, while leaving his teenage years behind, he turned to Tejano music once again, mixing the traditional style with his modern pop influences and becoming a strong identity in the Latin scene, in addition to developing a successful acting career.Aguilar received the 2,474th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on July 26, 2012, which was placed next to the star of his father.
