Miguel Bose at the Knight Center November 7

Miguel Bosé is a living freakin' legend. Maybe it was just his fate, or maybe it comes from being gifted progeny. (Bosé's mother was a famous Italian actress, and his father a celebrated Spanish bullfighter.) Or maybe it's the sort of thing for which he was simply hard-wired, readily exemplified by the respect he has for his audience.

"[I'm most proud of] understanding the career that I've developed, that up until today I credit to the open connection I share with my public. They know what I am, and who I am, and my disposition. And that's very healthy."

Whatever the case, you don't get to have a 30-year career, amass multitudes of fans around the globe, nab Grammys, and release 20-plus albums unless you're a legend in the making. And the runaway success of Bosé's last record, Papito, which was a celebration of those three decades — remaking his hits with the help of guests such as Ricky Martin, Julieta Venegas, Paulina Rubio, and Michael Stipe — is a testament to his having made it.
