Even at the age of 68 Mexican-American musician Carlos Santana is still considered one of the best guitarists around. Since the late 60s with his unique version of rock/salsa fusion Carlos Santana has been a big name in the rock industry. He has cited such legendary musicians as Jimi Hendrix, B.B. King, Mike Bloomfield, and John Lee Hooker as his major influences.
In the late 90s, after disappearing for a bit, Santana came to the forefront again. He began a trend of hooking up with some of the hottest names in music. Santana recorded singles with Nickleback’s Chad Kroeger (“Into the Night”), Michelle Branch (“The Game of Love”), Rob Thomas (“Smooth”), Shakira (“Illegal”), Jennifer Lopez (“This Boy’s Fire”), and Steven Tyler (“Just Feel Better”).
In a career that has seen him win 10 Grammy Awards, 3 Latin Grammy Awards and sold over 80 million albums Santana has been able to remain relevant no matter the musical climate.
