The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame called Carlos Santana “one of rock’s true virtuosos and guiding lights. Since 1966, he has led the group that bears his surname, selling over 30 million albums and performing before 13 million people.”

Santana first rose to fame at the end of the 1960’s with hits like “Evil Ways”“Jingo” and “Soul Sacrifice” off his band’s self-titled debut album. He could be considered a pioneer of Latin American rock, as he’s brought this genre of music to the top charts over a decades-long music career. Some of his more recent hits include “Game of Love” featuring Michelle Branch and “Smooth” featuring Matchbox Twenty's Rob Thomas.
