Santana is a band
consisting of a flexible number of musicians accompanying Carlos Santana
since the late 1960s. The range of these artists has varied greatly.
Just like Santana himself, the band is known for helping make Latin rock
famous in the rest of the world.
The band was formed in
1966 in San Francisco. The first members were Carlos Santana (lead
guitar), Tom Fraser (rhythm guitar), Mike Carabello (percussion), Rod
Harper (drums & percussion), Gus Rodriguez (bass guitar) and Gregg Rolie
(lead vocals & keyboards). In the following years the members of the
group changed frequently for a number of reasons, and from 1971 to 1972
there was a brief separation between the group and Santana.
In 1998, the group was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, with Carlos Santana, Jose Chepito Areas, David Brown, Mike Carabello, Gregg Rolie and Michael Shrieve being honored.
Carlos Augusto Santana Alves (born 20 July, 1947) is a Mexican-born American Grammy Award-winning rock musician and guitarist. Santana became famous in the late 1960s and early 1970s with his band, Santana, which pioneered a blend of rock, salsa and jazz fusion. The band's sound featured his melodic, blues-based guitar lines set against Latin percussion such as timbales and congas. Santana continued to work in these forms over the following decades. He experienced a sudden resurgence of popularity and critical acclaim in the late 1990s. Rolling Stone also named Santana number 15 on their list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time in 2003.
