Carlos Santana Net Worth $40 Million
Santana is the primary exponent of Latin-tinged rock, particularly because of its mix of Latin percussion (congas, timbales, etc.) with bandleader Carlos Santana’s distinctive, high pitched lead guitar playing. The group was the last major act to emerge from the psychedelic San Francisco music scene of the 1960s and it enjoyed massive success in the close of the decade and in the early ’70s. The musical direction then changed to a more contemplative and jazzy style as the band’s early personnel gradually departed, leaving the name in the hands of Carlos Santana, who led the group to consistent commercial success over the following quarter century.
By the mid-’90s, Santana seemed spent as a commercial force on records, although the group continued to attract audiences for its concerts worldwide. But the band formed a surprising and monumental comeback in 1999 with Supernatural, an album featuring many guest stars that became Santana’s best selling release and won a raft of Grammy Awards. In 1966, he formed the Santana Blues Band with keyboard player and singer Gregg Rolie (born June 17, 1947, in Seattle, WA) and other musicians, the personnel changing frequently. The group was given its name because of a musicians union requirement that a single individual be named a band’s leader and it didn’t at first indicate that Carlos was in charge.
