He won a record-tying nine GRAMMYs for a single project for 1999’s Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for “Smooth”) as well as three Latin GRAMMYs. He has also received the Billboard Century Award (1996), was ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1998), received the Billboard Latin Music Awards’ Lifetime Achievement honor (2009), and was the recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors Award (2013).
Among many other honors, Carlos Santana has been cited by Rolling Stone as #15 on their list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” And, with the 2014 release of Corazón, Santana surpassed the Rolling Stones and, along with Barbara Streisand, is one of only two music acts in Billboard history to score at least one Top 10 album for six consecutive decades from the 1960s on. Corazón (RCA/Sony Latin Iberia) features superstar collaborative performances by Latin Music’s finest. The album is certified U.S. Latin Double Platinum and was the top selling Latin Music album in the United States for six consecutive weeks. Santana is currently headlining a multi-year residency at House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas. On November 4, Santana will release his memoir THE UNIVERSAL TONE: Bringing My Story to Light.
About THE UNIVERSAL TONE: Bringing My Story to Light
Rarely, if ever, has there been such unbridled excitement and anticipation for the candid, stunning story of a rock and roll legend as there is now for Carlos Santana. THE UNIVERSAL TONE is not just the history of a rock band that sold millions of albums. It is the story, 67 years in the making, of an individual who is ceaselessly creative, spiritually focused, and yet fearlessly part of a world that brought him fame and adulation and challenged his dedication to his music and to doing good. Santana’s memoir is filled with finely recalled historic detail and visceral storytelling, beginning with his humble childhood in Mexico—one can smell the savory food of his early youth in Autlán, where he grew up the son of a violin player, feel the distinctive atmosphere of the El Convoy bar in Tijuana, where he played when he was just a teenager. Also here are Santana’s recollections of his emergence in the 1960s rock underground scene as a young adult after he moved to San Francisco. It’s a profoundly inspiring tale of spiritual commitment and musical fearlessness that does not balk at finding the humor in the world of high-flying fame, nor at speaking plainly of Santana’s personal revelations, and the divine and infinite possibility he sees in each person he meets.
