DAN RATHER SITS DOWN WITH GRAMMY® WINNING MUSIC LEGEND CARLOS SANTANA IN AN ALL-NEW EPISODE OF THE BIG INTERVIEW, NEXT TUESDAY, JAN. 20, AT 8pE ON AXS TV
The original guitar hero, Carlos Santana, rocks THE BIG INTERVIEW as Dan Rather sits down with the 10-time GRAMMY® winner on Tuesday, January 20, at 8pE.
In the intimate and in-depth discussion, the rock n’ roll pioneer opens up about his willingness to mentor up-and-coming musicians, as well as the birth of creativity, and the art of playing the guitar. With a career that spans almost 50 years, Santana remains one of the most important and influential artists in the industry today. Perhaps best known for his trademark fusion of rock and Latin music, Santana rose to fame in the ‘60s and ‘70s with his self-titled band, after taking Woodstock by storm with a performance of their classic single “Soul Sacrifice.” The band would find even more critical acclaim during his tenure, with smash hits such as “Evil Ways” and “Black Magic Woman.”
Additionally, Santana has built an unprecedented legacy for himself as a highly successful solo artist, whose works have defied genre and had a tremendous impact on fellow axe-masters such as Prince and Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett, just to name a few. Because of this, he has been sought after to collaborate with an impressive and eclectic roster of heavy-hitters that reads like a who’s who of entertainment, featuring Willie Nelson, Gloria Estefan, Steven Tyler, Cee Lo Green, Jerry Garcia, Yo-Yo Ma, Eric Clapton, and the King of Pop, himself, Michael Jackson, among others. With his wealth of experience and wisdom, Carlos Santana is one of the most intriguing men in the industry, making this a must-see event that music fans won’t want to miss!
