Carlos Santana's Celestial Ambitions

(Classic Rock) Carlos Santana may have spent nearly 50 years recognised as one of the world's leading guitarists but there's one more thing he'd like to achieve with his instrument.

The multi-award winning pioneer, named the fifteenth-best axeman of all time by Rolling Stone, would love to experiment with what he calls "celestial" soundscapes, and he believes only two other musicians have been there before him.

Santana tells Music Radar: "Like Jimi Hendrix before he went to the National Anthem, or before he played Wild Thing. There was a celestial texture he achieved and the only other person who got to that same place was Stevie Ray Vaughan. Here it comes: celestial supersonic textures."
