Santana Talks Forthcoming Reunion Album
Guitar icon and singer Carlos Santana, lead vocalist and keyboardist Gregg Rolie, guitarist Neal Schon, percussionist Michael Carabello and drummer Michael Shrieve last worked together on the multi-platinum record Santana III in 1971.
Santana, who formed fusion supergroup Supernova last year with John McLaughlin, Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter, says: "It was magical. We didn't have to try to force the vibe - it was immense. From there, we then needed to come up with a balance of songs and jams that people would immediately identify as Santana."
"When you can go back and break new ground with joy and determination - and some whoop-ass energy - it gets you going. I think we achieved something very rare. This music was screaming to come out of us. It wasn't about nostalgia. It was about passion." Read more here.
