Description

The intimate and long-awaited memoir of guitar legend Carlos SantanaIn the realm of guitar gods, Santana stands alone for what has come to be called his "universal tone"—both the fact that you can recognize a Santana song from just one note and the fact that Santana is well known to believe music and soul are interconnected. In the category of major rock memoirs yet undone, this is at the top—a big autobiography by one of the most mysterious and influential musicians of the last fifty years. From growing up dirt poor in Mexico and suffering abuse to becoming a lowly dishwasher in the US with a hot guitar hand, to a person whom you might almost think is perpetually in a state of nirvana or at least bliss, this is the story of a fascinating man who brings the ideal combination of storytelling gold and a major marketing machine.This is one of the most sensory (and sensual) major rock bios you'll ever read. His voice comes through, deeply honest and frank, and from imagining the wisps of smoke from a long gone Miles Davis before Carlos' shows to describing the depths of his connection to sound, Santana brings a remarkable book to his huge following.

His is always a surprising sound, ahead of its time—true world music before the term was even invented, but uniquely American in its multicultural reach...Santana is an artist who transcends musical genres and touches the heart across all generations."

        Although Santana first captivated the world at his Woodstock performance, his intimate relationship with his guitar had long sustained him. Now, for the first time, the elusive guitarist tells his story in prose that is by turns ragged and sparkling. As he does with his music, Santana uses words to paint pictures, describing the streets of his Mexican hometown of Autlán, his earliest gigs at the El Convoy bar in Tijuana, and his move to San Francisco as a teenager, where his career first took off, with the help of, among others, famous rock promoter Bill Graham. Santana also discusses the sexual abuse he suffered as a child, perpetrated by a neighbor, and his parents’ efforts to downplay the incident. He strikes the perfect chord when he traces his ongoing spiritual evolution, attributing his success and the beauty of his music to what he calls the “universal tone”: “The story behind the stories, the music behind the music.... With it you realize you are not alone; you are connected to everyone.” For him, it all comes back to the music: “It’s the fastest way of getting away from the darkness of ego.... It’s a blessing to be able to play from your soul and to reach many people.”
