SANTANA




Today Santana revolves around one of its founders, Carlos Santana, and employs current stars to sing lead vocals--from Rob Thomas to Michelle Branch to Placido Domingo. But the original band (now enshrined in the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame) was less Carlos' creation than one with equal members.

Current Santana musicians:
Carlos Santana
Chester Thompson
Raul Rekow
Karl Perazzo
Tony Lindsay
Andy Vargas
Benny Rietveld
Dennis Chambers
Jeff Cressman
Bill Ortiz
Myron Dove
