Santana, who will turn 75 in a few weeks, pioneered the incorporation of Latin rhythms with the rock genre in the band he founded in 1966. Since then, his character and his music have made history and received every possible recognition: is in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and in the Rolling Stones magazine’s list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time.
The artist’s manager announced – according to ABC channel – that Santana was taken to the hospital for tests, but his condition is good. The cause of the disease was dehydration and heat.
