Santana's star arrived in the era-defining late-1960s San Francisco Bay Area music scene with historic shows at the Fillmore and other venues. They emerged onto the global stage with an epic set at "Woodstock '69", the same year that their self-titled debut LP came out. Introducing Santana's first Top 10 hit, "Evil Ways," the disc stayed on Billboard's album chart for 2 years, and was soon followed by two more classics — and Billboard #1 albums — Abraxas and Santana III.
Forty years and as many albums later, Santana has sold more than 100 million records and reached over 100 million fans at concerts around the globe. To date, Santana has won ten GRAMMY® Awards and three Latin GRAMMYs. 1999's Supernatural — which has sold more than 26 million copies worldwide — including 9 GRAMMYs including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for "Smooth;" it is the most honored record in GRAMMY history. In 1998, the group was ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; its web page notes, "Guitarist Carlos Santana is one of rock's true virtuosos and guiding lights." Among many other honors, Carlos Santana has also been cited by Rolling Stone as #15 on their list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time," and #90 on their 2005 survey of the "100 Greatest Artists of All Time."
Most recently, Carlos Santana is the recipient of the Billboard Latin Music Awards' 2009 Lifetime Achievement honor (he also received Billboard's Century Award in 1996).
