Carlos Santana, a Rock Legend, Passes out On Stage!

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer was asked for prayers by theatergoers in the Detroit region.
According to reports from the scene, rock icon Carlos Santana passed out on stage in the middle of a performance on Tuesday night in Michigan.

Although his condition is currently unknown, a video of him leaving the stage on a stretcher at the Pine Knob Music Theatre north of Detroit showed him waving to the crowd.

Santana, who turns 75 later this month, was requested for prayers as fans were urged to leave.

One of the best and most creative guitarists of all time, Santana, had to postpone a few shows in December of last year owing to what was then referred to as an “unscheduled cardiac operation.”

He later described his sensation to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, telling them that he had a 94 percent blockage in one artery. “I felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest,” he said.

With the release of his critically acclaimed album “Supernatural” in 1999, which included the song “Smooth” with vocals by Rob Thomas, he also made a significant comeback.

The song spent 12 weeks at No. 1 and 30 weeks in the top 10 on the Billboard charts:

Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, Santana is placed number 11 on Guitar World’s list of the 100 best guitarists of all time. He has received 10 Grammy Awards for his distinctive combination of rock, Latin, and jazz sounds.
