Carlos Santana is a legendary Mexican-American guitarist who has greatly influenced the music industry over the last 5 decades. However, he has attained all this success as a result of much hard work right from an early age.
Being raised immersed in a musical setting with a father who was a Mariachi (Traditional music from Western Mexico) musician, Carlos picked up an earnest passion for music and learnt to play the violin when he was 5.
3 years later, he picked up another aspect of music – the guitar, which unknowing to him was an investment into his future. His love for the guitar ended up influencing his younger brother who is also a successful guitarist like himself.
Carlos persistency and consistency over the years has led to a release of 7 studio albums. In 2013, he was acknowledged by the Kennedy Centre as he was named an honouree. Carlos has won 10 awards and been nominated for 4 others. He also has his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Over the years, Carlos physique, appearance and even sense of style have changed as he has matured. In the early years of his career, he uses to keep a curly hair and had a pretty lean physique.
Though old age has kicked in and Carlos has gotten a bit bald, yet he still endeavors to maintain as much of his curly hair as he can keep.
In order to cover the bald patch on his head while still revealing the long curly hair that lays on his neck and shoulders, Carlos has resulted to always wearing a hat which has perfectly formed a new fashion style for him.
In comparison to how he looked at the early years of his career, Carlos has put on some weight that is just adequate for him. Either he has really good genes, or his active lifestyle has played a really significant role in maintaining a good body at the age of 70. We can definitely say he looks really fly for his age.
