Gregg Rolie joins ‘The Tony Tone Show’ on Thursday, April 7th to discuss the Santana reunion and new record!
“SANTANA IV”: This wildly anticipated studio album reunites the revered early ‘70s lineup of guitar icon Carlos Santana (lead guitar, vocals), Gregg Rolie (keyboards, lead vocals), Neal Schon (guitar, vocals), Michael Carabello (percussion) and Michael Shrieve (drums). The album signifies the first time in 45 years – since 1971’s multi-platinum classic ‘Santana III’ – that the quintet has recorded together. ‘Santana IV’ features 16 all-new tracks written and produced by the band that burst with the same unparalleled energy and superlative musicianship that made Santana a pioneering force in world music and a household name across the globe.
As a special offer for fans attending select shows on Santana’s current
‘Luminosity’ tour, a CD copy of ‘Santana IV’ is included with every pair of tickets.
