Health Scare for Legendary Guitarist Carlos Santana

Rock legend Carlos Santana is recovering after collapsing during a performance last night. Doctors say the 74-year-old guitarist was overcome by heat exhaustion and dehydration when he collapsed about an hour into the show at the Pine Knob Music Theater near Detroit. Medical staff attended to the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer before he was carried offstage. In a Facebook post last night, Santana wrote, "to one and all thank you for your precious prayers. Cindy and I we are good just taking it easy. Forgot to eat and drink water so i dehydrated and passed out. Blessings and miracles to you all."

In December, Santana canceled performances of his Las Vegas residency at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino to recover from what was described as "an unscheduled heart procedure." He also announced in February that he was "doing well" after testing positive for COVID-19.
