Santana

10/23/2014 : Carlos Santana achieved one of the most long shot comebacks in music history when his late Nineties album release Supernatural hit Number One, 28 years after Santana's last number one, the longest stretch between number ones in history. Over the years since their emergence at Woodstock, the band gradually faded in popularity. Santana was finally inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 and it seemed to jumpstart the band's career; Supernatural was Carlos' first album in seven years, overseen by his onetime Columbia Records mentor Clive Davis who paired Santana up with a number of artists from various genres. One such collaboration with Matchbox 20 singer Rob Thomas on the hit single, Smooth gave Santana their first number one single ever and it happened on this date, 10/23 in 1999.
