We can only imagine the type of life Carlos Santana has led. The guitar god has been making albums for over 40 years and toured with some of the all-time greats. Now he’s ready to document the entire experience in a new book of memoirs set to hit shelves in 2014.

Little, Brown and Co. has agreed to publish Carlos’ autobiography and they expect big things from their new author. The company plans to print his memoirs in both English and Spanish and not hold anything back from the fans.

In a press release about the book, Little, Brown dropped quite a few names and promised readers that Santana would delve into every aspect of his life.

“As he tells his story, Carlos’ highest wish is to help readers discover the sanctity, grace, and divinity in themselves,” the company said. “This book is a testament to triumph, victory, and success. Carlos will share his memories of the immortals of music history: Miles Davis, Eric Clapton and Harry Belafonte, to name a few.”

And the list of people doesn’t stop there. The press release also mentioned political leaders who impacted Carlos’ career, including Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta.

Sounds to us like a VERY interesting read.
