Full Gallery: Santana and Rod Stewart

I grew up in a house full of music, some on vinyl, others on tape, then there was the FM dial with classic rock and pop music. Through these mediums, I discovered and developed a liking for Santana and Rod Stewart. That liking has grown over the years as these artists have staked their claim in music history. Legends in their own right, they played the Xcel Energy Center together on their co-headlining tour.
