After several years spent working as a dishwasher in a diner and playing for spare change on the streets, Santana decided to become a full-time musician. In 1966, he formed the Santana Blues Band which became known for their highly original blend of Latin-infused rock, jazz, blues, salsa, and African rhythms. The band's early success, capped off by a memorable performance at Woodstock in 1969, led to a recording contract with Columbia Records, then run by Clive Davis (A+E Networks 2013). "Evil Ways," went triple platinum, selling over four million copies and remaining on the Billboard charts for over two years. Abraxas, released in 1970, went platinum, scoring two more hit singles, "Oye Como Va" and "Black Magic Woman."

DJ Williams Projekt Two days ago on Sunday, December 9th I went with my roommate, to see the DJ Williams Projekt, one of the most popular bands of Richmond in recent times. The group consisted of DJ Williams on guitar, also added vocals from time to time, Dusty Simmons on the drums, Brian Mahne on the keyboard, Gordon Jones on the saxophone, Todd Herrington on the bass, and Mark Ingraham on the trumpet. Café Diem, which holds an open mic night every Sunday, is where this sextet performed for us. It is a small restaurant located on N. Sheppard Street in Richmond. Besides for open mic night on Sundays, they have live music every night of the week.
That same year she opened her first boutique in Corpus Christi, Texas. Then on March 31, 1995 Selena was murdered by Yolanda Saldivar, her best friend and president of her fan club. Following the weeks after Selena's death, "People" magazine released a commemorative issue covering Selena's death, one in English and the other in Spanish. Within a matter of days after it first appeared on the newsstand, the Spanish-language edition sold out everywhere that "People" had to go into 6 more reprint sessions. After six successful reprints of the Spanish-issue, "People" decided to release a Spanish-language version of their magazine, "People en Española" which became a popular selling magazine.
Joan Marie Larkin was born on 22 September 1958, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA. As Joan Jett, she is an American rock star, best known for being the front-woman of the band “Joan Jett and the Blackhearts”. The bands anthem of rock and roll, “I Love Rock `n` Roll” was no.1 on the Billboard Hot 100 from 20th March to 1st May 1982. During that time her net worth, and also her fame, gradually grew, as a result of platinum-selling records. Before the Blackhearts, the band with which Jett rose to international fame, she had been in a similar project called “The Runaways” in 1975; an all-girl punk-rock band which Jett co-founded with drummer Sandy West.
Guitarist Dave Mustaine answered another one of Ulrich’s adds. Hetfield and Ulrich recruited Mustaine only after seeing the expensive equipment he owned. Metallica recorded their first song “Hit the Lights” in early 1982 with Mustaine on lead guitar, Hetfield on rhythm and vocals, and Ulrich playing drums and bass only for this specific recording (MTV.com). Hetfield and Ulrich asked bassist Cliff Burton to join their band in fall of 1982 after being “blown away” at one of Burton’s previous band’s shows. Burton initially declined the offer, but by the end of the year he accepted on the condition the band move to the San Francisco Bay Area.
After that, he signed with Def Jam and released his next album, "In My Lifetime, Volume 1." This album had much to do with Jay-Z's life in his earlier years. It won platinum status.

With continued success, Jay-Z's net worth is expected to reach $1 billion or more within his lifetime.
Was it only twenty-three years ago? It seems like a lifetime, or two, has passed since that May night in 1975 when Led Zeppelin, a heavy metal, innovative band of Englishmen, clouded the Fall of Saigon by performing one of the few acts more monumental – in those faraway times - than the Communist victory in the Vietnam War. Three months following the debut of Zeppelin’s double-album, Physical Graffiti, the four powerful musicians instinctively blew the roof off the Earls Court Arena in West London, and, for the better part of two hours, strutted across the incandescent stage, demonstrating their musical prowess in front of 19,000 chin-dropped fanatics. I often picture myself residing during this magical time period of reinvention, activism,
