What that is, exactly — sixties counterculture, artistic expression, staying power, sheer chops — depends on
whom you ask, but in the end they’re
bound up with nearly 50 years of pop culture. So what happens when these names pass
to the next generation — to the kids trying to find their way in an industry transformed
since the days it made their folks famous? That’s just what Salvador Santana, 28, and
Grahame and Brian Lesh, ages 26 and 23, are looking to discover. So, too, are fellow
Marin products Lara Johnston, Miles Schon, Monroe Grisman and Sara Wasserman, who
find themselves following in the footsteps, more or less, of a famous parent — even
when they know it won’t be easy.
IN MARIN COUNTY AND WELL
BEYOND, THE NAMES SANTANA
AND LESH MEAN SOMETHING.
Son of Carlos Santana, guitar and vocals
Salvador Santana liveS in los angeles, but
don’t hold it against him; he was born at Marin
General, spent his early years in the hills of Mill
valley and later lived in San rafael. He moved
to Southern California after high school, for one
reason only: to make it in the music biz.
