Comment on the Height of Carlos Santana

Carlos is between 5'7 and 5'8" in the '70's my friend was entertainment committee for Northern University and he had a pic with Carlos, he was taller than Carlos by a good inch, my friend is 5'10". Neal Schon is napoleonish in high at about 5'4 or 5'5" which is why he always clunky shoes with big soles and heels

As listed. Schon is 5' 5" and does wear wedged up customs. Perry at 5' 7" seems open for debate....the same height as the Katy Perry?

@JA, yeah Schon's about 5 ft 5 that's true. and he wears clumpy shoes. Still one of my favourite guitarists who I play along with all the time. Check out Neal Schon - My Heart Will Go On on the tube, that goes for Rob too.

5' 8" -ish

doubt it he seems in the 5'8 zone. now barely this never ever was a true 5'9. And NO he looks 5'8 next to Freeman plus Freeman is barely 6'2 nowadays. he lost .5 inch i'd assume

My friend works for PRS and has met Carlos several times, my friend is 5'9" and in the picture I saw of him and Carlos he was taller than Carlos by a good inch. My friend said that Neal is about 5'4 or 5'5" at most, which is why you always see him with boots with big heels.

I saw Neal Schon a couple of days ago @ The NAMM Show. He walked right by me and at first, I didn't recognize him (mostly)because I assumed he was 5"10 or so...never gave it much thought, really... However, it's true: he's about 5'4" or so (estimated without shoes) blew me away.

Carlos and Bob Dylan look about the same height here, but Dylan's footwear may be "dodgy":

to be honest he is a good guitar player but he's practically deaf, his guitar is almost always out of tune in his songs and considering its an STUDIO album that's a real shame, but oh well that didnt stop him from being famous, maybe its his peculiarity. i am a guitarist too (hobby) and i know when a guitar or note is out of tune. ;)

he looks more of a 173cm guy actually and im suspicious because he wear some form of boots.

One of the greatest guitarists ever, and a nice guy. That makes him a giant in some ways.

I met Carlos Santana in the lobby of the Bayerische Hof Hotel in Munich some years ago. I showed him a folding electric guitar which I had invented (it is in Chet Atkins' book "Me and My Guitars"). Carlos was nice but I seem to remember that he was shorter than I am even though I am about 5'9" tall. Roger Field

I met the 2 of them together at some dump Days Inn in N.J. late 96 or early 97.maybe Im totally wrong.cause thats too soon to go back on tour.
D. Ray Morton said on 7/Aug/06
Yeah, thinking back now, it was definitely the fall of '95 at Madison Square Garden. They must have toured together more than once.
Glenn said on 6/Aug/06
Sure that wasnt '97? I saw the 2 of them arount that time.
D. Ray Morton said on 6/Aug/06
Barefoot, I'd say that Carlos is about my height, maybe a smidge taller. I met him when he was playing with Jeff Beck and Angelique Kidjo ('95?). A truly amazing man.
Glenn said on 6/Aug/06
thats about right.I wouldve said 5-8.
Shawn said on 20/Jan/06
I met Santana backstage in 2004. He gives the impression of being about 5'10", as I am 5'8.5" and he was definately a bit taller...
I don't recall what kind of shoes he had one, but 5'9.5-5'10" would be pretty much right on.

Ya at The Palms here in Vegas I was able to get a picture with him and I'm 6'3" and he came up to about my chin. I'd say 5'9" is correct.

I saw him perform live back when the Supernatural phenomenom was taking place and got to meet him afterwards. Very, very nice guy and he IS approx. this height.
