Guitar World spoke with P.O.D. guitarist Marcos Curiel about his first guitar hero, who he admits is, “Carlos Santana. I grew up in a Hispanic neighborhood in south San Diego knowing that he came from Tijuana—that’s where he started playing. I’d hear all the stories from my family when I was growing up. My dad had all the vinyl. He played it so much that it just grew on me as a kid. It’s great stuff and I still love it today. Old Santana, new Santana—it doesn’t matter. The guy plays with so much heart, and I love that.”
