(Steven Senne/AP)

Guitar God Carlos Santana will soon join the ranks of Keith Richards, Grace Slick, Marilyn Manson…basically every rocker who’s had the wherewithal to capitalize on their legacy with a tell-all memoir, The Associated Press reports.

Santana signed an agreement with Little, Brown and Co. (the same imprint that published Keith Richards’ Life two years ago) to spill his life story in a book, due for release in 2014.

The 65-year-old musician is expected to dish on the likes of Eric Clapton and Herbie Hancock as he recounts his mammoth career.  His tale is sure to be juicy - you don’t sell 100 million records without a few gritty details.
