    Guitarist Carlos Santana is an incurable romantic. In what is akin to asking your beloved to marry you via a Jumbotron at a sporting event, Santana proposed to his girlfriend and drummer Cindy Blackman during his July 9 concert in Tinley Park, Ill. After she accepted, they smooched and the audience broke out into cheers. "Cindy and I are blessed to have found each other," Santana told Us in a statement. "Being in love is a gift from the universe, and the spirit and vibrations that come with it are infinitely powerful. I look forward to expressing that incredible energy through my music, and in helping to tip the balance toward more love in the world with what Cindy and I share."

    Blackman is a jazz and rock drummer who has recorded and toured extensively with Lenny Kravitz. She's also played with a wide range of artists, including Pharoah Sanders, Cassandra Wilson and Bill Laswell. It is going to be quite the musical marriage. This will be Santana's second marriage; his wife of 34 years, Deborah, filed for divorce in 2007.

    Should the pair collaborate extensively on music once they wed?
