Latino rocker Carlos Santana is recovering after being snubbed by Sting and Sheryl Crow, who have both refused to take part in the guitarist's new duets album.

The SMOOTH star had invited the two superstars to join him on his new project, but both declined without giving him a reason.

Santana says, "I don't know why Sting and Sheryl Crow didn't want to work with me, but I'm not going to take it personally."

Colombian pop star Shakira is another invited no-show - she declined to record a vocal for the album because she's too busy.

The stars who have agreed to join Santana in the studio include MICHELLE BRANCH and reggae star Sean Paul.
