I saw the original band on their first national tour at the Arena in Philly. They blew me away completely, and they also blew away Chicago, The Young Bloods, and Canned Heat. They came on second and that was the highlight of the show.

"Oooh, I just LOVE Carlos Santana! Ever since I was a little girl..."




"I've, uh, got some tickets to a Santana/Fish show... "

I love me some Santana. Especially everything up until the 80s. I love Abraxas, Caravanserai, Welcome, Lotus etc. The bands were amazing. And Carlos is such a great melody player - that's why greats such as Joe Zawinul, Wayne Shorter and Miles Davis have acclaimed him.


Sometimes his solos and more recent records verge on self-parody and slef-replication but I love his tone and how the man plays,


His biography makes interesting reading:

a mariachi violinist turned blues guitarist turned jazz fan turned rock star I guess!
