Santana
« on: January 19, 2016, 10:26:56 PM »
One of the premier guitarists from the Woodstock era all through the seventies and up to the present undoubtedly is Carlos Santana and his band was the springboard for Greg Rolie and Neil Schon who would go on to form Journey. Numerous members too many to mention have passed through the ranks of Santana through the years but the late sixties and 70's incarnations were always my favorites. He also had some hits and good stuff in the 90's and even into the 2000's with his multiple many guest singer albums which also spawned a few big hits. the guy can flat out jam with a passion that few had save for maybe Gary Moore, Stevie Ray Vaughn and a few others. my proof to back that statement up is as follows.

We'll start way back, he was every bit as good as Hendrix if not better

Santana releasing new album with the old Santana lineup of Carlos, Greg Rolie, Neil Schon, Michael Shrieve, and Michael Carabello. First time that lineup has played together since Santana 3. Those first three albums were awesome.

Can't wait to pick this up and hear it.

That new Santana album sounds pretty good judging from the amazon preview song teasers and the excellent reviews it is getting on there.

Very cool, they are releasing a live album and dvd of the limited date run of live shows the reunited old lineup played for the release of the Santana IV album. I will definitely be picking this up.

Yeah, that looks good. A good half of that set list looks awesome, there are however several songs I'm not familiar with but this is likely to be a one time thing. So it should be worth picking up and checking out.
