    Yeah, that's what I remember when I would see them live, controlled power.

    So.... much..... percussion......groove overdose....


    hey, he shove humbuckers in that SG, or that stock?


    Looks like an SG special with white DiMarzio's.......that would explain why someone did that to the bridge pickup my '65 SG special.
    I've since restored it back to stock P90.

    I loved Gregg Rolie when he was Santana and early Journey. I've always loved the sound of a Hammond, and Gregg's voice was a good match for the Santana/Schon style.
    Carlos has the fastest right hand in the business. He can adjust his volume and tone after every short phrase and never miss a beat.
    Good post

    I love Jingo. Sound of my childhood.

    From Freaks and Geeks:

    Nick: So hold on a second. So they're called Santana, right? But that guy who's singing is not Santana.
    Daniel: No. Santana's the guitar player.
    Nick: Then how did he get them to name the band after him?
    Daniel: I don't know, man. Maybe he's just a badass.

    Two questions: 1) Who would want to follow those guys? 2) Who wouldn't want to get to play the opening Jingo line with The Santana Band behind them?

    Carlos fiddles with his guitar knobs more than anyone!

    That's what I was wondering! One Twin in the ear would be enough for me.

    I remember buying the album with "Jingo" on it.
    I had no clue what I bought ... 8th grader getting into records.
    It was the first hispanic rock band that I had ever heard of.
    CS was playing like a mad man!
    It was truly a great era of rock music ... nothing else like it.

    Wow, thoroughly impressed!

    For a guy who is not familiar with Santana's music from this era, what albums should I pick up?
