^ Fair enough, Blasting !
Samba pa ti is a slow-burning beauty of a guitar workout, and I`ve just listened to Europa for the first time - a live version in which Santana holds one note for an extraordinary 17 seconds. So I guess he did take his own advice after all.

Luckily for me, what I wrote was "I`ve never seen much evidence....", a sentence which I`m now prepared to retract in favour of "Having seen Blasting`s evidence, Santana obviously practised what he preached..."

Are we good ?

Where did you watch this interview? I have watched it, too and I believe that it was from a documentary called: "The History of Rock N' Roll", but I'm not sure.

Hey, yes ! That`s right. I`m sure that`s where I saw it too. It was a good series, wasn`t it ? In about seven parts as I recall. In the same program I was also impressed when Santana started talking about fame. Do you rembember that bit, R & R Clown ? He said that being a good person is more important to him than being famous; that having a Rolls Royce is nice, but a Rolls Royce can`t give you a hug at the end of a hard day.
That`s an unusually sensible remark from a super star !

I think I remember the Rolls Royce part. And that were maybe the best documentary series I've seen, especially the first half (they were 10, not 7). I watched them around the time I started listening to music as a hobby and they guided me very well. I learned lots of things, too. I haven't seen a documentary with that much celebrities in it. There were almost all of the most famous living musicians. And, Santana, he is a smart guy. It's very difficult to remember that being a good person is more important than being famous when you become famous.

Santana is a guru. The guy is very wise, he's been known to preach his philosophies all throughout his concerts.

^ I didn`t know that. I just knew he did that Love,Devotion, Surrender album with John McLaughlin. Here in Mexico, they love him, of course; in fact many Mexicans mistakenly credit him with writing "Black Magic Woman" too.

^ Thanks. I`ll try to remember that when I`m famous.

Has anyone mentioned this guy yet ?
Probably not the world`s greatest guitarist, but I like his hard-hitting, no-nonse approach:-

It`s a guy called Walter Trout, and some of his material has fewer lyrics and more guitar soloing.
Didn`t notice it, but yes, he does sound a bit like Warren Haynes. In fact, I read that that`s why WT isn`t better known - he always ends up sounding like someone else you`ve heard.
