Man its a hot one...

Man it's a hot one,
Like seven inches from the midday sun...

Happy Birthday to Carlos Santana, age 64. In 1969, at age 22, he played Woodstock before he even had a record contract or had cut an album. Today, Rolling Stone magazine counts Santana as one of the top 15 guitarists of all time.

Only in the top 15? Dag, that's almost harsh. "Supernatural" is a superb album, and this collaboration with Rob Thomas is terrific. I always loved the nod he gave to Elton John in the lyrics. Of course, Elton John was giving a nod to Ben E. King, so doubly nice. Now I've got to dig this out of the CD's been too long, thanks!
