Santana, Soul Sacrifice

Carlos Santana, Mexico’s answer to Slash, turns a very impressive 62 today. And what a 62 years he’s enjoyed. He’s spent most of them biting his bottom lip whilst interpreting some heavy jazz rock psychedelic salsa fusion grooves, mixed with a little bit of sensual pop. That’s just his vibe. Anyway, we decided to get him a gift, so we all wolfed down space cakes and moon pie, headed naked into a big lake of rain water, and discussed what to get him whilst doing an improvised version of Tai Chi. It boiled down to a toss up between some gentleman’s underpants, or a clip from his Woodstock performance in 1969. In the end we got him both. Happy Birthday Santana!
