Carlos Santana

Today is Carlos Santana's 66th birthday.  I've been very lucky to have seen him 4 times:  3 times in Colorado (Pepsi Center, Fiddler's Green and Red Rocks - my favorite venue of all) and then, last year in Columbia, MD at the Merriweather Post Pavilion.  Opening for him and his band was the fabulous Allman Brothers Band.  The date was July 30, 2012, which just happens to be Buddy Guy's birthday. The ABB played first, followed by Santana and his band, and finally, there were a couple of songs with members of both bands.  To say that the concert was wonderful is a huge understatement.

The last picture shows one of the Allman Brothers' guitarists, Derek Trucks, playing with Santana.
