Wow, that's a pretty cool (and sad) story.

Was his name Carlos Santana?

I freaking hate Santana as much as anyone with decent taste in music, but damn that kid drummer at Woodstock stole the show with his solo.

Well they only have 2 originals in the band so I guess its possible.

I still occasionally fire that up on YouTube. It's just one of those moments when everything was perfect.

Aren't the members of Blink 182 all homeless now?

According to wiki all but one of them are still in the band and touring so no unless wiki is wrong.

Say what you will about Blink 182 but Amber is a classic song.

I think that Abraxas is an amazing album. everything after wards is a steep slope to the 80s, followed by a plunge into soundtracks for "zoomer" cafes and oxygen bars. The one time I was in an oxygen bar they were playing a dvd of a Santana concert on a wall, and it couldn't have been lamer.

I met a homeless guy who claimed to be monitored by the US government that implanted tracking devices in his kneecaps so the helicopters could find him.

I'm sure Carlos is abundantly grateful for this.

/tries not to take advantage of his own ridiculously-successful former bandmate

He just needs to take an arrow in the knee, clear that right up.

It is a shame Santana only made three albums and then died in a plane crash. Just think of all the great music that could have been, had he lived.

Wow - I don't know how you could hate Santana.  Sure, he's made some shiatty music over the years, but his heart was always in it.  Maybe his music isn't your thing.  I don't see the need for hate though.

I remember the first time I saw Santana.  It was just something to do.  I liked some of his old songs and I figured I'd shell out a few bucks to see him play.  I was blown away.  He played for 3 hours and I was hooked.

I've seen him a few times since then and it's always a good show.  Carlos has some personal demons in his life, but he genuinely seems like a good person.

I would be very surprised and disillusioned if Carlos doesn't spend a few bucks to help this guy get off the streets.

And what you said about the drummer at Woodstock =- his band has always kicked ass.Santana is a great guitarist and singer, but he wouldn't mean shiat to a tree without the musicians he surrounds himself with.

No, Carlos has a huge house out in Marin somewhere and is a complete douchebag.
