That's the day before my birthday, I just might consider seeing Santana again. I haven't seen him since 1999.

Hmmm,theres a possiblity I may want to hit this one up also.Although its going depend on finances (doesn't it always) I really want to hit Winnipeg for the folk festival,which is my primary objective.

Think the last show I caught Santana at was Kingswood July 22nd '94 CSN played the next night.Great double header.

That was my first CSN show in 1994. I didn't see Santana for the first time until the year later with Jeff Beck and Keb 'Mo on the bill as well.

I would definitely try and get to the Winnipeg Folk Festival if I were you Esau, I now can't wait to see the Gourds at bonnaroo this year! Tomorrow I'll be looking for their CD's in Toronto.

That's funny, I went to both of those shows too. Didn't Fleetwood Mac open up for CSN that night?

I always used to get a season's pass for Wonderland, and I used to see a crapload of cheap shows there for years on end.

Yes hamilton, Fleetwood Mac did open up for CSN that night. The Fleetwood Mac lineup was Mick Fleetwood and John McVie with Dave Mason on guitar and vocals, Delany & Bonnie Bramlett's daughter on vocals and somebody else that I don't recall. But no Lindsey, Stevie or Christine!

That's a shame - caught that Kingswood show in 94 too, having been blown away at their show in Montreal at La Ronde in 90 - I'd hate to think that he's pandering to schmaltz (of course he is), but then he does seem have a kind of dialectic in his career. Maybe he needs to slip back into obsurity again before the magic starts again.

Who is Santana playing with these days? I caught a bit of a duet with him and Wayne Shorter on PBS a while ago and he was so respectful to Wayne. He'd play a nice little bit and then just stop entirely and give Wayne all the room he wanted.

Of course my dream of hearing disc two of Lotus is pretty much dead in the water now. Still one of the best albums I've ever heard.
