PiercingMetal Thoughts: The classic era of Santana with all those wonderful hits sung by the great Gregg Rolie are songs that I remember so fondly and can say that I grew up alongside. I was too young to be a part of the Woodstock experience of course and NO I was not conceived there in case you wondered, but my family always had music on and fortunately for me my Mom was someone who always left the Rock station on. I guess she realized I liked it when I was on the young side. So yeah that stuff is iconic to me. Then there is Journey who I first heard with the album “Evolution” and was hooked immediately. They became one of my very favorite bands and I was super stoked to even see them live during the blockbuster “Escape” and “Frontiers” tours. The idea of Journey acting as the support act and finding Santana once again working with the members of his historic and most groundbreaking period is making my hands shake with excitement. I am going to do my best to be a part of that Madison Square Garden show and you should too if you know what’s good for you. Please let me know what you think of the whole matter in the comments section below.
