Here is one of many photos with Carlos Santana, Orianthi(blonde guitarist) Paul Allen(Seattle Seahawks owner in suit with guitar), Johnny lang(blue shirt),Carlos Santana, Me(in white cape and white shirt), Paoli Mejias, Cindy Blackman-Santana-drums, Farko Dusomev on bass..Carlos was happy and danced and played. I had a great time, and i only had to wait 41 years to get this opportunity to play with Santana...whose name is now on top of my resume...

THANK U KC!..It was a thrill at my age 64(not that that's old- :? ) to play with Santana and the new young stars Orianthi on guitar and Johnny Lang-guitar/vocals..they have plenty of youtube videos...chek them out..they can draw some crowds...
Whose Next????.....hahahaha....I didn't know this gig was coming until like 2 weeks before i got the call from Michael( who I have worked and recorded with before and is a friend)...so ...whose next???..
