Thanks gene...Heartwarming. Carlos later took him to his studio and jammed with him. Even gave him some Congas and told him in a few weeks they would go to Las Vegas and do some recordings....

Not a surprise - just read the autobiography "The Universal Tone" and can definitely see him doing this.

My guitar instructor and praise team bass player did 30 shows with Santana back in the 80s. He said that Carlos was a very spiritual guy. The "rock star life" was too much for my guitar instructor though. I never knew about the sexual abuse though. Ace
