Toledo Zoo / July 11
It’s one of the most infamous stories in guitar god history: At Woodstock in 1969, Carlos Santana dropped mescaline early in the day, thinking he had some time to cool off, only to be called onstage right at the peak of a trip. Fortunately, the dude was zoned in — to say the least (check it out on YouTube). More than 40 years later, we might not have as wild of a Santanta, but we have a refined artist who has spent almost half a century pushing the old-school into a progressive, hip, multicultural style that’s rarely accomplished.
