Last night, my quest to see all the living Rock Hall inductees continued. It was Santana's turn at the Greek Theatre. Carlos Santana is such a singular guitarist, possibly the most amazing, save Jimi Hendrix (He is Prince's main guitar influence). Only Santana could end the show on a vamp of 'Trane's "Love Supreme." His 10 piece band was brilliant and combined samba, rock and hip hop fluidly. The set highlights were "Evil Ways" and more modern hits "Maria, Maria" & "Smooth." Santana, after 40 years, is still a positive force for music and peace.

By the way, my count is up to 24 Rock Hall acts.

Love, Power, Peace
