Happy Birthday Carlos Santana: Full Phil Lesh & Friends Lockn’ Set

Advertisement

Renowned guitarist Carlos Santana turns 69-years-old today. The frontman of legendary Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame band Santana, the Mexico-born, Bay Area-resident has been a fixture among the upper echelon of guitarists since he burst onto the scene with his rhythmic psychedelic style. Throughout his illustrious career Carlos has shared the stage with a seemingly countless array of the world’s top musicians and for his birthday today here’s a look back at his appearance at Lockn’ last year.

On the second day of the 2015 edition of Lockn’, Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh assembled an augmented version of his “Q” Phil & Friends lineup, subbing Barry Sless and Santana for Jimmy Herring to go along with guitarist Warren Haynes, drummer John Molo and keyboardist Rob Barraco. Making his debut as one of Phil’s Friends, Santana shined during many points of the set on songs from the classic Dead repertoire.

Carlos took little time taking the spotlight on the set opening “Scarlet Begonias” and made the most of the blues-heavy performance, adding his trademark smooth tone to favorites like “Hard To Handle,” “Good Morning Little Schoolgirl” and “Death Don’t Have No Mercy.” Carlos and Warren traded licks on “Fire On The Mountain” and Santana helped take the ensemble into psychedelic territory with the set closing “Dark Star.” Full audience-shot video paired with taper audio captured by evensteveco of the September 12, 2015 Phil & Friends set at Lockn’ can be viewed here:
