”Rock & Roll is dying because people became OK with Nickelback being the biggest band in the world. So they became OK with the idea that the biggest Rock band in the world is always going to be s**t – therefore you should never try to be the biggest band in the world. F**k that!”
– Patrick Carney of The Black Keys in the last issue of Rolling Stone –
The 3rd and final song of the day in the 3 part Santana series is “Black Magic Woman”. I picked two of his more modern songs from MY youth, the past 2 days, but thought it was necessary to bring it back to the old days. He was very young here. This is the 60s or 70s. As you can see, he was always awesome and talented. I used to love ripping it up to this song on Guitar Hero, back in college. Makes me want to whip out my faux axe and shred to this and other songs all day. Alas I don’t have a video game console anymore (at this moment at least). So I won’t be playing Guitar Hero or Rock Band today, although I do have The Beatles Rock Band in my closet, that I bought in the hopes that I’d get a Wii soon. That was 2 1/2 years ago. I’m still waiting. Soon. Soon.
