    Gregg was a cornerstone of the first Santana band. I can assure you seeing them in 1969 was a booty shaking soul stirring sexy ass experience. They were fire. Never forgave Journey for breaking up a good Santana band and that band went downhill from there... Ugh.

      Check out the interview. According to Gregg, Carlos wanted Santana to be a Jazz band after Santana 3 and Gregg wasn't into it. Left Santana and went into the restaurant biz with his Dad till he got the call from Schon.

      I saw Journey right after Infinity came out and Perry joined. Great band, with Rollie, Perry, Schon, Valory and Dunbar.

        Gregg and Neal were back with Santana 3 years ago on Santana IV along with Michael Shrieve and Michael Carabello. They did the one album and a tour and they sounded great together again but it the reunion was short lived. Bummed I did not get to see them. They did release Santana IV: Live At The House of Blues which was very good and had a few songs from the album and classics from the first 3 Santana albums and none of the later more commercial material. I've been a Santana fan since their first album but was never a fan of Journey whatsoever. Too poppy and not into that singer at all.

            I was just going to link Kohoutek off the first album, and will anyway. As a 17-year-old an hour and change from The City, we heard a lot of Santana, but the first Journey album was mana for a kid who loved Mahavishnu & Beck with Jan Hammer. Dated? Sure. But one thing I hope that Gregg escaped by leaving the later incarnations of the band is the compulsion to wed some of the Nat’l Enquirer’est bat-shit crazy characters in modern history. Neal married the Obama party-crasher Michaele Salahi (she’s been kidnapped! Whoops, no she’s run off with the guitar picker!), and Jonathan married “spiritual adviser” Paula Stone. Don’t do that, or cosmetic surgery, so that’s two things.

              Don’t know about The Paula Stone issue but I am certainly hoping that you are not suggesting thst marignygregg should regret having had all of that cosmetic surgery?

                Not bad. Pre-schlock days. Haha. They could definitely play.

                  Nice piece on next years first Saturday headliners.

                  They bicker. They stay in separate hotels and record without ever being in the same room. But Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend can still conjure old magic

                    Very well written piece. Now I want to see them at Fest.
