I have seen Santana live many times, the best of which was 12-31-99 at the Hard Rock in Las Vegas. Nothing like bringing in the new millenium dancing ro Santana!

He experienced a sudden resurgence of popularity and critical acclaim in the late 1990s. Rolling Stone also named Santana number 15 on their list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time in 2003
