Havana Moon is a song originally created by Chuck Berry with many different renditions by various artists throughout the years. We think though that Santana kills it and takes the cake as far as best version! Here in this rare clip, you can see Santana in Europe rocking out because he’s an international rock star. Duh. But really, it’s stellar. It will send chills down your spine – it’s beautiful like that.
“Bob Dylan used to say, ‘Don’t criticize what you don’t understand.’ Some musicians criticize because they’re afraid that other people are doing something good. I tell my musicians this: ‘When you say you hate something, I hope you can play the sh*t out of it, because if you can’t play it, you shouldn’t hate it.’ Every style of music is a language that needs to be articulated, respected, and honored.” – Santana
It’s a great performance from an amazing musician. That soul though!
