Santana was always a favorite of mine.  I mean, this guy played Woodstock so when I had a chance to photograph him from the front row in my hometown I was pumped.  He was brilliant as always.  At one point he was really cranking in front of me and I was clicking away when I managed to get eye contact with Carlos.  I lowered my camera and motioned to him for a guitar pick.  He is still playing a song at this point.  He looked at me and nodded his head and walked off.  I thought, "Great. He just blew me off".alt  He continued ripping an amazing solo and when he was done, he walked over to my side of the stage, leaned over, and placed his guitar pick in my hand.  I still have that guitar pick to this day.
