What made Ronnie so endearing was how humanly kind he was to his fans and you get that mood from his interviews on the extra features of this DVD, when he’s talking about how he never balked in his music style and why through the years he never changed sound too much, to please the fans, because he new this may enrage some of the loyal fan base
Montreal is pretty much what everyone says it is…long, meandering, mostly uninteresting, with lyrics consisting of diary entries.Invisible Ink is a powerhouse of a song, and perhaps the highlight of the album. If the album could have closed out stronger, it could have eked out a 9, but unfortunately, like the worst H era songs (Accidental Man, Hooks in You, Built-In Bastard Radar come to mind), Lucky Man is a whole lot of nothing.
This is a wonderful concert experience and Carlos Santana integrates his multiple blend of rock/fusion into the crowd with wonderful rhythm and class, wearing all white with his trademark top hat and his Gibson custom guitars all provide a beautification of his music through the years.

A culmination of many years in the making and 2 contrasting show in its core, from the remnants beginning of the end of the club scene for the guys from Long Island, to a reunion which sparked a comeback for long time fans of the band, here in this double live shot of Twister maniacs you will find plenty to synch your ears to
I admire the way Hogarth explains the meanings behind some of the songs and why they we’re written, it adds a nice prelude to when the band’s actually starts playing them in this constitute. It takes a mature band and experience one at that to ease their way through some of their long list of catalog material and add new meaning to each song when presented in this abstract format.
“Jeff Healey formed his band in 1985, with drummer Tom Stephen and bassist Joe Rockman. Known for playing the guitar flat on his lap, Healey perfected a unique, vibrato-infused resonance that solidified the band’s signature sound.”…
