Our ‘Tickets @ 2’ song of the day is “Evil Ways” by Santana.

The song was originally recorded by Willie Bobo in 1965 and written by Bobo’s guitarist Sonny Henry. Bobo was a Latin Jazz percussionist who was a big influence on Santana and played on some of their tracks in the late ’70s.

Gregg Rolie, who joined Journey in 1973, sang lead. Carlos Santana who the band is named after, rarely took lead vocals but got plenty of guitar solos. His solo on “Evil Ways” is about 90 seconds long.

This was the first hit for Santana, who released their first album ‘Santana’ shortly after their appearance at the Woodstock festival.

When we play it between two and three we’ll take lucky caller #13 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a pair of tickets to see Ringo Starr and his All Star band this Saturday at the Greek Theatre.
