Carlos Santana is at war with Bush by music

March 24 2006

Mexican guitarist Carlos Santana (Carlos Santana) condemns the policies of President Bush. According to the legendary musician, the situation today in the U.S. reminds him of the mass rallies 70 against the Vietnam War.

"Americans take to the streets and express their protest against military action in Iraq - said the musician. - Many people do not approve of and openly protest against the tactics of George Bush. More young people are beginning to understand the philosophy of generation "flower children", which belonged to their parents. "

"I gained wisdom - says Santana. - I feel love. I live in the present and I want to make this world a more harmonious and tolerant. My concept is the opposite of President Bush's motivation. "

"Judging by today's mood, it becomes obvious that most people want to live in peace, not war - continues the guitarist. - And I, as a musician, fully support the dictum by Jimi Hendrix that "music is much preferable to bullets."

This anti-war statement by Carlos Santana said at a news conference before his speech in Lima, Peru's capital. As is known, in 1971, the band was denied entry into the country for "subversive" attitudes. Santana was able to travel to Peru until 1995, after ridding the country from military dictatorship.

Recall that the guitarist has recently released his 38th album, All That I Am. Now Santana is working on the release of DVD Santana Live By Request, which will also include a recording of his recent performances in a live TV show Live By Request on the channel A & E, where the musician played songs commissioned by the viewers.
