OTB Latenight – Santana

Carlos Santana with Rob Thomas:

Doubtless the idea of bringing guys like Rob Thomas in for Supernatural was to help the old master get the attention of the younger set. But I’m sure I’m not alone in saying that it had the opposite effect for me: It got me to pay some attention to Rob Thomas.

    Yeah, me too. First thing I thought when I saw the video and heard the song was Geez, why can’t Matchbox 20 do more things like this? Thomas wrote Smooth for his wife. Check out the Wiki page for it.

    Garth Brooks’ debut single contained a reference to “a worn out tape of Chris Ledoux.” The latter was a legend in the rodeo-Western niche but otherwise an unknown. Both gave each other credit for bringing them credibility and exposure to a wider audience.

    The girl in the video is Rob’s model wife, Marisol Maldonado.

    Yeah, this song made me pay more attention to Rob Thomas.

    That’s one hot song.
