The guitar legend Carlos Santana just released his new album, Carlos Santana – Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time.
The title pretty much speaks for itself – mr. Santana is covering a lot of songs famous for their melodies and riffs. Guest singers, ranging from Chris Cornell to India Arie are also present. Now, why does this matter? Because the last track on the CD/DVD deluxe version of the album is a cover of Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Under The Bridge, with Andy Vargas on vocals and Carlos Santana doing John.
You can buy this pretty much flattering tribute from an older legend to a younger legend as a single mp3.
Previously, Under The Bridge was covered infamously by British girl group All Saints, as well as artists such as Taylor Daine, Weird Al Yankovic; interpolations were used by Girl Talk and DJ Moondance and recently it was discussing this on the board, too.
