Today's Tickets @ 2 Song: "(In A) Big Country" by Big Country

Did You Know: “Evil Ways” By Santana

On ‘Tickets @ 2’ listen for Santana’s “Evil Ways.” Originally recorded by Willie Bobo in 1965, and the song was 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 on “Evil Ways.” Carlos Santana, who the band was named after, rarely took lead vocals but got plenty of guitar solos. His solo in the song is about 90 seconds long.

This was Santana’s first hit, released shortly after their appearance at Woodstock.

We’ll take caller #7 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) between two and three when it plays to win a pair of tickets to see the Fab Four in November at The Grove of Anaheim.
