Only fitting that Rudy got the chance. I live in Europe and go to Santana concerts whenver he is over, the tone from his PRS going into the Mesa Boogie amp is just magic, and with the crazy percussion gang of Raul, Dennis etc - its always musical heaven. And knowing Rudy's immense talent, and being from Assam and North East, I am proud but not at all surprised that Rudy and Tips have been recognized by none less than Santana himself. Viva la musique!!
