Santana's Flesh-Filled Beginnings
Guitar legend CARLOS SANTANA's music career kicked off in an unusual venue when he was 11 years old - in Mexican strip clubs.
The MARIA MARIA hitmaker developed a talent for music at a very young age in his native Mexico, and went on to play at a variety of flesh-filled venues in the border town of Tijuana for cash.
And Santana is amazed at the amount of people who see his first employment venue as bizarre for a young boy.
He says, "I thought it was cool. Odd is like cross-pollinating cows with chickens, or something.
"This is just very normal... because Tijuana is like Las Vegas, only very cooler."27/09/2004 14:19
