The Story of Santana's Woodstock Trip

Great Feats of Acid

It was around eleven in the morning when Carlos Santana arrived at Woodstock and took a handful of mescaline. The band was not playing until 8pm, however their set had been moved up to two o’clock.

Carlos, peaking, took the stage several hours early and proceeded to battle his guitar, which had morphed into a giant snake.

“When we first got there, around eleven in the morning, they told us we weren't going on until eight," he told Rolling Stone in 1989. "So I said, 'Hey, I think I'll take some psychedelics, and by the time I'm coming down, it'll be time to go onstage and I'll feel fine.' But when I was peaking around two o'clock, somebody said, 'If you don't go right now, you're not gonna go on.'"

He bravely took the stage and played an amazing set, though if you watch the video, it's a little obvious he's on something.
