We’re all waiting patiently to get the green light. We don’t even have the yellow light yet. It’s still red. But it’s encouraging to see that auditoriums and coliseums are starting to open up in certain places. More restaurants are opening up, it seems like slowly but surely – because of the vaccine.”
We already know Kirk Hammett features on Trinity, a cover of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s song Tere Bina that played on Santana’s All That I Am album. Hammett also played on “Give The Drummer Some” which is the 2020 album by Santana’s wife, former Lenny Kravitz drummer Cindy Blackman Santana.
