Santana at Google


I've taken this picture when Santana came to Google in May 2009. I took a lot of pictures, but this one was by far the best. To take it I laid on the floor, and framed the picture to contain both Santana and the Google logo. Then it was just a matter of timing, I waited until Santana turned to face me.

Update (June 9, 2009): The picture above was selected as featured photo on Picasaweb.

Roger Waters - The Dark Side of the Moon


Roger Waters of Pink Floyd was in concert last night at Shoreline Amphitheater, with The Dark Side of the Moon. Great music and a great show!

There were quite a few very politically charged songs. At some point an inflatable pig was brought on the scene and walked around the amphitheater. You could read Impeach Bush Now on its bottom. Tony Blair was not forgotten either. I wouldn't have expected anything less from Roger Waters!

David Gilmour, Richard Wright of Pink Floyd in concert

David Gilmour, Richard Wright of Pink Floyd in concert at Oakland Paramount Theater, CA - April 17, 2006

This Monday (April 17th), David Gilmour and Richard Wright of Pink Floyd were in concert at Paramount Theater, Oakland CA. The first part of the concert started with Breathe and Time from Dark Side of the Moon, and continued with songs from David Gilmour's new album On An Island, which are quite melancolic. In the second part however, they played some old Pink Floyd songs, including Arnold Layne, Echoes, Comfortably Numb and many others. Dick Parry who played saxophone in many of Pink Floyd's albums joined the band for few songs. I was blown away, really good music and energy.

Check out the gallery for more pictures.

Rolling Stones - A Bigger Bang concert


Wow, last night's Rolling Stones concert at SBC Park in San Francisco was awesome! Really spectacular!

Metallica performed in the opening of the show, then there was a half an hour break. When the lights turned off, a fireworks show started, with lots of loud bangs and cracks, and flames going up in the sky. Then an energetic Mick Jagger appeared and sang "Start Me Up", energizing the audience.

The first half of the show most of the songs they played were from their new album. In the second half they played their classic songs. At some point a moving platform moved the band in the middle of the stadium, while in the back of the scene a huge lip & tongue appeared.

Gosh, despite the age of these guys they managed to keep everybody on the stadium floor standing and dancing! And they performed for more two hours with a lot of energy. At more than 60 years old, Mick Jagger was running around like a teenager, really crazy. I wish I'll be in the same shape at that age ;)
