Thousands of young people, many of them high on 41 42 CARLOS SANTANA LSD or marijuana, crammed into the Fillmore every weekend to listen and dance to the hard-driving beat of the San Francisco Sound. Among the most devoted patrons of the wildly popular concert venue were two music-loving teenagers from the Mission District, Stan Marcum and Carlos Santana. Bill Graham and the Fillmore Auditorium Carlos’ loyalty to the Fillmore was not only rooted in his enthusiasm for the new acid rock sound. What really drew him to the concert venue was the astonishing variety of musical HALLUCINOGENS IN THE 1960S During the early 1960s, drug use, which had previously been almost entirely confined to residents of impoverished urban neighborhoods and members of the artistic community, began to gain acceptance among a larger segment of the American population and especially among the nation’s youth.

Graham brusquely told Marcum that Bloomfield was in charge of the jam session and to ask him. To Santana’s delight Bloomfield agreed to Stan’s proposal and even lent Carlos his guitar. “So I got the guitar,” Santana remembered, “and stood there, waiting and waiting . . ”51 Bill Graham was immediately captivated by the young guitarist’s energy and passion and the distinctive, almost pleading tone he could create by holding a single note for an astonishingly long time, a musical technique Carlos had first acquired as a mariachi violinist in Mexico.

Yet paying his way into the theater proved an ongoing challenge for the cash-strapped teen. Soon after moving to San Francisco, Santana took an after-school job as a dishwasher at the Tick-Tock, a local diner. Loyal son that he was, Carlos turned over the bulk of his earnings to his parents. Most weeks, he spent what little remained from his paycheck at the Fillmore box office.
