Santana Van Halen sneak peek?

I’ve been passing along news about Santana’s classic rock covers album for months (check ‘em out here, here, and here), as we all await the record’s September release.

On “Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics Of All Time,” one of the Santana covers is Van Halen’s “Dance The Night Away,” sung by Train’s Pat Monahan.

While Santana has added the song to his setlist this summer, and we wait for video of that to surface, Train has been playing the song since March.

There’s no Carlos on guitar here, but it may give you an idea of what to expect from Monahan as far as vocals go….
