Wow. Talk about a Christmas miracle!
Carlos Santana was recently reunited with a former band member after losing touch with him for YEARS!
A local news station in San Francisco came across Marcus “The Magnificent” Malone while doing a story about illegal trash dumping in Oakland. Marcus was found sorting through the garbage and was interviewed for the piece.
That’s when he told reporter Stanley Roberts that he used to be a Blues drummer for Carlos!
The reporter went back to work to try and verify that claim. Sure enough, he was telling the truth!
Marcus had been a drummer in the band before they hit it big following their appearance at Woodstock! Marcus had gotten into unspecified trouble with the law and served jail time. He’s been homeless and living on the streets ever since he was released decades ago! And he never heard from Carlos Santana again.
Until this news story made air!
Carlos reached out to the station and made arrangements for a reunion between him and Marcus.
The video is, in a word, AH-Mazing!
Press PLAY above and prepare to have your heart just flood with happiness!
We wish the best to Marcus and hope that this is the first step in getting him finally back on his feet again!
