This is such a great story! And the good news! Santana now plans to record with the magnificent Marcus Malone! Man, we love happy endings like this.

From the article:

While filming a segment for People Behaving Badly about illegal dumping in an Oakland neighborhood on Dec. 9, KRON 4’s Stanley Roberts spoke with a homeless man found rummaging for valuables.The man, who identified himself as Marcus Malone, told Stanley that he was a landscaper and a music composer. He also revealed his connection to a Bay Area music legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Carlos Santana.

“At one time I was with the Santana band, the original Santana blues band,” Marcus said. “Now I’m homeless and on the streets.”

Initially, Marcus’ claim seemed unbelievable. Carlos is famously known for his generosity and compassion for people in need. Carlos supports several organizations such as The Milagro Foundation, Amnesty International, Greenpeace, United Farm Workers, Save The Children, and Build The Dream.

But KRON 4 made some calls and looked up Marcus’ story. What came next was a shock.

The Santana Blues Band got its start in his mother’s garage.

It was total fate they say Carlos was watching TV and then tried to find Marcus. He traveled to the area several times to try and find him and was unsuccessful, but thankfully KRON helped out (after getting a phone call from the legend) and found Marcus in minutes flat! Now they’re due to record together. We love this!

    Too bad it was just a publicity stunt. Carlos has no intention to do anything with his old friend/band member. Dig the story deeper and you will find out that nothing has happen. Those vids are from 2014… SMH. He still got 10G and a pair of percussion drums. Carlos Santana….what a troll
