Watch: Carlos Santana reunite with homeless former bandmate




In the late sixties Marcus Malone played percussion in the original incarnation of the Santana Blue Band, leaving just before the band's appearance at Woodstock that then led to their huge fame. The years were not so kind to Malone though. After a spell in jail he ended up homeless.

Malone was featured by a local Bay Area news station in a piece they did on the homeless. One of the viewers who caught the story was Carlos Santana, who has been trying to track Marcus down for years. Santana contacted the station who then helped him find his old friend and were on hand to film the reunion. In a follow up interview with CNN Carlos said he is helping set Malone up in an apartment and then wants him to join some of the other original band members on his new album.
