A San Francisco reporter spoke with a homeless man in early December who was rummaging for valuables in Oakland.
The man, who identified himself as Marcus Malone, told Stanley that he was a landscaper and a music composer. He also said he once played percussion with the original Santana blues band.
The news team at KRON confirmed the claim and helped arrange a touching reunion between the superstar Carlos Santana and his one-time bandmate, who hadn’t been seen for 40 years.
Now Carlos is helping Malone to create a better life for himself.
