Rock guitarist Carlos Santana recently reunited with his former band mate, Marcus 'The Magnificent' Malone, who was accidently found by a reporter living off the street of Oakland, USA.
According to KRON-TV, Stanley Roberts discovered the homeless man while filming a story about illegal dumping, Contactmusic reported.
Malone, who had lost contact with Santana after getting jailed in 1969, told Roberts that he was once a music composer and used to be a member of Santana's original blues band.
On their recent meeting, when Malone told Santana that he is afraid to let him see him in such a state, Santana replied saying that it is an honor to be in Malone's presence.
Santana also promised Malone that he will get him a new set of congas and help him get back on his feet, while hugging him.
