Old friends reunite

Stanley Roberts, a news reporter, was researching a piece on illegal dumping in Oakland when he encountered an elderly, homeless gentleman picking through some trash. Roberts was asking the man some questions and at one point he said his name was Marcus Malone and that he used to be a drummer for the band Santana, back before they became famous. Roberts then went and did some research and found an old picture of the band and sure enough, there was Marcus.

So, Roberts arranged for a heart-warming reunion between Carlos Santana and his old band mate which you can see in the video below. Carlos has now set Marcus up with an apartment, new clothes and a new set of conga drums and plans to include him on a new album to be recorded early next year. True friends are friends forever, no matter what.

“His spirit is indomitable.”
