My friend sent me this youtube clip that just brought me to my knees with tears of hope and love. Carlos Santana, was reunited with his former conga player, Marcus”The Magnificent” Malone, who was living on the streets. Bay Area, KRON-TV, reporter, Stanley Roberts, was the man who made all this happen. Thank God for goodness.
And now, says Santana:
“I want to offer my brother Marcus Malone an opportunity to record on the next album with the original band, with Greg Rolie. We wrote a song for him called Magnificent Marcus Malone. We want him to play on it and we’re going to start, Lord willing, in January or February. So I would like to get him some congas so he can get his hands hard again because he hasn’t been playing the congas in a while.”
Tears flow as I post this, Santana, Live at the Filmore, featuring Marcus “The Magnificent” Malone:
