Carlos Santana, left, and Marcus Malone when they reunited in Oakland. Malone was part of Santana's band in the late '60s, then spent the past four decades or so living on the streets or in prison.
December 23, 2013 Marcus "Magnificent" Malone was a percussionist in Santana's band before it hit big in 1969. Since then, he's spent time in prison and time on the streets. By chance, he was part of a local TV news report. Then Santana and the news station tracked Malone down. Now he may play with the band again.
