Dec 20 Fri: Pearmain Street, Oakland, CA
Note: After more than 40 years, Carlos Santana reunites with Marcus Malone, percussionist of Santana #1. The encounter is made possible thanks to the efforts of local news reporter Stanley Roberts, who comes across Malone on Dec 9, while reporting on illegal dumpsites for his segment “People Behaving Badly” for the station KRON4. When Roberts first interviews Malone, he reveals to him that he used to play with Carlos Santana’s original band. The drummer once nicknamed Marcus “the Magnificent” and Carlos Santana parted ways some 40 years ago when Malone was sent to San Quentin prison. Upon his release, Malone is unable to find a steady job and eventually becomes homeless. After Roberts’ segment airs on TV Dec 9, Carlos Santana travels to Oakland looking for his former percussionist. Being unable to locate Malone, Santana contacts Roberts, and asks to set up a reunion. On Friday Dec 20, Roberts returns with Carlos Santana on Pearmain Street, Oakland, CA, where he first encountered Malone. A video of the surprise encounter is shown on local TV KRON4. Marcus Malone exclaims: “You don’t know how hard I prayed to get to see you”. Carlos Santana responds: “It is an honor to be in your presence. I always cherish you, man”. On Dec 22, Carlos Santana says on CNN that he will help his friend to get an apartment, and that Malone will be part of “Santana 4”, a recording project that will reunite original Santana Band members.
