Santana was formed in 1967 in San Francisco with Malone playing as the band's percussionist, specializing in Latin instruments. Originally known as Carlos Santana Blues Band, the group found little success in the music scene until it was announced as among the performers at the upcoming Woodstock and began work on its debut album Santana. However, by this point, Malone had already been convicted of manslaughter and had started serving his sentence in San Quentin State Prison.

Since his release from prison in 1973, Malone had been living on the streets of Oakland until being accidentally discovered by KRON-TV field reporter Stanley Roberts in December 2013. Malone and Carlos Santana subsequently had an emotional reunion, and the former was set to once again play as a percussionist in Santana's upcoming album Santana IV. In the end, Malone didn't feature in Santana IV.
