CBC Radio One host Chris Walker was forced to apologize earlier today after erroneously tweeting that rocker Carlos Santana had died:

And according to Mashable editor Brian Ries, Santana’s daughter wasn’t very happy with Walker’s sloppy reporting:

According to Walker, it was a different Carlos Santana:

So rather than say do a quick Google search to see if Santana died, he just tweeted it out there?
