It seems like Morgan Freeman or Paul McCartney tragically die at least once a year. Now there's a new star for whom rumors of his death have been greatly exaggerated.

On Wednesday last week, a Canadian journalist took to Twitter to announce that legendary musician Carlos Santana's body was found in a car. He's 68 years old. And, thankfully, still alive.

Santana's representative told USA Today the social media death announcements were "completely false." And his team tweeted this out in response to the rumors:

"From Team Santana: Carlos is alive and well and enjoying his morning! Thank you all for your concern, but the reports of his passing are false."

It's yet another reminder not to believe everything you read on the Internet, and especially social media. And Santana fans, you can catch him live at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas on November 4.
