Sly and the Family Stone

| 1 Comment

So Sly Stone made a fool of himself again at Coachella over the weekend. It's really too bad as Sly obviously isn't in any shape to perform anymore. The above video is from a time when Sly and his family Stone were the coolest thing in music, enjoy.

Also, if you want to read up on what Sly and the Family Stone meant to late's 60's popular music, check out Griel Marcus' book Mystery Train.

Sly and family re-invigorated Soul, bringing the genre to the top of the charts. And, whoa, how could you not dance to it?

It's so sad when the great artists of any genre and time 'fade away in plain sight.'
