Please don't tell me he is fat, bald and Republican.

6. Yep. Made me think of him.
There was this guy in high school who had a Camaro and would take a big bunch of us home every day and he had Sly 8-tracks and I always remember being in a big pile of kids and listening to that on the way home from school.

7. He had major drug problems that pretty much ended his career quite a
while ago. I heard he cleaned up his act a few years ago and was going to start recording again, but then fell back into drugs. Poor guy, he was really a groundbreaker in music. Love his old stuff.

10. The Family Stone was supposed to record again.
Sly wasn't going to though.
I found this out there on the Internets.

In 1993, Sly Stone was inducted to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, however, at the induction ceremony, he was found living in a sheltered-housing complex.

Sad. From what I hear, Sly is pretty far gone and in bad shape mentally. But thats just rumors.
