Featured artist Sly & The Family Stone

Showin some LOVE and layin it down for
Sly & the Family Stone
Sly and the Family Stone are credited as one of the first racially integrated bands in music history, belting their message of peace, love and social consciousness through a string of hit anthems that fused R&B, soul, funk and rock n roll. On 'Different Strokes by Different Folks' a stylistically, culturally and racially disparate group of chart-toppers mirrors that idealistic diversity. Understand this: There was no precedent for Sly & the Family Stone.

Stand -Sly & The Family Stone
harleyblues take:
"Stand for something
or fall for anything" one of my personal favs

Stand- from the Mike Douglas show member him?

Back in 1967, when the interracial, mixed-gender combo burst onto the scene with their debut album, the burgeoning rock & roll subculture was, as always, hungry for fresh kicks and different sounds. But no one was quite prepared for the magical, multi-faceted musical mix Sly and company served up. Their music was an inspired blend of rock, soul, pop, jazz, and an emerging genre soon to be dubbed funk. It packed a powerful, joyous wallop, delivering all the things one hoped to find in music: The thrill of the new, the excitement of the unexpected, a galvanizing groove, and lyrics that actually said something.

Sly's been sampled by Janet Jackson, Beastie Boys, Kid Rock, Fatboy Slim, Ice Cube and Public Enemy to name just a few! He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in 1992, and is the recipient of the 2002 R&B Foundation Pioneer Award.

Thank you-1970

Man look at these fros & clothes -that was the style back in the day.

One of the best 70's Funk bands in my lil own opinion. Sly is currently living in seclusion as he has for the last 30 years in Hollywood. I believe he was recently interviewed in Vanity Fair. However he is doing some small gigs here & there most recently in San Jose, Music in the park? which he only appeared for 5 minutes but doesn't Sly always do this? hahahaha, I missed it as I was working. Turn it up! lets show some LOVE for Sly & The Family Stone "Get back" wit yo bad self!
