Slyvester Stewart, known to the world as Sly Stone, was a Dj in San Francisco and got the idea to put a group together. Boy did he ever. Sly & The Family Stone are easily the best known group from the late 60’s. Sly’s concerts were filling stadiums, if only Sly had shown up to play. Once the band had several hits, Sly became known for not showing up at concerts and interviews.
His growing use of drugs finaly broke up the group.
