It’s a sad tale, but one with hope. Sly Stone, famous for his work as Sly & The Family Stone, has been ailed by drug use and self-abuse for too long. The singer recently received much publicity over the news that he had been living in his van. While rumors of his homelessness were rampant, Sly told reporters that he preferred living in the van and that his manager was keeping his home safe for him. The eccentric now has finally set his pace into the right direction, and is trying out rehab so he can revamp his music career.
A close source shared that “[Sly] wants to get clean, and stay sober. Sly has fallen on very hard times in the past few years. Sly will be in rehab for at least the next 90 days, and he is committed to getting sober.”
Last week Funk Music News caught up with Susan Tedeschi, on tour as Tedeschi Trucks Band with her husband Derek Trucks. The band covers Sly & The Family Stone’s “Sing A Simple Song” and we asked Susan what she thought of Sly’s attempt at a comeback.
