You can’t have a music festival and not include one of the festival gods. Which I guess was the [awesome] idea behind adding Sly Stone to the hipster line-up at this year’s Coachella. In the 60’s and 70’s, Sly and the Family Stone broke social barriers with their multiracial funk/soul/psychedelia band. Today they’re probably best known for their song “Everyday People”… from every commercial ever.
But before the Sly Stone catalog was pimped out to commercial America, there was a fire for the soul and a huge step for the funk movement. Watch Sly bring it down at Woodstock and try not to catch the music fest spirit.
