Sly Stone 75 -- March 15, 2018
Happy 75th birthday to Sly Stone.  He was a disc jockey for San Francisco's KSOL.  He produced records for The Great Society and the Beau Brummels.  About 1967, he formed Sly and the Family Stone, a bend which was racially integrated and included men and women.  Sly and the Family Stone released A Whole New Thing in 1967. It was indeed. They recorded much successful music and put on some wild live shows, but he ran into trouble with drugs.  He is still with us and still making music.
