Happy 74th Birthday to Sly Stone, Singer-Keyboardist of Sly and the Family Stone!
Along with James Brown and Parliament-Funkadelic, Sly and the Family Stone were pioneers of late 1960s and early ’70s funk. Their fusion of R&B rhythms, infectious melodies, and psychedelia created a new pop/soul/rock hybrid the impact of which has proven lasting and widespread.
