    If I was running the show, he'd be awarded millions just for being Sly Stone.

    Awesome. Hopefully he doesn't blow it all, and end up back on the street in a few years.

    Let's hope that a "ruling" translates into a "payday".

    Usually, they don't...

    This is great news. I also hope he's able to manage it well and have a comfortable and happy life. He's insanely talented and so important in the history of rock/pop/soul/R&B/rap...you name it.

    Yes, I was so happy to hear this.

    The drugs, his bad decisions, blah blah blah. We all know the history.


    C'mon everyone, turn this one up and let's celebrate Sly.

    I hear you singin'.

    Man, I'm so happy for him!

    I saw Sly at Woodstock and the audience was electrified. I'm not kidding. They killed us dead and then killed us some more.

    Sly and CCR that night was almost too much. I'm sure the electricity is still flowing up in outer space for some alien beings to intercept and enjoy. At a theater near them... :cool:

    Okay so I'm all about artists not getting screwed over for their royalties, but now that Sly has gotten this award, does that mean he's going to pay back all the concert goers that he screwed over by not showing up for dates or playing 3-4 songs and then walking off? I know he was 45 minutes to an hour late for a show back in Richmond when I was growing up and only played like a half hour. Darn near created a riot.

    That would be horrible. Let's hope he hangs on to it!

    I love Sly's music!
    It was some of the most incredible R&B, soul, funk ever written.

    For me,
    I'll take "Hot Fun In The Summertime"
    or "Family Affair" over anything from Prince.

    Sly's music was the soundtrack for a generation.

    A good friend of mine was working as a recording engineer in a studio on the east coast and Sly and entourage showed up for "a session".

    Apparently he was freebasing cocaine the whole time and being abusive to nearly everyone and in no shape to record anything much less rehearse.

    At some point he got fed up and walked out and so did everyone else and about five minutes after he left the state police showed up with a warrant for his arrest for something and nobody had any idea where he went.

    It's like he had a sixth sense he'd better get out of there.

    Produced some great records that's for sure. I hope he gets his act together and puts one last great project out although it's pretty late now.
