Paperback edition of the first in-depth biography of the legendary Sly Stone – now updated!

“An account as upbeat as those early hits's a great tale.” – Mojo

Author Jeff Kaliss scored the first face-to-face interview with the reclusive superstar in over 20 years, making this book a must-read for any rock'n'roll fan. From the anthemic early hits (“I Want to Take You Higher,” “Family Affair,” “Dance to the Music”) that powered Woodstock, through the moody meditations of “There's a Riot Going On” and beyond, Sly and the Family Stone have left an indelible stamp on rock, funk, pop, and hip-hop. The story follows the evolution of Sly and the Family Stone from local favorites to global rock stars whose success was undermined by drugs and self-delusion. In this updated version of the popular biography, Jeff Kaliss brings the story forward with new interviews and new revelations about a star in turmoil.
