Sly and the Family Stone Ranked At #15 In Top 50 Events In Rock Music

The U.K.’s Observer newspaper has ranked Sly and the Family Stone’s album “Stand!” at number 15 in its series of 50 key events in the history of rock music. The newspaper wrote, “Sly Stone took the live excitement of the Stax Soul Revue, grafted on James Brown’s completely functional, rhythm-as-a pure-state funk, and mixed in the heightened airs of psychedelia. … No one else could have made it quite as tight and loose, as blessed and blithe spirited.”
