Jury Awards Sly Stone $5 Million Dollars in Unpaid Royalties — The GeoGee Experience Magazine — Medium


Sly-Stone After The Limelight

The ’70’s funk and soul icon Sly Stone, front man of Sly and the Family Stone, has called a van home for years after falling out of the entertainment limelight along with being cheated out of millions of dollars for his music.

Being a huge fan of Sly and the family I for one was disheartened to hear the legendary guitarist and all around musician had hit the skids so hard.

I have followed his fall from grace and the defection of women, friends, fans, and business partners. Lose the money lose the phoneys, lose the trophies.

Sly found this out when he dropped hard from a lofty mansion status to the gutters of poverty and damned near homelessness.

After years out of the limelight and living on the fringes of society, Sly Stone may have a blessing coming that is  long overdue. Read about it here. ->Jury Awards Sly Stone 5 Million Dollars in Unpaid Royalties — The GeoGee Experience Magazine — Medium

I'm a curious one that finds politics, social issues, and diverse progressive solutions interesting. I believe information and education are the most powerful weapons one can arm himself with. Those two dynamics alone open the doors to opportunities. I also subscribe to each one teach one for a better world for all.

  1. Hey G!
    I love this!
    This article was written with so much grace and sensitivity and I really admire you for that.
    Like you, I feel that it is important for all of us to honor Sly and all the others that came along with or before him. It does not matter if he ‘fell from grace,’ he is our brother and we should have his back.
    I mean, “Hot Fun in The Summertime?” Whaaa? How could you neglect anybody that gave us something so beautiful?
    “Family Affair?” Sly spit the cold hard truth but he did it with one of the smoothest melodies ever recorded on vinyl.
    I salute Sly and I wish him the best! I also salute you for sharing such a beautiful piece.
    A brother got his due!
