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

On a cold rainy day last fall, dozens of people gathered in a plaza across the street from New Jersey’s state Capitol.

They held press conferences and slept overnight in lawn chairs.

Everyone had come to make the same point: They’d made it through Superstorm Sandy, which hit the shores of New Jersey and New York in October 2012.

But three years later, many hadn’t made it home.Doug Quinn, a 51-year-old from Toms River, N.J., had been in the plaza for two days.

“I should be at home in my house and part of my community and instead, I’m here doing this,” said Quinn.

“I thought it’ll be all right; my insurance will take care of what needs to be taken care of and I’ll be back home in three to four months. It’s [been] three years and I’m still not anywhere close. I look back now and think how naive I was.”
