THE MAN. THE MUSIC. THE BAND. THE HITS. THE RIOTS. THE CONTROVERSY. THE STRUGGLE. THE DOWNFALL. THE LOST YEARS. THE LEGEND. THE STORY OF THE MAN BEHIND THE HITS: "Dance to the Music" "Stand" "I Want to Take You Higher" "Everyday People" "Sing a Simple Song" "You Can Make It If You Try" "Hot Fun in the Summertime" "Everybody is a Star" "Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)" "Family Affair" "If You Want Me to Stay"

From the Back Cover:

Stevie Wonder. Miles Davis. Herbie Hancock. Parliament-Funkadelic. Prince. Michael Jackson. Janet Jackson. Alicia Keys. Each of these artists has left an indelible mark on popular music and each owes a debt to the music and genius of SLY STONE. Eddie Santiago offers a detailed account of the twin stories of SYLVESTER STEWART - the studious, articulate, and industrious producer and songwriter - and SLY STONE - the innovative, captivating, and controversial disc jockey, bandleader, and performer - as they struggle for the soul of one man. From his formative days on the radio in San Francisco to the 1968 breakthrough "Dance to the Music"; from the social protest of "Stand" to the pinnacle of Woodstock; from his descent into drug addiction to his re-emergence in 2006, Sly: the Lives of Sylvester Stewart and Sly Stone provides readers with context and depth about the life of an enigmatic artist whose musical and social legacy has impacted every decade from the 1960s to the present.
