Hate every minute of it

''Everyday People'', and ''Don't Call Me Nigger Whitey'' are funk classics.They were a great 70s band.

Sad fall for Sly Stone. He was one of music's true geniuses and it is sad that he is isolating himself, but neverless his music will live on forever. Long live Sly & the Family Stone!
