Trivia / Sly and the Family Stone

  • Creator Breakdown: Sly provides a rather infamous example. His drug habits led to the Darker and Edgier There's A Riot Goin' On, him missing shows and ultimately his personal and professional decline into poverty and homelessness.
  • Fountain of Expies: They've been covered or sampled many times over the years, and were a major influence on George Clinton, Prince, everyone they influenced, etc.
