Thank you (falettinme be mice elf agin) : a memoir

Stone, Sly (author.). Greenman, Ben, (author.). Questlove, (writer of foreword.). Hirschkowitz, Arlene, (author.).

Summary: As the front man for the sixties pop-rock-funk band Sly and the Family Stone, a songwriter who created some of the most memorable anthems of the 1960s and 1970s ("Everyday People," "Family Affair"), and a performer who electrified audiences at Woodstock and elsewhere, Sly Stone's influence on modern music and culture is indisputable. But as much as people know the music, the man remains a mystery. After a rapid rise to superstardom, Sly spent decades in the grip of addiction. Now he is ready to relate the ups and downs and ins and outs of his amazing life in his memoir. Set on stages and in mansions, in the company of family and of other celebrities, it's a story about flawed humanity and flawless artistry.
