Music legend Sly Stone homeless in Los Angeles

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: Sly and the Family Stone former lead singer Sly Stone (nee Sylvester Stewart) is now homeless in Los Angeles, according to a recent interview with the New York Post. The 68-year old musician once owned a 5,432 square foot home in Beverly Hills, as well as a Napa Valley estate (complete with vineyard) which he inhabited as recently as four years ago.

Despite his current living arrangements, which involve sleeping in a van in the Crenshaw area of the city, Stone continues to make music, and is supported by a staff of one (the son of a family who supplies him with a daily meal and a shower). The band’s official breakup in 1975 marked the beginning of an immediate decline for Stone, yet his drug habit and a number of other eccentricities were sustained for nearly 35 years through royalties from the band’s fame. Things turned around for Stone in 2009, when royalties abruptly stopped, prompting Stone to sue his manager, Jerry Goldstein, for fraud.

The band is best-known for its number one single “Everyday People” (1968).
