Author Jeff Kaliss scored the first face-to-face interview with the reclusive superstar in over 20 years, making this book a must-read for any rock 'n' roll fan. From his anthemic early hits ("I Want to Take You Higher," "Family Affair," "Dance to the Music"), through the moody meditations of "There's a Riot Going On" and beyond, Sly & the Family Stone have left an indelible stamp on rock, funk, pop, and hip hop.

Eh. It did at least get me to listen to a lot of the Family Stone, and it is definitely the music that defined the future. Funkadelic, Prince, hip-hop. Read full review
