Excerpt: The funk rock legend, Sly Stone, came from a musical family, and was considered a prodigy at a young age. At 23 he founded what would become his most profound and longstanding legacy, Sly & the Family Stone. The band pushed the boundaries of race and gender at the time, becoming the first racially integrated major rock group in the US with men and women playing together.
