Sly Is Homeless, The Family Stone Books a Miami Cruise
But we'd like to point out (as he probably would too) that Sly lives in a van, a pretty big one, and that having a mobile home is way better than not having one at all. Also, we believe his side of the story about having been cheated out of millions in royalties.
Meanwhile, The Family Stone is doing awesome.
Sly's old band just recently got back from a European tour. And yesterday, a couple of the members backed up Steven Tyler at the I Heart Radio Music Festival in Vegas.

But the biggest news is the Family Stone will be jumping on a Carnival Cruise ship next month, sailing out of Miami, boarding in Belize, and rocking shows on the
high seas for some wild and crazy party animals headed for the Bahamas.
We spoke to The Family Stone's manager Joel Brandes and he confirmed the gigs. When asked if they'll be performing with Sly in Miami anytime soon, he said, "Never say never."
