Sly Stone Reportedly Living Out of Van; Substance Abuse and Financial Mismanagement Take Toll on Funk Legend (VIDEO)

Sly Stone is trending after a piece in the New York Post reported that the reclusive soul-music icon is homeless and living out of a conversion van in Los Angeles due to a “lethal combination of excess, substance abuse, and financial mismanagement.”

During the ’60s and ’70s, the songwriter lead Sly and the Family Stone to prominence with a memorable performance at Woodstock and hit records like Dance to the Music and Stand!

Stone, 68, is still recording music with the help of a laptop computer, and while he says he’s distrustful of the industry, he has hopes of finding his way back onstage by collaborating with current stars like Lady Gaga.
