Sly Stone

He lives out of a car.  A neighbor gives him a meal and a shower.  This is how it ends for a groundbreaking genius?  It can when you squander all your talents.  Drugs chewed up his royalties.  Fast living chewed 'em up too.
But Sly says he's got 100's of songs stored away.  But won't let anyone hear them because the biz is corrupt.  He's an addict who says he'll quit but never does.  Are these songs any good?  Who knows.
You want to feel sorry for the guy, but you can't.  He threw it all away.  And when people were there to help, he threw them away too.
But the old songs, we'll always have the old songs.
