Yesterday's post on Sly Stone led me to a couple interviews on Youtube. The first is an appearance on The Dick Cavett Show from July 1970 (around the time I was celebrating my first birthday). Stone is flying high in the friendly skies, and Cavett does his best to keep the plane from crashing. Note at one point that Cavett mentions that Stone had apparently missed previous bookings on the show. Given how messed up Sly is here, it makes you wonder what kind of condition he must have been in for the shows he missed.
The second interview is much later, filmed as Sly was working on his 1979 comeback album Back On The Right Track. Growing up I remember seeing this kind of "whatever happened to Sly Stone" feature every few years.
