RADIO // Black Rock Coalition RadioSly Stone: The Riot and The Fall of The Poet
LaRonda Davis and Darrell McNeill talk about the final comedown of tragic genius Sly Stone and his mea culpa, There's A Riot Goin' On, with author/editor Miles Marshall Lewis. As part of Continuum Books' 33 1/3 series, Lewis chronicles the rise and fall of Sylvester Stewart and his stalwart band, The Family Stone---which also served as a metaphor for the close of 60s optimism and the ushering of the political strife and bleakness of the 70s--all encapsulated in the landmark LP, Riot. Of course, the BRC plays choice cuts from the album (58 minutes).
