Sly Stone: Shy Boy Who Had Power
Martin Hayman, Sounds, 28 July 1973
TAKE A look at that feller in the picture (sorry — RBP ED). Pretty smart, eh? A nice-looking geezer, beautiful soft rubbery face with a sleepy, foxy smile that creeps up so nice and easy over that wide, mobile Mick Jagger mouth. Slouches under his big red hat like a Mexican in the noonday sun, unconcerned that life goes on around him. While he sleeps, the world may sleep too.
