The enigmatic pioneer is participating in the feature-length project.
Sly Stone is one of rock 'n' roll’s towering figures, with a troubling personal story as compelling as his exhilarating music. His reclusive life and groundbreaking fusion of pop, funk and rock will be examined in a new documentary produced by Network Entertainment and filmmaker Derik Murray.
While there have been previous documentaries about Stone, this marks the first film about his life that Stone has participated in, having already sat for one interview with more to potentially come. Murray is also working with the various rights holders of Sly & The Family Stone’s masters to license them for the film.
“In the annals of pop music, certain artists are more than just innovators and more than just icons. Certain artists are avatars -- the manifestation of an idea,” said Murray. "For Sly Stone, that idea was to create a diverse band that embraced a kaleidoscope of musical and cultural styles that stand unparalleled to this day.”
