It's about time.
Sly Stone of the '70s funk bad, Sly & The Family Stone, has become so down and out that he was arrested earlier in the year for being in possession of cocaine, while homeless and living in his van, has finally entered a rehab facility for treatment.
A source close to the music legend reveals:
"[Sly] wants to get clean, and stay sober. Sly has fallen on very hard times in the past few years. Sly will be in rehab for at least the next 90 days, and he is committed to getting sober."
Unbelievable that someone who had so much could lose everything and fall apart - and all so quickly.
This is what drugs can do you, kiddies. Stay away.
We wish him the best of luck during this time, and peaceful, effective recovery.
