It’s been a while since we last told you about Sly Stone acting batshit, but we’re gonna make up for lost time with this one. Last Friday, the 65-year-old Stone put his band, girlfriend and the promoters and audience at his show in Santa Rosa, CA through hell. As per usual, Sly took the stage for a brief period during his band’s performance and quickly jetted the scene when craziness ensued. City Sound Inertia runs down the whole story.
Let’s take one last look at what else is happened this week…
- David Byrne explains how he and Eno got back together
- It’s never too early for the 2009 Album Release Schedule
- Bedazzled! previews this weekend’s WFMU Record Fair
- Hal Kant, the Grateful Dead’s longtime lawyer passed away
- U2’s Bono will write six – ten pieces for the NY Times in ’09
- Little Feat sits down to talk about Join The Band with WNEW
- The Black Crowes cancel their show on the 30th in NYC
- Gary Rossington of Lynryd Skynyrd got nabbed for DWI
- Ticketmaster boldly enters the artist management game
Finally, our friends at Jamtopia have just started a brilliant new series about the ticket broker industry called Who’s Got My Extra?. The first installment discusses why casual concertgoers are a metaphorical sniper rifle, a one man team with a single shot at scoring the elusive cheap concert tickets vs. the massive teams scalpers employ. It’s almost a depressing read.
