Thread: Will sly stone show up and play?

    Default Will sly stone show up and play?

    you never know. GV must know his reputation, we'll see if their money and the prestige of a coachella show can have him show up. Gil Scott-Heron kicked the drugs and is making records again, anything can happen.

    i think Aphex Twin generally will make good on a show booking though, whereas sly & the family stone actually booked a tour a couple years ago only to cancel the whole thing, and he hasn't really done a proper concert in decades. will be interesting to see

    I voted for the middle option out of optimism... my gut tells me that IF he shows up, his voice will be shot but the band will rock.

    Not if he sees all the complaints about not bringing The Family.

    Okay. So I was stoked to see them on the poster, too. And I tried to block out his awkward Grammy performance from a couple years back. But now I found this and I'm worried again. Please let him show up and actually perform with the band for a whole set!

    This is a pretty hilarious article, BTW. Kinda takes the sting out of the negative possibilities lurking.

    Does showing up for 3 songs sans Family count under "Yes, but he will be bad?"

    I'd possibly give some vital organ to see a full show as it was originally billed, but the history here doesn't lie. I just hope I don't miss something good while I'm standing around pissed waiting for him to show or not. If he's there consistently for the hour, I'd skip Sir Paul rimjobbing the plastic, recycled remains of Michael Jackson for this.

    That's good to hear. I'm still angry about the crack party I was promised with Winehouse.

    Looks like Sly will show up while the Family Stone dropped out.
