'Don't Call Me Nigger, Whitey'
Andrew Darlington

 

The first ever biography of a popular music legend.

Inter-racial. Inter-gender. Into drugs. What is it... this thing called Sly & The Family Stone? It's about time. It's about space. It's about the ups and downs of Funk, Psychedelic Soul and R&B. But more than anything else, it's about music and it's about people who are obsessed by music.
In this first-ever full-length biography of Sylvester 'Sly Stone' Stewart, music-writer Andrew Darlington ('I Was Elvis Presley's Bastard Love-Child') exhaustively details the story, while adding intriguing new slants. Relating the hits-"Dance To The Music", "Stand", "Family Affair" and the seismic album There's A Riot Goin' On, to the Civil Rights protests, the Black Power radicals and the insurrectionary counter-culture politics of their turbulent time. This is the true story of a music legend and the events that shaped the music that defines the moment.
Andrew Darlington is a renowned music journalist and critic whose work has been widely published in newspapers and magazines. He also writes fiction-particularly science fiction-and poetry. He lives in West Yorkshire, England. He is a dedicated blogger and maintains a blog at http://andrewdarlington.blogspot.co.uk/ where he writes on books, music and anything else that appeals to him.
