Sly and the Family Stone是一支美国乐队,代表作品有《A Whole New Thing》。   斯莱·斯通(Sly Stone),1944年出生于达拉斯,从小在教堂唱福音歌。不久随家迁往旧金山海湾地区,大学时学了三年小号、音乐理论和作曲。1967年,他效仿海湾地区的嬉皮士社团,组织了一个包括黑、白两个人种,有男有女的乐队“斯莱和斯通一家”(sly & the Family stone),共7个人,其中有斯莱的妹妹和弟弟。斯莱自己唱歌、演奏吉他和键盘乐器。   “斯莱和斯通一家”在摇滚舞曲的节拍和低音线条的基础上结合了管乐、迷幻摇滚中常用的那种比较松弛的吉他演奏,以及与吸毒有关的歌词,成了第一个表演所谓“迷幻索尔”的乐队。他们演唱时,经常由两人或三人主唱,两个明显不同的男声部与一个女声部并置在一起,产生一种独特的和声效果。   Sly and the Family Stone was an American band from San Francisco. Active from 1966 to 1983, the band was pivotal in the development of funk, soul, rock, and psychedelic music. The group's core line-up was led by singer-songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Sly Stone, and featured Stone's brother and singer/guitarist Freddie Stone, sister and singer/keyboardist Rose Stone, trumpeter Cynthia Robinson, drummer Gregg Errico, saxophonist Jerry Martini, and bassist Larry Graham. The band was the first major American rock group to have an "integrated, multi-gender" lineup.   Formed in 1966, the group's music synthesized a variety of disparate musical genres to help pioneer the emerging "psychedelic soul" sound. They soon found commercial success, recording a series of Top 10 Billboard Hot 100 hits such as "Dance to the Music" (1968), "Everyday People" (1968), and "Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)" (1969), as well critically acclaimed albums such as Stand! (1969), which combined pop sensibility with social commentary. In the 1970s, Sly and the Family Stone transitioned into a darker and less commercial funk sound that would result in releases such as There's a Riot Goin' On (1971) and Fresh (1973), proving as influential as their early work. By 1975, drug problems and interpersonal clashes led to the group's dissolution, though Sly Stone continued to record and tour with a new rotating lineup under the name "Sly and the Family Stone" until drug problems forced his effective retirement in 1987.   The work of Sly and the Family Stone greatly influenced the sound of subsequent American pop, soul, R&B, funk, and hip hop music. Music critic Joel Selvin sums up the importance of Sly and the Family Stone's influence on African American music by stating "there are two types of black music: black music before Sly Stone, and black music after Sly Stone". In 2010, they were ranked 43rd in Rolling Stone list of "The 100 Greatest Artists of All-Time," and three of their albums are included in the Rolling Stone list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993.
