Vanity Fair profiles Sylvester Stewart

Above: One of 14 shots from the VF slideshow

There was a fascinating -not to mention, super lengthy- article on Sly Stone in a recent Vanity Fair. The timing is pretty sweet as far as we're concerned, considering the recently released box set of his material (and its crazy-affordable single-disc reissue counterparts). He's such a mysterious and wonderful artist, and it's great to see someone attempt to get to the bottom of his elusive legacy.

"Will Sly show up?" the piece begins. "I sure hope so. I have an appointment with him. I've flown across the country and quadruple-checked to make sure we're still on."

We definitely have the new Spoon album (which is great!), but unfortunately, we're all out of EPs.
