Sly - get the family back together, organize a band and hit the state fair and oldies circuit working your old numbers. You can make a living. You had a lot of hits you can milk for years if you just get out there and croak them out to a crowd. People will pay to see that.

Sly and others of his era were, in general, much more talented than the musicians of today! Most of the songs were catchy and the kind that might get stuck in your head. The lyrics were much better and wholesome. No wonder there is so much perversion and violence in society today and much of it is a direct result of exposure to the baser elements of the entertainment industry.

I forgot to add it is good he is suing and this should be a lesson to anyone who needs a business manager. Many other musicians have been taken advantage of. I wonder what took him so long to catch onto the fact he was being ripped off?

If he is going to sue anyone, he should sue Prince for getting rich performing Sly's act.
