Boy I wish they'd get back together for a few concerts at least. One of the great bands of all time. BTW, they didn't celebrate the "differences" between people. They celebrated what we all have in common. Which is 99% of everything important...

I am happy to hear that Fred is doing well. He won't remember me but we went to school together back at good old Farragut Elementary in Vallejo. I enjoyed the music they made with the Family Stone group and remember brother Sly's "Yellow Moon" recording with the Vallejo High School group the Viscanes. Keep up the good work Fred and I'm glad you found your calling.

Some people have no parent to look up to as a roll model and many times its just a matter of finding someone you believe has contributed things in there life that you respect and you can just follow that persons path and get the same values and rewards as that person has. Some popular/famous Vallejo people that found success like Bill Buckner/baseball, ConFunkShun/music, Jeff Gordon/race car driver, Dick Bass/football star, all from Vallejo and all had dreams they followed and succeeded in at least to a point. Now we still have a member of Sly and the Family Stone who, without question were one of the most successful and greatest groups of that decade. Even though some members broke off and went through struggles some made it. Pastor Frederick Stewart came from the bottom, struggled with the Devil and found God. I still enjoy those "Oldies",
