Sly Stone is in a rehab facility for 30 days and will spend 60 more days in there to avoid jail time. While Herman Cain cops a feel, Sly copped a plea.
Sly was arrested earlier this year in April for being in possession of cocaine while doing a search of his vehicle.
He pleaded no contest to the charges on Tuesday and agreed to the sentencing of 60 more days in rehab other than jail time.
Stone has said when he gets out of rehab, he hopes to return to his music career and work with Lady Gaga along with others.
We are pulling for Sly......we just hope it is not the same song and dance for someone so legendary.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Drugs are bad....OK?
This is seriously no joke; Sly Stone is homeless. Regardless if he does not mind, one of the great musical pioneers of the 60's and 70's is living in a van in Los Angeles.
I know through the years, several have reached out to Sly but he has not taken their help. Holly Robinson Peete was pleading via Twitter for Sly to live with her. Seriously.
I have been trying to find this white van that the NY Post had found in Los Angeles. What I can tell you is that family members say is it Sly's decision to live in the van. Yes, he is broke due to his drug habit and also bad business decisions.
This is hard for me. This is what happens when you do not respect money but also like Rick James used to say "cocaine is a hell of a drug."
We all know Sly's music. We have heard it in our soul. In movies. In stupid car commercials. HE sold his publishing rights in the 1980's and Michael Jackson bought them for considerably less than what they were worth.
Sly believes he is on his way to a musical comeback and does not want to live in one place, but this is too much.
We have to ask, does Sly even want the help of "Everyday People" right now? This is not living. This is not funk. This is not happiness. Right?-DocFB
Check out the campaign that Virgin Mobile and Lady Gaga are doing to help the homeless and work at homeless youth shelters.
Gaga will match $25,000 in donations. Very cool of her.-Dr.FB
In September, he helped stranded motorists. Now, Romo is helping the homeless one at a time.
Dallas Morning News' Tim MacMahon had this to say about Tony's new heroics:
A homeless man who goes by Doc was cashing in change at a Cinemark theater in Dallas when a guy walked up and offered to pay his way into the movie ["Role Models"]. Doc, who planned to spend his day passing out flyers for a few bucks, accepted a rain check before realizing that he recognized the generous gentleman [as Romo]. ...
Romo, who confirmed the story but didn't want to elaborate, waved Doc over to sit by him and his buddy. Doc sheepishly mentioned that he hadn't showered in a few days. "Don't worry about that," Romo said. "I'm used to locker rooms." ...
"For me, it was a blessing," Doc said. "It came at just the right time. It gave me some encouragement and faith in mankind. I just wanted to say thank you."
Romo, not even wanting to elaborate? Sounds like a guy who was brought up right and just simply knows practicing random acts of kindness is what we as humans are supposed to do.
I got a man-crush on Romo. Got a problem with it, Jessica?-Dr.FB
