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?

We can confirm that Sly Stone has entered rehab over the weekend and when he gets out, he wants to record with Lady Gaga.

This was the statement released to drfunkenberry.com regarding his checking into rehab;

"Sly wants to get clean, and stay sober. Sly has fallen on very hard times in the past few years. Sly will be in rehab for at least the next 90 days, and he is committed to getting sober."

So, after Sly gets out, he wants to record with Lady Gaga.  He stated in September that he has hundreds of tracks newly recorded that Gaga could use.

"I see all the guys playing those old songs. Let these guys know, like Lady Gaga, let me come in, just let me come in and pay me if you like it."

Stone recently admitted last month that he is homeless, by choice it seems, living on the streets of Crenshaw.

We really hope the 8th time is the charm for Sly.  It is truly heartbreaking to see a legend like him not able to beat and battle his demons.-DocFB

Diagnosis:  Gaga And Sly?  Hmm.

Is Sly Stone Really Homeless & Living In A Van Down By The River?

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



Ke$ha Channels Sly Stone?

Ke$ha or Kesha or Gaga Light performed on Wendy Williams and wore an interesting t-shirt. 

She wore a Sly Stone shirt and Wendy even said she is a funky girl.  Hmm.  Funky?  Well, she IS on this site.

Check out the clip above and let me know what you think.-Dr.FB
