Sly Stone Wants An All-Albino Band

He was the musical genius who gave pop a goosing with the Family Stone – and threw it all away in a haze of drugs and paranoia. Now, at the age of 70, he tells Alexis Petridis about his planned comeback with an all-albino band. Why? Sly responds: “My feeling about it is that it could neutralize all the different racial problems. All races have albinos. If we all realize that we’ve all got albinos in our families, it’s going to take away from the ridiculous racial tension.” And don’t you dare say that this notion sounds like an old vaudeville freak show. Sly will growl at you for that!
