Stone & Clinton Team Up To Wow Funk Fans
Funk legends Sly Stone and George Clinton wowed music fans at Los Angeles' tiny Little Temple Bar venue on Tuesday night (10Feb09) when they teamed up for an impromptu three-song jam.
Reclusive Stone was at the gig to support his daughter Novena's band Baby Stone, but took to the stage when fire marshals threatened to shut the concert down to fix a venue water damage problem.
Stone invited pal Clinton to join him for a rendition of I Want To Take You Higher, and kept revellers in high spirits with Sly & The Family Stone hit Stand. Clinton then took over and performed his classic We Want The Funk with Novena's band.
One lucky gig-goer tells WENN, "It was absolutely amazing. People were just standing around with stunned looks on their faces. No one could believe what they were seeing and hearing."
