An Icon Vanished: Searching for Sly Stone w/ Michael Rubenstone

An Icon Vanished: Searching for Sly Stone w/ Michael Rubenstone

He was a genius who straddled musical genres, broke barriers, and stole the show at the greatest musical event ever: Woodstock. Sylvester Stewart, better known as “Sly Stone,” was the songwriter, arranger, producer, singer, and virtuoso on any instrument in the studio for his hand-picked group, The Family Stone. Sly shot across the musical horizon like the brightest of comets. He was omnipresent on America’s cultural pages for 5 years, producing legendary music and songs that are STILL a mainstay on playlists. 3 #1 songs in 3 years; then he disappeared. What happened to Sly Stone?

For 40 years he’s been out of the public eye, a complete recluse – spoken about in hushed tones, but rarely if ever seen. Michael Rubenstone is an actor and filmmaker who conceived and created a brilliant documentary, On the Sly: The Search for the Family Stone, to achieve one goal: FIND SLY STONE. It was a multi-year ride, but what a damn ride it was!! Watch and listen as Michael Rubenstone details the years and travails spent searching for a vanished icon: Sly Stone.

How the @#$!% Was That a Hit: “Strawberry Letter 23”

How did “Strawberry Letter 23” become a hit for the Brothers Johnson? You match up a magical melody dreamed up by a musical prodigy, Shuggie Otis, put it at the fingertips of one of the greatest producers in the history of music, Quincy Jones, and pour it through the sweet soulful voice and fantastic playing of George (“Lightnin’ Licks”) and Louis (“Thunder Thumbs”) Johnson. It was destiny.

Amway: The Cult Next Door W/Robert Fitzpatrick

Amway: The Cult Next Door W/Robert Fitzpatrick

Amway: In the world of multi-level marketing (MLM) one player stands head and shoulders above all others – Amway. In the 1950’s the founders created what they called “The Plan” – the product wasn’t the focus – the focus was the distributor – and it was brilliant. “The Plan” raked in billions for the company and they adopted a sophisticated game-plan by immersing themselves in “Americana” branding and becoming a major political donor. In the world of MLMs, they are the ones you overlook, because they choose to hide in plain sight, with stadium naming deals and members of Presidential cabinets. They are the cult next door. Author of “Ponzinomics,” Robert FitzPatrick is the leading expert on the history of MLM and he’ll share the origin story of Amway and “The Plan” they created that all the MLMs now follow. He’ll explain why it’s literally impossible to make a profit unless you’re in on the scam at the start, and why when you really look into the structure one thing becomes clear: MLMs are cults.
