About Sly Stone
It has been claimed that the overall estimate of Sly Stone net worth is as much as 150 thousand dollars. He earned his net worth because of his involvement into music, where he is a singer, song writer and music producer. Sly Stone was born in 1943 in Denton, Texas and his real birth name is Sylvester Stewart. He grew up with one brother and three sisters. All of his siblings got involved into show business later in their lives, except his one sister named Loretta. Sly Stone firstly became famous as a solo singer and at that time he was going under the name of Danny Stewart. When he was studying in high school, Sly Stone joined the band known as “The Viscaynes”. In addition to that, he and his brother created their own group called “The Stewart Brothers”.
In the 1960s, Sly Stone was working as a DJ in California as he was hired by the radio station KSOL. Moreover, he was also hired to work as a record producer for Autumn Records. Thus, these involvements not only made his name well known but also added up a lot to the overall amount of Sly Stone net worth. He has been working as a record producer for many well known artists, such as The Beau Brummels and Bobby Freeman, in addition to some others.
In the middle of the 1960s, Sly Stone created a group called “The Stoners”. Later, he created another band called “Sly and The Family Stone”. This band has also served as an important source of increasing the overall sum of Sly Stone net worth. In this band, Sly Stone was joined by his sister Rosie, his brother Fred, Larry Graham, Jerry Martini and Greg Errico. Although the beginning of the group was not so successful, Sly Stone and the band became more known in the end of the 60s when it released such songs as “Life” and “Stand”.
However, the success of the band started to diminish when the band members started to argue with each other more and more and began to use drugs and alcohol. In 1971, Greg Errico left the band and he was replaced by Andy Newmark. In 1972, Rustee Allen replaced Larry Graham. In 1975, the whole band broke up and stopped performing together. Nevertheless, it made Sly Stone’s name very popular and added up a lot to Sly Stone net worth.
