SOUL SURVIVOR: Sly Stone, now 68 years old, shows he can still get funky -- brandishing a Taser for a photo session in front of his Studebaker.
Well, I guess the rumors are true.  It looks like the people over at the NY Post track down funk legend Sly Stone and he is indeed homeless and living out of a van parked at a retired couple's house in Los Angeles.  Honestly, I can't say after the reading the article whether or not Sly is homeless by choice or if he is just being his normal eccentric self.  I'm sure he has to have some type of royalty checks rolling in; although, I do realize the time in which he came up in was notorious for people ripping people off.  Either way, I'm sure some of his musical friends could chip in to at least help him get an apartment if that was what he wants, but based on the article he really doesn't have any desire to live in a home.
"I like my small camper," he says, his voice raspy with age and years of hard living. "I just do not want to return to a fixed home. I cannot stand being in one place. I must keep moving."
'I like my small camper. I just do not want to return to a fixed hom ... I must keep moving,' Stone says.
