    Sly and the Family Stone was an American band from San Francisco. Active from 1967 to 1983, the band was pivotal in the development of soul, funk, and psychedelic music. Headed by singer, songwriter, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist Sly Stone, and containing several of his family members and friends, the band was the first major American rock band to have an "integrated, multi-gender" lineup.

    Brothers Sly Stone and singer/guitarist Freddie Stone combined their bands (Sly & the Stoners and Freddie & the Stone Souls) in 1967. Sly and Freddie Stone, trumpeter Cynthia Robinson, drummer Gregg Errico, saxophonist  Jerry Martini, and bassist Larry Graham comprised the original lineup; Sly and Freddie's sister, singer/keyboardist Rose Stone, joined within a year. They recorded five Billboard Hot 100 hits which reached the top 10, and four ground-breaking albums, which greatly influenced the sound of American pop, soul, R&B, funk, and hip hop music. In the preface of his 1998 book For the Record: Sly and the Family Stone: An Oral History, Joel Selvin sums up the importance of Sly and the Family Stone's influence on African American music by stating "there are two typesof black music: black music before Sly Stone, and black music after Sly Stone".

    Nico Rosberg Takes Win at Formula One Grand Prix in Austria

    in News

    In a dramatic start in turn one, Mercedes AMG driver Nico Rosberg, got out in front of pole sitter Lewis Hamilton, and drove all the way to the finish line, at the Formula One Grand Prix, in Austria. It was a must win race for Rosberg, and in his mind, there was no doubt that he could win. Rosberg’s closest competition since the start of the season has been championship leader and teammate, Lewis Hamilton, followed by fellow German and four-time champion, Sebastian Vettel. Neither if the champions could catch Rosberg on the track or throw him off his game.

    In a desperate bid to win and stay in championship contention, Rosberg did not let anything faze him until the last few laps of the race when he was heard on team radio nervously telling his team he felt vibrations, and asking them to keep an eye on it. Rosberg’s lead was never in jeopardy as he drove a steady, and confident race.  This is Rosberg’s third win of the season, and closes the gap between him and Hamilton to, 10-points for the driver’s championship.

    Lewis Hamilton, in spite of a five-second penalty for crossing the white line going into the pit lane, held on to a second place win. All week long, Hamilton had been experiencing issues with the set-up of the car, but still managed to achieve pole.  Hamilton congratulated his teammate for the win and is looking forward to his home race at Silverstone, in Great Britain. 

    Surprisingly, Williams-Martini driver Felipe Massa was third on the podium, his first of the season, while Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel came in fourth and Massa’s teammate at Williams, Valtteri Bottas was fifth. 

    Winning in Austria was very much connected to Rosberg’s sense of pride. The Austrian Grand Prix was as close to his birthplace of Germany, as he will get all season, and winning there, was important to him.

    Two-time record setting champion Lewis Hamilton won his fourth Formula One Grand Prix since the start of the season. Seven races in, Hamilton has turned in nothing short of excellent drives for the Mercedes AMG team giving them a comfortable lead towards their second, Team Constructors Championship.

    Crossing the finish line second was Nico Rosberg, to complete a Mercedes one-two, Valtteri Bottas with Williams-Martini third, Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel both with Ferrari fourth and fifth, respectively.  Vettel started in 18th because he received a red flag infraction grid penalty, but skillfully worked his way up to, fifth. Rounding out the action on the track and in the points were, sixth place Felipe Massa who started 15th, Lotus driver Pastor Maldonado in his best showing in the last two years coming in seventh, Force India’s Nico Hulkenberg, Red Bull Daniil Kvyat, and Frenchman Romain Grosjean who qualified fifth, finished tenth.

    Pole sitter, Lewis Hamilton, got off to a great start in the Formula One Grand Prix in Canada at, Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, a street circuit on the city's Ile Notre-Dame.  His Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg had to fight for second at the starting line with Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen trying to squeeze him out. Rosberg held his position and Raikkonen fell in behind Rosberg at third.

    It was a bad day for the McLaren team when exhaust problems ended the race for Fernando Alonso, and shortly thereafter, a drive thru penalty on Jenson Button lead to his early retirement.  Sauber’s Marcus Ericcson had a challenge for fourteenth with Max Verstappen finishing 15th and Sauber’s Felipe Nasr, was 16th.

    44th Pole For Champion Lewis Hamilton During Qualifying at F1 Grand Prix Canada

    in News

    Despite a bit of rain, it was a great day in Canada for two-time world champion Lewis Hamilton on Saturday during the Formula One Grand Prix Du Canada, qualifying session.  It was Hamilton’s 44th career pole position, which is the number he wears on his helmet and displays on his car.  Since the start of the 2015 season, Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton has been on pole for 6 out of seven races.  He won four races, came in second for two, and came in third, for the heart breaking Monaco race where he was set to win until, his team strategist called him in to pit for what some say, was an un-needed tire change in the last few laps. The move allowed his Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg, to win the race. Hamilton was disappointed but later said, “He prefers to look forward.”

    Qualifying second was Nico Rosberg, and third was Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen. The man, who put Williams-Martini back on the map, Valtteri Bottas, qualified fourth.  Both Lotus drivers Romain Grosjean, and Pastor Maldonado, qualified fifth and sixth.  Force India drivers, Nico Hulkenberg and Sergio Perez 7th and 10th.  Although Red Bull continues to struggle with the car, both drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Daniil Kvyat made the top ten.

    For the first time since the start of the season, Ferrari’s other driver and four-time champion Sebastian Vettel failed to get past Q1.  McLaren-Honda had celebrity actor Michael Douglas in their camp, but they did not have Jenson Button out on the track for qualifying due to, an ERS-related failure in the last practice session on Friday. Because he will be using his fifth engine for the year, the young rookie Dutchman, Max Verstappen, driver for Toro Rosso, will suffer a 10-place grid penalty, making him start 15th.

    in News

    Starting from pole position, the fifth race of the season was a boon for Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg who wins his first race since last year in Brazil.  Rosberg, drove a near perfect race and stayed out front for most of the race. After becoming frustrated with his dwindling chances of a drivers championship, Rosberg was close to giving up as he had to stand back and watch his teammate Lewis Hamilton, win race after race. Now, Rosberg feels as if he has the momentum heading into Monaco, his home race.

    Throughout the race, Rosberg had a comfortable lead ahead of Hamilton who finished second, followed by, Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel who was second for most of the race but finish, third. Tire degradation was an Achilles heel for Hamilton and some of the others as they fought to overtake one another while trying to take care if the tires.  A pivotal part during the race that ate into Lewis Hamilton’s time was when he went in for his first pit stop.  The stop was slow and delayed for reasons that were not clear.  Hamilton still leads in points for the drivers championship with Rosberg and Vettel close enough to keep hope alive.

    Valtteri Bottas with Williams-Martini racing continued to impress fans by finishing fourth and Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen, fifth.  Bottas teammate Felipe Massa was sixth, Daniel Ricciardo seventh and Roman Grojean of Lotus, eighth.  The was some great wheel-to-wheel racing on display during the last 3 laps when hometown driver Carlos Sainz Jr., battled with Toro Rosso teammate Max Verstappen for tenth position, then quickly got out in front of Russian driver, Daniil Kvyat, and took ninth.  The Manor-Marussia team, was hanging in there with the big boys on the track, while second hometown hero Fernando Alonso, was force to retire due to brake failure, but almost ran over his pit crew when he overshot the garage. His teammate at McLaren- Honda Jenson Button, finished 16th
