Description by

Author Jeff Kaliss has scored the first face-to-face interview with Sly Stone in over twenty years, gaining his trust and making this book a must-read for any rock 'n' roll fan.

I Want to Take You Higher follows the evolution and dissolution of Sly & The Family Stone, from San Francisco favorites to global rock stars whose success was undermined by drugs and self-delusion. Kaliss brings this turbulent tale right up to date, through Sly's enigmatic Grammy performance and his recent comeback concerts, which has left audiences buzzing and perplexed.

I Want to Take You Higher includes numerous interviews with original Family Stone musicians, managers, and eyewitnesses to this decades-spanning saga - not to mention contributions from the man himself. This is an unprecedented account of one of rock's wildest rides.

Product Description:

Author Jeff Kaliss scored the first face-to-face interview with the reclusive superstar in over 20 years, making this book a must-read for any rock 'n' roll fan. From his anthemic early hits (I Want to Take You Higher, Family Affair, Dance to the Music), through the moody meditations of There's a Riot Going On and beyond, Sly and the Family Stone have left an indelible stamp on rock, funk, pop, and hip hop.
