Did you know that “Sly and the Family Stone” were originally two bands? In
1966, Sly Stone formed a band called “Sly
and the Stoners” and at the same time, Freddie Stone formed a band called
“Freddie and the Stone Souls.” In 1967, the brothers combined their bands.
In 1968, the latest incarnation of Madison Square Garden opened in the heart of NYC. By the 1970s, the arena was the premier showcase for music's biggest stars.
With the '00s ending and MSG's renovation scheduled to begin in 2010, we have four decades of classic concerts and one question: What's The Garden's greatest show? Each week in November, MSG will give you a chance to vote on shows from each different decade, starting with the 70’s.
Sly & the Family Stone performed at MSG back in June 1974. Concertgoers got a little something extra at this show – front man Sly Stone married model/actress Kathy Silva onstage.
