Sly Stone Ok's Coffee Chain's Tribute Album
JOSS STONE, STEVEN TYLER and BUDDY GUY are among the stars paying tribute to reclusive funk pioneer SLY STONE on a new covers album.
Stone granted bosses at US coffee chain Starbucks permission to re-record classic SLY + THE FAMILY STONE tracks by the musician himself.
Starbucks released the star-studded compilation yesterday (13JUL05) - two months before Sony chiefs release an expanded version of the album, DIFFERENT STROKES.
Among the tracks covered are Stone, JOHN LEGEND and VAN HUNT revamping FAMILY AFFAIR, MAROON 5 covering EVERYDAY PEOPLE and Tyler teaming up with steel guitarist ROBERT RANDOLPH on I WANT TO TAKE YOU HIGHER.
One track, BLACK EYED PEAS star WILL.I.AM's version of DANCE TO THE MUSIC, will also be used on the soundtrack of upcoming movie STEALTH.14/07/2005 02:55
