Sly Stone's harsh toke of a living situation

Everyone knows Sly Stone's been a little bit off the deep end for a while now, but even still the news getting around today that he's currently living out of a camper van parked on a street in the Crenshaw neighborhood in LA seems to really be bumming people out. Stone seems to be OK with the situation, though. "I just do not want to return to a fixed home," he says, and he claims to be recording new music in the van at a furious pace. Of course it's uncertain that we'll ever be able to hear any of it—like a lot of older musicians he claims to have lost a substantial portion of the income he could be making off of the continued popularity of his old stuff to a series of bad deals, and his paranoia regarding record labels is remarkably severe even for someone who's already been through the wringer once or twice.
