As my story on Sly Stone for Vanity Fair was going to press, really late in the game, Sly’s sister Vet called to tell me that her brother wanted to send me a statement “about what’s going on now, about the war.” I was told to expect a fax. And the following morning, upon arising, I found this extraordinary document waiting in the machine. I could only fit a small snippet of it into the article, but it’s such a fascinating, free-associative note–encompassing current events, his take on my persistent pursuit of an interview with him, his own fears of being portrayed in a bad light, some borderline Borscht Belt humor, and a playful (?) threat–that I thought you’d enjoy reading it. And trying to parse it.

By the way, his sister says he liked the story.
