Sly Stone

... but I WANT to Get Clean

Sly Stone -- ex-frontman of the '70s funk band Sly & the Family Stone -- is admitting he still abuses cocaine and alcohol ... but the 68-year-old singer insists he WANTS to clean himself up.

Stone -- who's currently living in a van in L.A. -- spoke candidly about his substance abuse issues yesterday, insisting he hasn't used drugs or taken a sip of alcohol in "a week and a half."

A discombobulated Stone claims he's chosen a rehab center -- and insists he's serious about it ... saying, "I will be there."

I have no sympathy for people like that, especially when they're drug addicts. Go to college & get a job in the real world like the rest of us-- you idiot. The higher you fly, the harder you fall.

Wow, someone of his old friends (half of them are dead, Rick James, etc. or on drugs themselves) should come out and help Sly - if it wasn't for him there would be no funk.

He won't get clean, sounds like he'd like to park his RV next to the rehab and do the program on his terms you know if he needs "a beer" or "a little cocaine" to create his music then they should turn a blind eye......yeah right.. that's gonna happen...really.
