Sly Stone

I Still Use Cocaine, Beer

... 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."

Hey TMZ, where are all the gay or transgendered stories today? I haven't seen any yet. You have to push your gay agenda on everyone don't you?

Leave him be. He is a 68-year-old crackhead and he is not going to change. Let him get high all he wants. He is not bothering anyone.

He should become a motivational speaker that does house calls. He can start with "I live in a van down by the river!".

Someone just needs to step up and put a bullet in his head. He's a waste of oxygen and serves no more purpose. TMZ, stop reporting on him, nobody cares!!

horrible druggy welfare s***..just go away ...he was a bad role model before and is now too..an example of how to not use your money..just a waste of a life..he should be the poster child for zero tolerance for drug use in this country.

he WANTS to change, no he doesnt.
in his condition and his age he should just
keep doing the things he always does..if ya yank the drugs
and crap out of his old body, probably kill him.
perhaps a nicer van would do nicely.. home make overs should build housing for people like this..keep them all together, instead of vans and refrig boxes all over the place..

Hey Sly

I strongly advise that a 68 year old like yourself should NOT be using cocaine!
Your heart just cant take that rush. You won't be around long if you do.
TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF MAN, AND MAKE A COME-BACK WHEN YOU GET HEALTHY.
WE LOVE YOUR MUSIC !
