Along with James Brown and Parliament-Funkadelic, Sly & the Family Stone were pioneers of late 1960s and early '70s funk. Their fusion of R&B rhythms, infectious melodies, and psychedelia created a new pop/soul/rock hybrid the impact of which has proven lasting and widespread. Stone's racial, sexual, and stylistic mix, had a major influence in the 1980s on artists such as Prince and Rick James- and many artists from the 1990s forward — including Public Enemy, Fatboy Slim, Beck and others.
