Sly Stone to Hot Springs ... maybe

Posted By on Mon, Oct 12, 2009 at 1:15 PM


You'll know him by his belt.

The Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival, which kicks off on Friday, has confirmed its first blockbuster guest, though you'll be forgiven if you're a bit skeptical. Funk-soul pioneer Sly Stone of Sly and the Family Stone, who's only made a handful of public appearances in the last 20 years (and often left those abruptly), has told festival organizers that he'll attend the world premiere of "Coming Back for More," a documentary about his mysterious later years, though according to program director Dan Anderson, he's refused a plane ticket and a hotel room (he apparently stays up for days on end, Anderson said).

So we'll see.

The film premiers at 7 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 16. Tickets are $20 for a day pass, $50 for a three day pass or $150 for a full festival pass. High schoolers go for free and college students get in for a $1 a day.

Check out the trailer below.
