- Reaction score
There was soul, R&B, rock and roll, and a lot of other stuff before Sly, then there was integrated music. So no, he didn't influence soul any more than he influenced country, but he took all those different elements and brought out a loud, brash, funky mixture of all of it. Was he the first? Maybe, maybe not, but he was certainly one of the biggest.
That MUST have been a complete trip to see. What freakin' energy!!!
