Sly Stone...Homeless

New York Post reports that funk legend Sly Stone is homeless and living in a white van in Los Angeles:

The van is parked on a residential street in Crenshaw, the rough Los Angeles neighborhood where “Boyz n the Hood” was set. A retired couple makes sure he eats once a day, and Stone showers at their house. The couple’s son serves as his assistant and driver.
