Prince's Sly Tribute

(Gibson) Prince brought his three-night stand at Oakland, California's Oracle Arena to a spectacular close by paying tribute to funk legends Sly and the Family Stone, according to Spinner.com.

Following up his Monday night show (which included guest Carlos Santana and a cover of Rhianna's "Rude Boy") and Wednesday night show (which included every imaginable Prince hit) was a tall order, but Prince did just that playing a lengthy set packed full of funk and capped off with a medley of late-'60s Sly and the Family Stone songs, including "Everyday People," "Thank You (Falletinme Be Mice Elf Agin)" and "Dance to the Music."

Joining him for the slew of Sly songs was none other than original Sly bassist Larry Graham, who opened the first of Prince's two Oracle shows with his band Graham Central Station. more on this story
