About Sly & The Family Stone

After appearing in vaudeville as a child, Fred Stone teamed up with David Montgomery, in 1894. Their song and dance double act was an immediate success, and in 1901 they made their Broadway debut in The Girl From Up There. Their greatest success came in the 1903 Broadway production of The Wizard Of Oz in which Montgomery played The Tin Man while Stone was The Scarecrow. Other Broadway hits included The Red Mill (1906), The Old Town (1909), and The Lady Of The Slipper (1912). After Montgomery’s sudden death in 1917, Stone took the title role in Jack O’ Lantern (1917) and appeared in several films in the 20s and 30s, before returning to Broadway in a 1945 revival of You Can’t Take It With You.
