About this video
Here, R&B legend/Gap Band founder Charlie Wilson waxes rhapsodic about Sly & The Family Stone's classic funk hit "I Want to Take You Higher." Now usually for our On the Record series we only allow an artist to talk for 45 seconds, but when Wilson gets cut off, he's urged to keep going, and thankfully he does, revealing the first time he met Sly Stone and their conversation about Woodstock. Classic stuff. Enjoy.
