We Are Family: Top Ten Best Family Bands Of The ’60s & ’70s

3. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Sly And The Family Stone [/lastfm]

The tag “family” worked both literally and figuratively for this funk group. Three members included siblings guitarist Freddie Stone, keyboardist and backup singer Rose Stone and the charismatic leader Sly himself, but the “family” also served the purpose of promoting a “togetherness” by having a racially integrated, multi-gender lineup.

They served as a major impact on other soul artists like Prince and had a slew of hits like “Dance To The Music.”
