Silver is always available.

You cannot access the following:
Online Multiplayer
Demos (delayed for a week for silver members)
I believe Facebook, LastFM and the like are also blocked

It's always available.

You can't play multiplayer games, you can't use facebook on the xbox, and you can't get access to the Deal of the Week (this week was Torchlight for 33% off).

You can still chat with people, add them, voice chat, view others achievements, download demos, videos, arcade and indie games, etc. Basically everything except actually playing multiplayer games. I've had silver for 5 years now and never looked back.

Just a note, if he is getting a new 360, the first 3 Live accounts made on it will automatically receive a 1-month Gold subscription.
