Grace Slick Art
Grace stayed in the Bay Area until she left to attend Finch College in New England, She later attended the University of Miami and studied art before returning to SF shortly before she joined the Great Society in 1965. Slick in 2008 After retiring, and after a house fire, divorce, and breakup, Slick began drawing and painting animals, mainly to amuse herself and because doing so made her happy during a difficult period in her life.
Soon thereafter, she was approached about writing her memoir, which ultimately became Somebody to Love? A Rock-and-Roll Memoir. Her agent saw her artwork and asked her to do some portraits of some of her various contemporaries from the rock-and-roll genre to be included in the autobiography.
Hesitant at first (because she thought “it was way too cute. Rock-n-Roll draws Rock-n-Roll”), she eventually agreed because she found she enjoyed it, and color renditions of Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and Jerry Garcia appeared in the completed autobiography. An Alice in Wonderland-themed painting and various other sketches are scattered throughout the book.
Her paintings of Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady were used for the cover art of the album The Best of Hot Tuna. Though Slick has been drawing and painting since she was a child, she admits to not being able to multitask, so did not do much of it while she was focusing on her musical career. A notable exception is the cover art of her first solo album, Manhole, which she signed “Child Type Odd Art by Grace”.
Grace Slick Jefferson Airplane
Jefferson Airplane’s singer Signe Toly Anderson left the band to raise her child, and Jack Casady asked Slick to join them. Slick stated that she joined the Airplane because it was run in a professional manner, unlike the Great Society. With Slick on board, the Airplane began recording new music, and they turned in a more psychedelic direction from their former folk-rock style. Surrealistic Pillow included new recordings of “White Rabbit” and “Somebody to Love”, both of which became top 10 singles.
Jefferson Airplane became one of the most popular bands in the country and earned Slick a position as one of their female rock musicians of her time. In 1968, Slick performed “Crown of Creation” on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour in blackface and ended the performance with a Black Panther first. In an appearance on a 1969 episode of The Dick Cavett Show, she became the first person to say “motherfucker” on television during a performance of “We Can Be Together”.
Grace Slick White Rabbit
“White Rabbit” is a song written by Grace Slick and recorded by the American rock band Jefferson Airplane for their 1967 album Surrealistic Pillow. It was released as a single and became the band’s second top-10 success, peaking at number eight on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was ranked number 478 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Slick quit them and joined Jefferson Airplane
Grace Slick Chick-Fil-A
Grace Slick, the former frontwoman of Jefferson Airplane and Starship, is not a fan of fried chicken sandwich mega-chain Chick-fil-A, because of the political leanings of its CEO Dan Cathy, and the company’s previous decision to donate funds to an anti-LGBQT organization.
But the singer agreed to let Chick-fil-A use the Starship song “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” in a commercial that eventually aired during the Grammy telecast so that she could take their money and donate it to Lambda Legal, an organization that offers legal support to the LGBQT community and people living with AIDS.
In an op-ed for Forbes, Slick writes: “instead of them replacing my song with someone else’s and losing this opportunity to strike back at anti-LGBQT forces, I decided to spend the cash in direct opposition to ‘Check’-fil-A’s causes — and to make a public example of them, too.” Slick also mentions that she comes from “a time when artists didn’t just sell their soul to the highest bidder when musicians took a stand when the message of songs was ‘feed your head,’ not ‘feed your wallet.’” The singer/songwriter urges other musicians to similarly use their “gifts to help stop the forces of bigotry.”
