Grace Slick, to the public mind, is synonymous with Jefferson Airplane and Jefferson Starship in the way that Mick Jagger is synonymous with the Rolling Stones.
...
Ironically, Grace was not an original member of the band, nor was she with Starship at the very end. But Grace's importance to every phase of the band cannot be underestimated. White Rabbit, which she wrote, helped define not only Jefferson Airplane but also the acid rock era. Her unconventional vocals on Somebody to Love gave the Airplane its biggest hit. As one of the first female rock stars (as opposed to pop singers), Grace helped redefine women's role in modern music as more than just a sex symbol backed by a band. Of course, with her statuesque beauty and icy blue eyes, Grace had the sex symbol bit down pat as well.
...
Grace Slick quickly emerged as an icon of the psychedelic scene that followed. She always downplayed her own significance in the press, suggesting that she got the most attention because she was the only woman in the band. But such comments disregard Grace's obvious talents and extroverted personality. She would literally say and do anything. While appearing on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour in 1968, she wore blackface and raised her fist in a Black Panther salute. During one rainy outdoors concert, she performed topless rather than getting her blouse wet. On another occasion, she drunkenly referred to a wealthy audience as "filthy jewels" (a comment misheard by some as "filthy Jews").
...
Grace felt an immediate connection with Spencer, since they were both initially "outsiders.
...
Though they never married, Grace decided that she wanted to have Paul's child. Their daughter, China, was born on January 25, 1971. (In typical Grace fashion, she initially told the press that she was going to name the child "god.")
...
Grace later said that, had they been allowed in, they had planned to spike Nixon's tea with LSD.
But as the Airplane began to disintegrate in the early '70s, Grace coped with it and the pressures of motherhood by drinking. On May 13, 1971, a mere four months after becoming a mother, Grace was involved in a near-fatal drunk driving accident. After an all-night recording session, she and Jorma drag-raced their sports cars near the Golden Gate Bridge. Grace lost control and crashed into a retaining wall. Miraculously, she escaped with only serious concussions.
...
According to Grace, she had wandered on stage without her glasses during an argument between the police and the band's road manager. Seeking to steady herself, she grabbed onto a policeman's uniform. He responded by macing her.
...
n early 1974, Grace released her first solo album, Manhole. During that same period, Grace agreed to form a new band with Paul, Jefferson Starship.
...
To Marty's consternation, Grace continued to command the public's attention, albeit in the form of controversial behavior. In 1978, Grace was dragged off the stage of a local San Francisco game show after abusing contestants.
In the meantime, Grace had found a new love in the form of lighting director Skip Johnson.
...
Over the years, Grace has been the subject of two biographies.
...
In the years since her retirement, Grace has turned to another creative endeavor - painting.
...
For Grace, whose shoulder-length hair is now completely white (she had been dyeing it since her mid-20s), it's a chance to create something that doesn't involve her appearance.

Grace Slick & The Great Society

And Grace Slick just happened to have joined the Airplane in… mid-October!
...
The Airplane was writing more & more of its own songs, especially with the arrival of Ms. Slick, so they started relying less on outside material.
...
Not only is it a very early JA concert piece, but future member Grace Slick is present, too, pictured as a member of the Great Society.
In October of the following year, Grace would leave the Great Society and join the Airplane, from which point the group “took off†to major commercial success.
