Episode Description

Born in Evanston, Illinois in 1939, Grace Slick would later become the face of the Cultural Revolution taking place in 1960s America. Slick was known for her penchant for the drugs and alcohol that fueled her through provocative lyrics and impassioned performances. Most famous for her work with Jefferson Airplane, the song "White Rabbit" became an anthem for those seeking altered states of consciousness. The 1980s saw the Jefferson Airplane transform to the Jefferson Starship, which was often ridiculed for selling out and creating overly commercial pop ballads more suited to movie soundtracks than underground clubs. Regardless, Slick's legacy as a counter revolutionary remains to this day as she paved the way for countless female vocalists seeking to emulate her unique style.
