Grace was gorgeous - and so was Mariska Veres (Shocking Blue), who had a rivalling voice.

I posted this pic of Grace in the Goddess thread a couple of months ago  ... my fave, I think ...

^^ I also like the finger giving pic, thought the others are nice too.  Luckily she survived from the acid days quite sane.

Jefferson Airplane is my top ten (maybe even top 5) most important rock group and formany things , they were even ahead of the Beatles. Certainly the most important US group in my mind;

But JEff Airplane 5*, Jeff Starship 2,5 * and the awful Starship 0*

CASADY is the top in bass playing: rewrote the book with Entwistle and Jack Bruce

Superbly interesting book about them called Got A Revolution? written by jeff Tamarkin

Yes Slick was a fairly easy lay. She was very promiscuous: she slept with Casady to thank him for the JA singer job, then she was in a liaison  with Spencer Dryden for three yearts, she had bouts of sleepîng with Kaukkonen and then had a kid with Kantner.

Only Balin never shagged her!

 

 

Her real maiden name is Grace Wing , and thanks to that she got invited to the White house for a bithrday reception of Nixon's daughter who had been to classmates in high school. She went dressed very RNR to that reception but got ejected very quick!!! Wonder why????

JEFFERSON AIRPLANE is my all-time favourite band. What a shame they
had to go on to become JEFFERSON STARSHIP and then STARSHIP.

We Built This City on Rock and Roll...

 

But then, "Jane" and "Girl With The Hungry Eyes" on "Freedom at Point Zero" were damned good songs!

 

Is anyone else familiar with Grace's amazing songwriting (and singing, of course) with "The Great Society" (pre Jefferson Airplane)?

Somewhat worryingly I totally agree with Stebo32, Grace Slick is fantastic.

of course some thirty years ofd drug and rock abuse , will destroy any living organism and render a rather aged look!

I prefer the Jefferson Starship abums. I have these:

 

The first REAL JEFFERSON STARSHIP album, very very good (biggest JS hit here, "Miracles," wonderful song)

 

My first JS album, very underrated



A compilation of their greatest hits with a new track. Shortens "Miracles"


.....kicked Grace outta the band for this one, enter Aynsley Dunbar, hugely underrated drummer!!! By the way, is it just me, or does Mickey Thomas sound very similar to Grace????  Also, this albums a little proggy if you ask me



Grace returned on Modern Times, which I've yet to hear. I just got this album, great stuff, but not as great as previous releases.



I like this one better than Winds of Change, but again, it doesn't stand up. Note the Peter Gabriel reference!!!  Seems almost to be some sort of concept album.....


By the way, has anyone heard this:



Really good, pre-JS stuff with an all-star lineup. JA and JS fans will probably both enjoy this



I love Grace, but kinda lost respect for her when I saw her in an interview on CNN where she claimed Eminem was one of her favorite arists of today.  Oh well, still gotta love the music. I hope to have a complete JS and maybe even JA collection eventually.


But seriously, who wants this?
