Grace Slick

Biography

American singer, the queen of acid-rock with "Jefferson Airplane," which evolved into "Jefferson Starship." In 1979 she put the group on the back burner and focused on a solo album instead. Six years later the band had a bitter split.

She married the bands former light man, Skip Johnson, but the relationship didn't last. In 1981 she had a daughter named China with the band's guitarist, Paul Kantner, but they never married.

At the time of the Woodstock festival in 1969 she was a non-user. She later went on to develop a long-time drinking habit.

In 1982, she stopped doing drugs and alcohol altogether. Her sober streak apparently ended inasmuch as on 3/05/1994, the police in Tiburon, CA received a call that a drunk woman was firing a gun. When police arrived she threatened three officers with an unloaded shotgun. At her trial on a felony weapons charge, she settled for a plea bargain that set her free on $7,000 bail and required her to attend an alcohol treatment program. As of late 1994 she was attending four AA meetings a week and seeing a psychologist.

Her large four-bedroom home was destroyed by fire 9/16/1993, started by an accidental spark from welders working nearby. Estimated damage at $700,000.

Source Notes

B.C. in hand from the Wilsons (Same data from Barbara Rowes, "Grace Slick," 1980, p.2.)

(Formerly, Scott Silverman quoted her autobiography "Someone to Love" that Slick claimed to have made up the birth time of 7:47 A.M., explicitly repeating that no one in her family knows when she was born. She writes in her autobiography, "Virginia Wing gave birth to Grace Barnett Wing at 7:47 AM. Well not really. I don't know my actual time of birth or the name of the hospital, because they weren't written on my birth certificate. Back then, record keepers weren't an anal-compulsive as they are today, so I've always made up my own stats when it was time to fill in the blanks." She is apparently misinformed as the B.C. in hand was filed on Nov 6th, 1939 and signed by Dr. Winston H. Tucker.)
