Grace Slick, in many ways, was crowned the poster girl for drug use in the 1960’s. She composed the anthem of the decade, “White Rabbit” that is certainly loosely based mostly on the C.S. Lewis tale, Alice’s adventures in wonderland, with heavy illegal drug overtones. The tune ended up being responsible for catapulting Jefferson Airplane and Grace Slick to popularity. She unquestionably experimented with illegal drugs in her adolescence however her drug of choice has been always alcohol consumption. Grace crashed her automobile right into a wall close to the Golden Gate Bridge in 1971 doing 80 mph while under the influence. She credits quite a few arrests to being drunk. At another stage, Slick plotted to slip LSD into the beverage of then President Nixon at a White House event. Slick stayed in rehab in 1978 for dependency on alcohol.
Cleaned up in the 1980s, Slick continued to follow a music career but by no means matched the success of her time with Jefferson Airplane or Jefferson Starship, the group’s later moniker. By the 1990s, Slick had left rock and roll in the past and turned her focus to visual arts. In an conversation with CNN Entertainment, she makes reference to herself as a nonpracticing alcoholic – somebody that doesn’t drink but continues to be an alcoholic.
