Grace Slick, in many ways, was crowned the poster girl for drug use in the 1960’s. She published the anthem of the decade, “White Rabbit” which happens to be loosely based upon on the C.S. Lewis tale, Alice’s adventures in wonderland, with heavy illegal drug overtones. The record seemed to be responsible for catapulting Jefferson Airplane and Grace Slick to popularity. She unquestionably experimented by way of drugs in her adolescence however her drug usually chosen was usually drinking. Grace rammed her automobile into a wall near the Golden Gate Bridge in 1971 doing 80 miles per hour while under the influence. She attributes various arrests to being intoxicated. At an alternative stage, Slick planned to slip LSD into the drink of then President Nixon at a White House event. Slick stayed within treatment in 1978 for alcohol addiction.
Cleaned up in the 1980s, Slick continued to engage in a music career but never equalled the prosperity of her time with Jefferson Airplane or Jefferson Starship, the group’s later name. By the 1990s, Slick had eventually left rock n roll in the past and turned her focus to visual arts. In an conversation with CNN Entertainment, she alludes to herself as a nonpracticing alcoholic – a person that doesn’t drink but continues to be an alcoholic.
