Grace Slick, in several ways, was crowned the poster girl for drug abuse in the 1960’s. She published the anthem of the decade, “White Rabbit” which is loosely based mostly on the C.S. Lewis tale, Alice’s adventures in wonderland, with heavy drug overtones. The tune ended up being responsible for catapulting Jefferson Airplane and Grace Slick to fame. She admittedly experimented by way of illegal drugs in her earlier days yet her substance of preference has been often alcohol consumption. Grace crashed her vehicle into a wall nearby the Golden Gate Bridge in 1971 doing 80 miles per hour whilst under the influence. She credits several arrests to being inebriated. At an alternative point, Slick intended to slip LSD into the drink of then President Nixon at a White House event. Slick spent time within rehabilitation in 1978 for alcohol dependency.
Cleaned up in the 1980s, Slick continued to pursue a music career but practically never matched the prosperity of her time with Jefferson Airplane or Jefferson Starship, the group’s later moniker. By the 1990s, Slick had eventually left rock and roll in the past and converted her focus to visual arts. In an interview with CNN Entertainment, she alludes to herself as a nonpracticing alcoholic – somebody that doesn’t drink but continues to be an alcoholic.
