A Little Slice of History: Grace Slick

A Little Slice of History: Grace Slick

Jun 12, 2012

Before Grace Slick joined Jefferson Airplane and sang some of the most popular songs of a generation, she was a typical woman growing up in the late ’50s and early ’60s. She even got married to Jerry Slick at age 20. The best thing that came out of the short-lived marriage was the song “Somebody to Love” written by her brother-in-law for their band, The Great Society. The Great Society broke up after about a year because two band members were enthralled with tablas and sitars and were ready to move to India to be closer to that sound they loved. Around the same time, Jefferson Airplane’s singer left the band and Jack Casady, bass player, asked Grace Slick to join sing for them. And well… the rest is history.
