Somebody to Love?: A Rock-and-Roll Memoir
She has been called rock and roll's original female outlaw, as famous for her bad behaviour as for her haunting singing voice. From White Rabbit and Somebody to Love to Sarah and Miracles, the songs she performed became the anthems of a generation. Whether describing her antics at the White House with Abbie Hoffman or the unforgettable experience that was Woodstock, Slick's recollections have the same rich imagery found in her lyrics. In this provocative narrative, readers will discover the many sides of Grace Slick: as artistic pioneer; she records songs with Jerry Garcia and David Crosby; as practitioner of freedom and rebellion; she beds Jim Morrison and gets arrested for DUI on three separate occasions; without actually being in a car; and as a loving mother to actress China Kantner; she tries to balance casual friendship with parental wisdom. Through the unflinching eye of a survivor, this no-holds-barred memoir brings to life the people and spirit that defined a quarter-century of American pop culture.In her 25-year career as a musician, Grace Slick charted dozens of hits and sold millions of albums; Jefferson Airplane (1965-1972) hit #3 on the Billboard charts with Surrealistic Pillow, and Jefferson Starship (1974-1989) charted four #1 singles. Includes one 4-page colour photo insert.Also available as a Time Warner AudioBook read by the author.
