“Hippies and flower children of the 60’s would always describe one sick beat of any nature as being “Groovy” or “Far out”. We feel the same way. It doesn’t matter if it’s guitar, bass, violin, piano, ukulele, anything! This is the beats that intoxicate our brains, blow our minds, and really send us …well… Far out man.”

Grace Slick is an American icon who enchanted us with her voice during her years as a lead singer of Jefferson Airplane and later Starship. Her voice is extremely powerful and epitomizes psychedelic rock for me. Grace holds the prestigious rank #20 on VH1’s 100 greatest women of rock and roll. I found this interview with her to be particularly interesting because of her attempt to lace Nixon’s tea with LSD. It’s too bad that she was thwarted by White House security, as Nixon on acid would have definitely been a sight to see.
In case you somehow haven’t heard of Jefferson airplane, here’s one of their most famous songs, white rabbit. A song which Grace reported to have written in an hours time. Another song that you probably have heard at least once is “Somebody to Love,” an equally catchy tune. Grace also held the record for the oldest female vocalist on a Billboard hot 100 chart topping single, with the song “We Built This City.” The song ranked #1 in 1985, right after Grace’s 46th birthday.
