Grace Slick

Grace Slick, in many ways, became the poster child for drug use in the 1960’s. She wrote the song of the time period, “White Rabbit” which is loosely based on the C.S. Lewis story, Alice in Wonderland, featuring substance abuse references. The song was responsible for throwing Jefferson Airplane and Grace Slick to fame. She admits she used in her youth but her favorite substance is alcoholic beverages. Grace drove her vehicle into a structure near the Golden Gate Bridge in 1971 going 80 mph drunk drivingwhile under the influence. She credits several arrests to being drunk. One time, Slick planned to slip LSD into the beverage of then President Nixon at a White House affair. Slick spent time in rehab in 1978 for alcohol abuse. Sober since the 1980s, Slick tried to pursue a career in music but did not gain the success of Jefferson Airplane or Jefferson Starship. During the 1990s, Slick had headed away from music and turned her focus to art. In an interview with CNN, she refers to herself as a nonpracticing alcoholic – a person that doesn’t drink but continues to be an alcoholic.
