Grace Slick, in many ways, was the image for substance use in the 1960’s. She penned the anthem of the decade, “White Rabbit” which is loosely based on the C.S. Lewis story, Alice in Wonderland, featuring substance abuse references. The anthem was responsible for catapulting Jefferson Airplane and Grace Slick to become widely known. She admittedly experimented with drugs in her youth but her favorite substance was alcoholic beverages. Grace crashed her car into a structure close to the Golden Gate Bridge in ‘71 going 80 mph while drunk. She gives credit to many being jailed to being drinking alcohol. At another point, Slick planned to slip LSD into the beverage of then President Nixon at a White House affair. Slick spent time in rehabilitation in 1978 for alcohol addiction. Sober since the 1980s, Slick chose to have a music career but did not gain the success of Jefferson Airplane or Jefferson Starship. By the 1990s, Slick had headed away from rock and roll and focused on visual arts. In an interview with CNN Entertainment, she refers to herself as a nonpracticing alcoholic – someone that doesn’t drink but continues to be an alcoholic.
