Weekend Music

Happy birthday (81!) to Grace Slick (The Great Society/Jefferson Airplane/Starship), the charismatic vocalist, songwriter and iconoclast who helped lead the music explosion in San Francisco in the mid- late '60s.  The Jefferson Airplane's "Surrealistic Pillow" remains one of our favorite albums of that era, and Grace contributed significantly, singing lead on "Somebody To Love" (written by her brother- in- law Darby) and writing and singing lead on "White Rabbit."  (The "White Rabbit" video footage was shot at Woodstock and the song audio is edited from the album by the subscription channel.)  Hope you enjoy.
