Somebody to Love?: A Rock-and-Roll Memoir
About the Book
She was the original "great rock diva," as famous for her bad behaviour as for her haunting singing voice, the lead singer of Jefferson Airplane stood at the forefront of the '60s and '70s counterculture and belted out classics like "White Rabbit" and "Somebody to Love." Now, in her own inimitable voice, Grace Slick offers a revealing self-portrait of the complex woman behind the rock-outlaw image, and delivers a behind-the-scenes, no-holds-barred view of rock's grandest stages. 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. Wildly funny, candid, and evocative, SOMEBODY TO LOVE? tells what it was really like during, and after, the Summer of Love --- and how one remarkable woman survived it all.
