Grace Slick, in many ways, became the poster child for drug abuse in the 1960’s. She penned the song of the decade, “White Rabbit” which is loosely be about the C.S. Lewis story, Alice in Wonderland, with great drug overtones. The song was responsible for giving Jefferson Airplane and Grace Slick to stardom. She admits she abused in her teen years but her favorite substance is always alcohol. Grace drove her vehicle into a retaining wall close to the Golden Gate Bridge in 1971 going 80 mph drunk drivingwhile under the influence. She credits many arrests to being drunk. One time, Slick prepared to put LSD into a drink of then President Nixon at a White House celebration. Slick spent time in rehabilitation in 1978 for alcohol abuse. Cleaned up in the 1980s, Slick chose to pursue a career in music but never matched the success of Jefferson Airplane or Jefferson Starship. During the 1990s, Slick had headed away from rock and roll and trained in art. During an interview with CNN Entertainment, she labeled herself as a nonpracticing alcoholic – a person that doesn’t drink but is still an alcoholic.
