Happy # 75 to Grace Slick


Grace Slick is 75 and that makes everyone feel old.  

She was the face of Jefferson Airplane, the legendary group from the 1960s that became Jefferson Starship in the 1970s.     Her most famous performance was "White rabbit", a song with a reference to drug use:



WHITE RABBIT

"One pill makes you larger And one pill makes you small,

And the ones that mother gives you

Don't do anything at all.

Go ask Alice When she's ten feet tall. 

And if you go chasing rabbits And you know you're going to fall,

Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar

Has given you the call. 
Call Alice When she was just small. 


When the men on the chessboard Get up and tell you where to go

And you've just had some kind of mushroom

And your mind is moving low.

Go ask Alice  I think she'll know.

When logic and proportion Have fallen sloppy dead,
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's "off with her head!"
Remember what the dormouse said:
"Feed your head. Feed your head. Feed your head""
