    Description

    Discover what it was really like during, and after, the summer of love - and how one remarkable woman survived it all to remain today as vibrant and rebellious as ever. Grace Slick was the original "great rock diva." As the lead singer of Jefferson Airplane, which produced the classics "White Rabbit" and "Somebody to Love," she was at the forefront of the '60s and '70s counterculture. Now, in her inimitable voice, she offers a revealing portrait of the complex woman behind the rock-outlaw image, and delivers a behind-the-scenes view of rock's grandest stages.

    Abridged books - Ugh! Not enough detail!

    First of all, abridged versions of books - and especially abridged versions of celebrity autobiographys - should be avoided at all cost. As is the case here, what you get is a jumpy, choppy narrative where huge chunks are missing. And since most of us listening to this will have at least a passing familiarity with Grace Slick, you'll find yourself saying "Wait a minute - what about...?" It's a bit difficult to judge this, because we don't know what Slick herself left out and what is being left out simply because it's the "abridged" version.

    That being said, Slick's reading is rather flat and dull, and I found her constant unapologetic (even at age 60-something) ramblings about her childish antics a bit silly. She's definitely a rebel without a cause, unless you count shocking people simply for the sake of shocking them a "cause." Yawn. At least some of the other hippies of the time where trying to shock people into doing something about ending the Vietnam War, not just hoping to get a reaction by using the F-word and wearing silly, inappropriate getups.

    There are some definite gems here, such as her account of her one-nighter with Jim Morrison and her plan with Abbie Hoffman to dose Richard Nixon with LSD at a White House tea (!) but I definitely found myself wanting more. And there is very little about her daughter (again, the fault of Slick or the abridged version?), which I was interested in: how does the daughter of Grace Slick rebel? By becoming a Republican debutant? We'll never know, unless it's in the unabridged book.

    All in all, if you're interested in this period in musical history (and it is fascinating), I recommend reading David Crosby's autobiography "Long Time Gone" and the book "Hotel California" (neither, sadly, available on audiobook) or listening to "Laurel Canyon" (available on Audible). Much more satisfying.

    Grace Slick is Still Cool

    What did you love best about Somebody to Love??

    The straight forward, realistic delivery.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Somebody to Love??

    When Grace Slick told stories regarding her resentment toward cops getting into her business. I can relate. I couldn't keep my mouth shut, as a young man, much like her.

    What about Grace Slick’s performance did you like?

    Her enthusiasm for her life experiences and her book came through in an exciting way.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    One Slick life Grace!

    Ya know what - she’s not that interesting

    Sure the stories are “cute”
    But this was Not A musical genius. She was a sorta pretty girl with a bit of restlessness - an affinity for altered states and a bit of a voice.

    There is no wisdom I found in any of these tales.

    Grace - you were iconic. A cool lady. But ya know - looking back - what shocked is now droll.

    The woman gave us some good music. She created a persona. Bless her

    As for the book . Zzzzzzzz

    Frankly - but for the celebrity of the crowd - we can (and some have wink ) all do lots of drugs and sex and music and breaking things. Heck we can all even order strawberries.

    Ya know - maybe it’s true what they say -

    NEVER MEET YOUR HEROS

    Love the book loved the audiobook

    My favourite autobiography ever. I'm biased as she's an idol of mine. But I'm so happy to have found it in an audio version as well.

    bad girl not so bad just not very well informed

    It has a nice middle but the 3rd part does not make any sense.I like the bits about her
    young girlhood and early band days because they felt really real.
    I am not judging her life choices , they are often interesting from a backstory point of view
    but there is no sense of grace( no pun intended) or self compassion, in her voice and writing ..
    No reflection about people that adds up . It is more like a postcard from
    her subconcious.

    Love Grace Slick

    I took Grace to Vietnam with me twice. 70-71. Her music & voice could always help me forget the hell

    Too short but fun

    I grew up in Palo Alto in the same time along with Robert Hunter 2 doors down Garcia pigpen et al. It was a road of nostalgia and good story about Grace and that whole period

    too short

    Great to hear Grace's story. However, the book felt too short of a listen. I was hoping for more details about the her life with the Airplane!
