Jefferson Starship Founder Hopes Singer Grace Slick's Retirement Plans Don't Stick

Jefferson Airplane Star Marty Balin Is Hoping Former Bandmate Grace Slick Will Have A Change Of Heart About Performing Again - Because She's Still A Great Singer.

The White Rabbit hitmaker quietly stepped out of the spotlight some years ago and has since become an in-demand artist.

Balin catches up with her every "once in a while" and insists she's still the vibrant folk-rocker she always was, despite her fears she's too old for the stage.

He tells BlogTalkRadio, "I don't know if she's retired from music completely but she doesn't want to get up on stage again. She feels she's too old, which is a shame.

"I was doing a benefit one time with the Starship in L.A. for the firemen and out of the corner of my eye I see this lady in a burka come dancing out on the stage and I said, 'That's gotta be Grace'. She's just singing through this burka in the mic with me. She takes off the burka headdress and it's her.

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
