1999. “The Best Of Grace Slick”.

I wrote two of the songs with Grace on this com­pi­la­tion album.
“Hyper­drive” and “Bet­ter Lying Down”. I wrote the music and Grace the lyrics.
I also played on a few of the oth­er tracks on the CD. Grace had an amaz­ing stage pres­ence when we played togeth­er in Jef­fer­son Star­ship; espe­cial­ly in the 1970’s.
She would just walk to the front of the stage and the audi­ence would go wild.
She is also a very tal­ent­ed blues singer…although Grace doesn’t see her­self that way. Lis­ten to her blues licks on “Bet­ter Lying Down” (put my name into YouTube and your will see a black & white film tak­en by “Bill Gra­ham Presents” of Grace & me per­form­ing the song at Win­ter­land in 1975).
I trea­sure the many years we played togeth­er. She most­ly con­cen­trates on her art­work these days…and reg­u­lar­ly shows in gal­leries across the US.
We are still in com­mu­ni­ca­tion with each oth­er and she is gen­er­al­ly regard­ed, along with Janis Joplin as one of the icons of 1960’s, 70’s rock n roll. — with Grace Slick.
