Grace Slick at seventy.

Someone once wrote that Jefferson Starship's Red Octopus was "proof positive that rockers can age gracefully." This photo (thanks again to Michael Simmons) of Grace Slick at seventy bears out that statement. Below is a YouTube clip of Starship doing "Fast Buck Freddie", the opening cut on Octopus, accompanied by a slideshow of photos of a younger, but not necessarily prettier, Grace (thanks to liquidgee13 for the clip):


  1. She sure is beautiful! Great post, thanks for that.

    I feel positively young!

  2. Oh, and by the way - USF Graduation is next week... and my daughter is graduating with a BFA on Saturday.

    Summa Cum Laude - we couldn't be prouder!

    She's applying to MFA programs in Florida and also thinking of taking her LSAT. She has a good friend at Harvard Law.

    Ha. How about that?

    (and "skilgrad" is my word verification!!)
