Grace Slick knows she's not the world's greatest artist.
"I've had reviewers on my voice saying she couldn't sing her way out of a paper bag, which is probably true," Slick says. "But people bought the records."
"Now I can't draw my way into the Metropolitan Museum. That's probably true. But people but the (expletive deleted) paintings. So something connects to a large enough amount of people that I can continue to fen my face."
As you can see, a decade away from the rock 'n' roll world hasn't mellowed the former lead singer of Jefferson Airplane and Starship.
Slick knew she had artistic ability at age 3, when she'd drawn an angel and her parents would make it into that year's Christmas card. But, a 30-plus year music career proved distracting.
