Style Icons: Female »Grace Slick

Grace SlickIf there is one female icon of the 1960s to emulate it's Miss Grace. Sure, there are a few drunken performances to mar her past, but who in the world of rock hasn't had one of those? Well, at least in the old days, when rock was still dirty. These days, pop star Britney Spears is more raucous than the rock stars–even Velvet Revolver seems tame, and all of them should be dead by now. And let's not forge that other blemish on her resume: the auspicious evolution from Airplane to Starship that gave jukeboxes across the globe the one song that will make you no friends and many enemies if you play it, We Built This City.

But just look at the woman–she was a fox. And still is, even though she refers to herself as an old fart. A hot old fart that doesn't feel the need to act like a seventeen year old. “Rock and rollers over the age of 50 look stupid and should retire” she once said. Retired or no, who can forget that contralto voice laced with sex, drugs, and, well you know. I used her lovely face for a poster years ago, it's a face that lured Jim Morrison into the sack.
