She was the original "great rock diva", the lead singer of Jefferson Airplane who stood at the forefront of the sixties and seventies counterculture and belted out classics like "White Rabbit" and "Somebody to Love". Now, in her own inimitable voice, Grace Slick offers a revealing self-portrait of the complex woman behind the rock-outlaw image, and delivers a behind-the-scenes, no-holds-barred view of rock's grandest stages. Wildly funny, candid, and evocative, SOMEBODY TO LOVE? tells what it was really like during, and after, the Summer of Love -- and how one remarkable woman survived it all.

Summary: She has been called rock and roll's original female outlaw, as famous for her bad behavior as for her haunting singing voice. From "White Rabbit" and "Somebody to Love" to "Sarah" and "Miracles", the songs she performed became the anthems of a generation. Whether describing her antics at the White House with Abbie Hoffman or the unforgettable experience that was Woodstock, Slick's recollections have the same rich imagery found in her lyrics. In this provocative narrative, readers will discover the many sides of Grace Slick: as artistic pioneer, she records songs with Jerry Garcia and David Crosby; as practitioner of freedom and rebellion, she beds Jim Morrison and gets arrested for DUI on three separate occasions -- without actually being in a car; and as a loving mother to actress China Kantner, she tries to balance casual friendship with parental wisdom. Through the unflinching eye of a survivor, this no-holds-barred memoir brings to life the people and spirit that defined a quarter-century of American pop culture.
