Somebody To Love is also a great song. I used to like Miracles a lot, too, from the first Jefferson Starship album.

Gracie Slick struck me as an exemplar of a common lie of the 1960s.

Everyone claimed that they were so different from what had gone before. The drugs young people took were for enlightenment. They didn't need to booze themselves up like their parents.

Slick was, apparently, going to enlighten the establishment by putting LSD into the punch at a school reunion hosted by Tricia Nixon at the White House. Then she turned out to be an alcoholic herself.

And she stayed in the Airplane just to make money.
