And the Pills You Now Are Taking Are Mainly Geritol

I heard on the radi-adi-o that today is Grace Slick's 80th birthday. In my post-title, I may seem to be ragging on the lady while riffing on my favorite song of hers, but I have nothing but love for the chanteuse who sang White Rabbit:

I like psychedelic rock and I like Lewis Carroll, so White Rabbit hits me on a couple of levels... not to mention Ms Slick's rich alto.

Sure, her later career produced some silly songs, but her legacy as a charismatic front for a band is sound, and at the height of her career, she provided vocals for Sesame Street when it started out as a public television staple:

It's nice to know that she's still a force to be reckoned with as a senior citizen.

Hey, thanks for inspiring me/getting me off my ass. I'll guess you hadn't seen the advert.

Grace has moved on to painting, by the way.
