GRACE SLICK: Had Her Fill of Festivals
When Grace Slick retired from music at the end of the ’80s, she said goodbye to attending festivals.
A veteran of such iconic musical gatherings as Monterey Pop, Woodstock and Altamont, she says at 74 she is “too old” for the current crop of festivals like Coachella, which is outside of L.A. where she lives. “They seem to have learned a couple of things because I don’t hear about people getting killed or people having heart attacks, although I’m sure that’ll happen. If you get a lot of people together, the odds are something is going to happen. Chances are people are going to get weird.”
Grace now spends her time painting.
