Born: 30 October 1939, Evanston, Illinois

Born Grace Barnett Wing, her family lived in the Chicago area, Los Angeles, and San Francisco before settling at Palo Alto. She attended Palo Alto Senior High School, transferred to Castilleja High School, attended Finch College (New York) and the University of Miami at Coral Gables Florida. She modeled for I. Magnin before deciding that rock and roll paid better and was more fun. With first husband Gerald Slick she started The Great Society in 1965, the following year she joined Jefferson Airplane, bringing two of her songs with her: "White Rabbit" and "Somebody to Love". When Jefferson Airplane broke up, she produced four solo albums and joined some of her former band mates to create Jefferson Starship. She held the record for oldest female vocalist with a #1 song in the charts twice, with "We Built This City" in 1985 and "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" in 1987, a record that lasted twelve years. After retiring from music she started drawing and painting, her agent urged her to paint portraits of some of her rock contemporaries for her autobiography. Her work is shown in numerous US galleries and she makes up to 30 appearances a year at art shows.
