Grace Slick Net Worth $20 Million

Grace Slick was raised in Palo Alto, California, and is the daughter of Ivan, a banker, and Virginia Barnet Wing, an actress and a singer. Grace attended Palo Alto Senior High School, before she transferred to the private Castilleja High School. She then became a student at the Finch College in New York, but attended only for a year before switching to the University of Miami, from which she graduated with a degree in Art. In August of 1961 Grace married Gerald “Jerry” Slick, and they moved to San Francisco, where she started working as a model, while Jerry composed music for short films. Along with her husband, Grace decided to form a band – The Great Society – in 1964, and her music career began. The band managed to release a single, “Someone To Love”, before they disbanded. Still, her net worth was established.

In 1966 Grace joined the Jefferson Airplane, as their original singer, Signe Toly Anderson quit the band to take care of her child. While with Jefferson Airplane, her net worth began to increase, and also her popularity grew to some degree. The band recorded six albums with Grace on vocals, before they disbanded, the first being “Surrealistic Pillow” (1967) which proved to be a great accomplishment as it was certified gold by the RIAA. Their next release was “After Bathing At Baxter’s” (1967), but it failed to reach the popularity of the previous release. The band disbanded in 1973, but before that they released five more albums, such as “Volunteers” (1969), “Bark” (1971), and “Long John Silver” (1972).

Grace and guitarist Paul Kantner then formed Jefferson Starship, with which she recorded quite prolifically until 1984, with their albums including “Dragon Fly” (1974), “Red Octopus” (1975), “Spitfire” (1976), “Earth” (1978), “Freedom At Point Zero” (1979), “Modern Times (1981)”, “Winds of Change” (1982), and “Nuclear Furniture” (1984). This period contributed significantly to Grace’s net worth.

In 1985 a new band named simply Starship was formed. In a way it was a follow up to the Jefferson Starship, but it was very different, as the musical style changed, and also the line-up. Grace recorded two albums with the band, before she quit in 1988, but in 1989 she returned and with Kanter recorded the reunion album, and embarked on a tour. However, she again left the band in 1989, but ever since then, she sometimes collaborates with Kantner and Starship while the band holds concerts in Los Angeles.

Besides her successful career as a band member, Grace Slick’s net worth has also increased thanks to her successful solo career; she has released four albums, such as “Manhole” (1974), “Dreams” (1980), and “Software” (1984).

Thanks to her accomplishment in rock’n’roll music, in 1999 Grace Slick was named one of the 100 greatest women of rock’n’roll by VH1; she has also been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Jefferson Airplane in 1996.

After retirement, Grace Slick dedicated herself to visual arts, which firstly began as a hobby, but later progressed, and she became known for her portrayal of “Alice In Wonderland” in 2006, which eventually led to collaboration with Dark Horse Comic, Inc.

Regarding her personal life, Grace Slick has been married twice. Her first husband was Gerald “Jerry” Slick, and second was Skip Johnson. Grace has only one child – a daughter, named China Wing Kantner, with Paul Kantner, her ex-boyfriend. In the media she is known to have been addicted to drugs and alcohol, which lead to a few brushes with the law. Her residence is currently in Malibu, California.

#Quote
1[on the Altamont Free Concert] The vibes were bad. Something was very peculiar, not particularly bad, just peculiar. It was that kind of hazy, abrasive and unsure day. I had expected the loving vibes of Woodstock but that wasn't coming at me. This was a whole different thing.
2[on the Monterey Pop Festival] It was the first time many of the bands have met and saw each other perform, so we were all really marveling at each other. It was just one good group of people after another. And different kinds of music -- from Jimi Hendrix to Ravi Shankar, The Mamas and the Papas to The Who. They had a backstage area where there was food being served 24 hours a day, so everybody was wandering around meeting each other. I was just amazing.
3She's more even - [daughter China Kantner] - I think it jumps generations. You get a screwball in one, and then the next one is straight, then you get a screwball. My grandmother was goofy, my mother was straight.
4But we all do sort of the same thing and that's rearrange what you thought was real, and they remind you of the beauty of very simple things. You forget, because you're so busy going from A to Z, that there's 24 letters in between.
5I was appalled that the San Francisco ethic didn't mushroom and envelope the whole world into this loving community of acid freaks. I was very naive.
6You can do jazz, classical, blues, opera, country until you're 50, but rap and rock-and-roll are really a way for young people to get that anger out. It's silly to perform a song that has no relevance to the present to express feelings that you no longer have.
7I don't miss anything about the 1960s, not really. I did it. It's like asking, "Do you miss the fourth grade?". I loved the fourth grade when I was in it, but I don't want to do it again.
8[late 1960s] We are the people that our parents warned us about.
9Prancing around on stage is not the entire purpose of my life.
10[August 16, 1969, upon walking out on stage at Woodstock] Alright friends, you have seen the heavy groups, now you will see morning maniac music. Believe me, yeah. It's a new dawn. Good morning, people!
