Grace Slick on Letterman 1983
 
OMG this is the best interview ever. Both are at the top of their game here. Grace is so comfortable in her own skin and is hilarious. Dave goes right "there" asking Grace about her drinking and antics. Funny cause she is 43 here and that was considered old and over the hill for a rocker back then. Also her daughter's name is China which back then seemed odd. It would not be odd today. This is one of the best interviews ever.

She’s a pistol. A highly entertaining interviewee. I don’t think she’s particularly intelligent — unless the acid fried her brain a long time ago. But she’s forthright and non-PC and maintains no tiresome filter. She’s rock and roll.

Her story of being fired from Jefferson Airplane in 1978 (not mentioned here) is quite crazy. The band got tired of her drunken wild antics. The band was touring West Germany in 1978 when Grace was too drunk to take the stage. The crowd started chanting and demanding her appearance. So the next night the band made sure she was on stage however she was stone drunk. She was not singing but insulting the Germans how America kicked their ass during World War II.
Yes, I agree. THIS is rock n roll and an outrageous way to get fired from a band. Compare it to Lindsey. He was fired for dare dancing behind Stevie while she spoke at a lame awards show.
