“My art is kind of like rock & roll. I’m not Picasso, so I do a thing that is part rock-n-roll star and part image.” – Grace Slick

In an interview with Variety in 2017, she said millennials are smart but had to learn more about life:

“My generation — and this isn’t bragging, it’s a fact  is the best public school-educated generation before or since. And I see kids saying things on television that are kind of stupid, because they aren’t getting educated. There are 95,000 kids in one class and they’re not paying attention [because] they’d rather be looking at Kim Kardashian’s latest outfit. It’s too bad because, environmentally, you can mold a fairly intelligent person. But if you don’t learn anything what are you gonna do? Look at pictures of Kim Kardashian all your life?”

She was added to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996 as a member of the Jefferson Airplane.
