George and Julia's Vegan Underground

Vegans That Rock!

  

It’s Friday and it’s time to meet another one of the “Vegans That Rock.”  She constructed a metro area using the power of her starship music.   A living Alice in Wonderland, always looking for somebody to love, this vegan was one of the original 60’s bad girls.  David Crosby called her the Chrome Nun but most people know her as Grace Slick.  As singer and lyricist for Jefferson Airplane and other future reincarnations, the acid queen enjoyed a life of excess but not often one of animal cruelty.  Whether she was sleeping with Jim Morrison, trying to slip Nixon some acid or partying it up with former pal Janis Joplin, Grace made her own rules.  How she survived the 60’s, nobody knows for sure but most agree “feeding her head” with animal-free vittles played a big part.

“It takes a little work to be a vegan, but now it’s really possible to have tasty stuff and it’s better for you,” says Slick. “I say the best test is go as far as you can and see how you feel. Personally, I feel great.” 

Her Woodstock days are long gone but this living rock superstar now enjoys a simple life of eating plants and painting psychadelic influenced art.   This vegan legend helped define an era that she can barely remember.  Grace, we salute you because you are one groovy vegan that truly rocks!!!

“I wasn’t always a vegan, I didn’t care about animals one way or the other, they were part of the scenery,” says Slick. “Until one day on tour, I saw a baby panda. I thought that it was the most fabulous animal in the world and made a different kind of connection. I began to understand how animals were part of the greater scheme and I stopped eating them.”
