Fleetwood Mac Are Too Old To Rock Says Grace Slick
And she's taken a pot-shot at her own later career, saying she should have left Starship a decade before she finally did. She retired in 1989, aged 50, and she's frequently argued that musicians who choose to perform rock and rap should bow out at a similar age.
Now Slick tells WENN: "There's something about old people singing rock'n'roll lyrics that bothers me - it just doesn't match. I saw a film of Fleetwood Mac doing something, and I was okay as long as I didn't look at them. I couldn't look at them. They sounded great, and if I looked away and imagined young people singing I was okay with it."
She continues: "The only so-called old people I've seen that I thought 'that still works' is the Rolling Stones. They did a thing that was filmed in a park in Great Britain, and the way they acted, the way they sang, the musicianship, just worked really well." She goes on to slam her former band Starship, read that here.
