Jefferson Airplane and Grace Slick – White Rabbit – Live at Woodstock, 1969.

Transport yourself back to the iconic Woodstock festival of 1969, where the air was filled with the spirit of change and music was the language of a generation. In the midst of that historic gathering, Jefferson Airplane, led by the mesmerizing Grace Slick, delivered a performance that still sends shivers down the spine.

The moment the haunting chords of ‘White Rabbit’ began to reverberate through the crowd, you could feel the electricity in the air. Grace Slick’s ethereal voice took us on a journey through the looking glass, as if time itself had paused. Her magnetic presence and charisma were undeniable, casting a spell over everyone in attendance.

The performance was not just a musical experience; it was a glimpse into an era defined by rebellion, peace, and a longing for a world that could be.

As the crowd swayed in unison, it was clear that this was more than just a song; it was an anthem for a generation.

Watching this performance today is like stepping back into a dream, a dream we still yearn to relive.

One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don’t do anything at all
Go ask Alice
When she’s ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you’re going to fall
Tell ’em a hookah-smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call
Call Alice
When she was just small

When the men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you’ve just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low
Go ask Alice
I think she’ll know

When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen’s off with her head
Remember what the dormouse said
Feed your head
Feed your head

Songwriters: Grace Wing Slick
