The preceding video clip comes from a Toronto show in the mid-1960s
The Doors - Jefferson Airplane - and a man from U.N.C.L.E. too? What did Toronto do to deserve so much all at once back then? *LOL* That guy in the first 8 seconds is Noel Harrison, the regular partner for Stefanie Powers when she was the Girl From U.N.C.L.E. - a role he won after being noticed by the producer's wife on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson! A role which garnered Noel a temporary cult following too... (No - it wasn't just the producer's wife following him around!) Noel is also the son of Rex Harrison and the proud father of an actress who proved to be daring in her choice of roles - Cathryn Harrison. Two other artistic kids complete the Harrison legacy - no relation to "uncle" George, either!
But back to Grace Slick's singing - which is what we get on that video clip (depending whetehr it is "still available" or "no longer available" - of course!) One fan said, on YouTube, that such songs as WHITE RABBIT here and most everything The Doors dished out came from their being on edge, stressed out and anxious over the threat of being nuked, the Cold War, Vietnam, the Russians and so on... No artists could produce such songs today, said the fan... HA! Aren't we just as stressed out today as they were back then? I definitely feel like I am! And the "anti-time traveling back to the Sixties" comment that came with that bit of context from the same fan was nonsensical at best - not only because time travel is impossible (alas!) but mostly because anyone with a brain and two cents' worth of logic would FOR IT 100%! What is not to love - the swinging sixties, free LSD, free love... LOL Plus - you get GRACE SLICK in her prime! WOW! I'd trade in A DOZEN LINDSAY LOHANs and BRITNEY SPEARSes for ONE GRACE SLICK! Even if the latter saw Alice In Wonderland being ten feet tall and all... *LOL*
