American rock band the Great Society (or spelled as The Great! Society!!) was formed in San Francisco, California, the United States in 1965. The band was a shot-lived one and quickly disbanded in 1966. The band is known as the first group of Grace Slick, a former model who turned into the singer. She, her then-husband Jerry Slick and his brother Darby Slick were highly inspired by the Beatles and decided to create their own rock band. The original line-up composed of Grace Slick (vocals), Jerry Slick on drums, Darby Slick on guitar, David Miner on vocals and guitar, Bard DuPont on bass, and Peter Vandergelder on saxophone. The band released the single "Someone to Love" (b/w "Free Advice") and began gaining some popularity opening for Jefferson Airplane. Columbia Records offered the band a contract, but Grace left the band and went to join Jefferson Airplane.
