As Grace once said "If you put 4 goats and 1 pig together,everyone is gonna look at the pig" The fact that she was absolutely stunning to look at probably didnt help, still, Marty Balin was pretty beautiful himself.
If Marty Balin resented the fact that she was there then that is pretty sad, I dont think they would have been so well regarded and remembered if they had never had Grace Slick as lead vocallist. I mean Grace looked great,had an attitude a mile wide, she wrote some of their most enduring songs and she had that one-off amazing voice. A hard package to compete with really.

His comments about her wanting him all along was classic. Did it ever occur to Marty that maybe Grace didn't want him? He really comes across as a bitter, whiny brat in the Got A Revolution book and his venom for Grace is nothing but pure jealousy. It's almost like it kills him to say anything good about her.
As for his assumption that Grace wanted him all along over anyone in the band... I don't buy it.
