The Airplane, Anyone Remember Them?

In loyalty to their kind
They cannot tolerate our minds.
In loyalty to our kind
We cannot tolerate their obstruction.


  1. How did a band so awesome as Jefferson Airplane spawn such a Dogband like Jefferson Starship?

  2. Right you are, Weer'd. I've always thought the same thing.

    What I love about the great music of the 60s and 70s, is that it worked equally well for each subsequent generation. It's still working.

  3. Gadfrey, I saw the Airplane in Detroit at The Grande in the day...
    I saw the early incarnation of the Starship when they still had Jorma, Jack and Papa John Creach playing violin.
    Then the 70's, the 80's and people had to do some pretty bizarre things to survive in the business.

    Interesting evolution, from a primarily folk based outfit.....
    The second album (the first with Grace) is one of the all time classics....
