RIP Paul Kantner

Oh man....!!!!!!!!!

Some of my fondest memories (OK, I can hear the line already - "If you can remember it, you weren't really there") were listening the Jefferson Airplane and then Jefferson Starship.

RIP Paul.....

Marty Balin Remembers Paul Kantner: 'He and I Opened New Worlds'


Marty Balin, former vocalist of psychedelic rock pioneers Jefferson Airplane, has issued a funny, poignant statement about band mate Paul Kantner, who died Thursday at age 74. "So many memories rushing through my mind now. So many moments that he and I opened new worlds," Balin wrote on Facebook, accompanied by a vintage picture of the two musicians.

"He was the first guy I picked for the band, and he was the first guy who taught me how to roll a joint. And although I know he liked to play the devil's advocate, I am sure he has earned his wings now. Sai Ram 'Go with God.'"

Kantner died Thursday of multiple organ failure and septic shock after suffering a heart attack earlier in the week. The Jefferson Airplane guitarist/co-founder had been battling health problems in recent years and was struck with a previous heart attack in March 2015.
