Paul Kantner, Jefferson Airplane Co-Founder & Guitarist, Dies at 74

efferson Airplane guitarist, vocalist and co-founding member Paul Kantner has died. He was 74.

Kantner died Thursday (Jan. 28) of multiple organ failure. He had suffered a heart attack earlier in the week. Kantner’s publicist confirmed the news with the San Francisco Chronicle.

From 1965-1972, Jefferson Airplane was a pioneer in the Bay Area counterculture psychedelic rock scene, first defining what became known as the “San Francisco sound.”

The band’s second album, Surrealistic Pillow, from 1967 hit No. 3 on the Billboard 200 with the help of singles "Somebody to Love" and “White Rabbit." The band performed at the 1960s’ three most famous American rock festivals – Monterey in 1967 and Woodstock and Altamont in 1969.

Kantner is the first of Jefferson Airplane's founding members to have passed away. He was also a founding member of the group’s spinoff band, Jefferson Starship. which took off in 1974.

74 is not that old anymore. Drugs do that to a person. Kills them early.

I love Jefferson Airplane, Grace Slick one of the great female voices, not only Paul Kantner, but Jorma Kaukonen one of the most inventive guitar players.

My favourite Jefferson Airplane album is "After Bathing At Baxters" released in 1967, which begins with the barnstorming "The Ballad of You & Me & Pooneil"

Darling you need to get "Blows Against The Empire", 1970 album release from Paul Kantner and Grace Slick, it's incredibly brilliant. It's actually the first non-Airplane album and is released under name Paul Kantner and Jefferson Starship.

I don't do THE Jefferson Starship it just gets increasingly awful as the years go on.

However THIS = Great:

Blows Against the Empire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Actually I found the entire album for you to hear on You Tube, 45 minutes worth of fantastic stuff:

Are you sure he was not the original founder of Jefferson Starship also?

Funny how the kids back then who couldn't distinguish between entertainment and the endorsement of prolific drug abuse grew up to be ignorant adults who can't distinguish between liberal politics and the endorsement of prolific drug abuse.
