One of the most influential bands of the 60’s, Jefferson Airplane (as they were known then) put the San Francisco music scene on the map. Their hits, “Somebody to Love” and “White Rabbit” sold millions of copies and captured the attention of the nation. In 1969, the band’s avid popularity and touring schedule allowed them to perform at two of the largest music festivals of the time; Altamont and Woodstock.
By 1974, the band retooled their sound and personnel and became Jefferson Starship. Their biggest hits would include, “Miracles”, “We Built This City” and “Sara.” In January, 1996, the original Jefferson Airplane was inducted into the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio.
Note: I saw Starship years ago in rural New Mexico - and Grace Slick was still with them. I didn't know Starship took the "Jefferson" back in their name, even though the lineup isn't what it used to be.
