Hi Everyone, It looks like I'm the first newbie to post here in a while. I'm 51, another relatively old fart, but like alot of others here, the Airplane came into my life after they'd already broken up. My old girlfriend and I watched an anti-drug movie in 1980 called "Go Ask Alice" (her choice for the film, but I'm glad we watched it in retrospect!). Needless to say, White Rabbit was played in the movie. I was mesmerized with Grace's voice (as well as her looks once I saw the "Surrealistic Pillow" album). I went to our neighborhood record store the next day (the "Wherehouse" in Granada Hills, California and looked for anything by Jefferson Airplane. I only found "After Bathing at Baxter's" (but what a find-definetely my favorite JA album) and a brand new Jefferson Starship album (Modern Times-I love Stairway to Cleveland from that album!). Baxter's was awesome. I also totally dug the Starship album. I bought the rest of the Airplane's catalog shortly thereafter, as well as Starship stuff and Grace solo (but nothing compares to "classic" airplane IMO). Being that I and most of my friends were born in the late '50's and early '60's, my taste in "hippie music" was weird to some of them, but I didn't care. I still liked Van Halen just fine, thank you very much, but there was always something about Jefferson Airplane that just totally turned me on. In the old days I attributed all that to Grace. But there nothing finer than listening to Jacks thundering bass and Jorma's screeching guitar interplay. God, I love this band! Saw JS in 1982 (the Winds of Change tour) where they played Somebody to Love, White Rabbit and Volunteers as an encore. saw the Airplane reunion tour 3 times in 1989. Saw JS again this past summer at the "Heroes of Woodstock" tour. Well, I've rambled on enough. Glad to be a new member!
