JA members: your favourite one

Which is your favourite JA member? And why?
Mine is Jorma Kaukonen because he is a brilliant guitarist and he likes blues like me.

Jorma Kaukonen is my favorite living guitarist, and holds a place in my heart that is only shared with the late great Jerry Garcia.
Jack Cassady is the backbone to my most favorite music.
I simply love Grace Slick! She has the best voice. I hope she is proud of her music, it is really important to me.
Papa John Creech blew the roof off every time I ever saw him!
Spencer rocks!

I'm going to go with Paul. I like Jorma, Jack and Grace quite a bit also. But for me (as a musician) songwritings' very important and it seems he did most of that (especially on my favorite album, "After Bathing...").This may sound rather odd, but one of my favorite things or sounds in music is rhythm guitar.
P. S. I'm going to ignore all of the starship crap he did.

It's changed over the years...

As a horny teenager, Grace first captured my eyes and ears, and a couple of other organs as well...

Once I started listening to them I was knocked out by Paul's songwriting, and his sort of off-key singing.

I didn't really appreciate Jorma until Hot Tuna, where he pretty much blew me away...

Marty, well, in my dreams I can't sing like that...

After not really listening to them for several years I started up again about three years ago. What stands out now is Jack's bass. Of all the people in the band, if I had to pick one person as being essential to the JA sound I'd say it's Jack. He played bass like nobody else did then, and few do now. I noticed in the DVD that Grace at one point says that the first thing she'd listen for when they'd start playing was Jack's bass.

They wouldn't have worked by themselves! they needed each other to totally release themselves. Can't pick a favourite! take out one and the whole system will collapse.

Jack because I'm a bass player. Paul is pretty close for me though because his songs are amazing and his harmonies are really unique and just plain cool. I really want to meet Paul or email him.

It's Paul... the drawings of him that Grace did with the marijuana hair still delight me. I've grown older and more cynical, but I can still clearly remember the days when I thought Paul Kantner was a prophet. I think of myself the summer after 8th grade, buying "Blows Against the Empire" and listening to it every day for three straight months. How can music be this GOOD, I thought!

Either Jack because of his excellent bass work, or Paul because of his songwriting in the Airplane days.
