JA members: your favourite one

Anything goes here folks... just keep it somewhat clean ;)

I respect and like all of them but I have to choose Marty Balin for his later known alienation and discrimination against the band. Just makes him stand out, similar to how Grace Slick stood out from the band expect in a very different way.

Grace Slick, because she has the best voice and her book was hilarious! And she wrote some of the best songs: "Somebody to Love", "Rejoyce" and "Two Heads", to name a few.

I have to say Grace is my favorite
Her intro to Volunteers at Woodstock is classic!
You've seen the heavy groups.................Now it's time for some morning maniac music!
It's a new dawn................yeah
If you invite abuse, it's impolite not to accept it

It's not easy to choose, you need them together!
-Grace (she's got the best voice I've ever heard)
-Paul (he's a very talented songwriter)
-Marty (I like his voice and he is the founder member of the band 8) )
-Jorma (I like blues and he's good at in it, he's also a fantastic guitar player)

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.

Cheers,
Dave



Yeah man, I APPROVE! I 'feel' sweet baby Gracie just like you do man.
Used to "play around some" with an aussie chick at high school "way-back-when" who had the Gracie looks, but not her vox or the cool (naturally!!).
I do believe that if Grace Slick ever played guitar like she 'played' her voice, well honestly Jorma might as well have gone home (joking!).

Keep on rockin'!!!!

Australia in the 60's

Oh yeah, the most powerful of all drugs, teenage hormones.

Your posts beg the question: "What was going on down-under in the 60's?" I'm a big fan of Midnight Oil and Geoff Achison, but I can't remember hearing of anyone other than the BeeGees coming out of Australia in the 60's. Any obscure bands from the time that you can turn us on to?

Cheers,
Dave

Yeah right!!! Must've been the hormones made me do it hhahahah!!
Anyway, my generation is more the early '70s really, the high school period......music was existing from the strictly psych-folk scene and bands were beginning to turn up their amps (this was happening all over the globe!), in other words, rock was becoming harder 'n' harder and more aggressive.

back soon

Well the person who tried to hold it together and was always the one who
tried to push it the 'Furthest out' - deserves my 'favourite' award simply
for those 2 reasons. Paul.
But its the usual 'The sum of the individuals is less than the greater group'
thing - How can you not love them all for all different reasons?

But by heck - show me a more beautiful, interesting woman than Grace
- if you can! But,er,slightly tough to get a long with, hahaha...still I'da
given it my best shot...

For sheer musisianship, Jack 'n'Jorma are without peers.

Jack Casady, best bass player ever
If you were a cloud and you sailed up there,
You sail on water as blue as air;
You'd see me here in the fields and say,
"Doesn't the sky look green today?"

Can't argue with that. Just came from the FPR where, in addition to teaching this past weekend, Jorma and Jack put on an incredible concert performance. Was able to watch Jack from about 8 feet away and the man is absolutely ithe best!
