Here's a preview to wet your whistle:
The Jefferson Airplane: Dated Jorma Kaukonen for a very short while...Lived on the corner of Fell and Cole in the Haight with Marty Balin and Jack Cassidy and his girlfriend Ginger Jackson (who became one of my best friends for life)...At the time I thought I was going to replace Signe Anderson as their singer but...they found Grace Slick and that was that...No blame...she was much more ready than I to make them a big success...and she did...
David Crosby: Kind to let me stay in the downstairs apartment in his house in Beverly Glenn. It was there I wrote "Windy" and then got together with Jorma's brother Peter Kaukonen after which we set about forming our band Petrus.
