Bill Medlock - JA drummer

Postby woody on Sun Jan 29, 2006 4:57 am

We finished our gig tonight in St. Louis, and I was approached by a dude named Bill Medlock--Mid fifties--identifing himself as a former drummer in Jefferson Airplane. Can anyone here confirm or disprove this ??? I had never heard of him before.

Thanks for the help--

Dave

Doesn't ring any bells, for me. He's certainly not on any album, and the original drummer was Jerry Peloquin. Perhaps he sat in with them somewhere during their later years, after Joey left. Googling him doesn't turn up anything relevant.

Hey, I over-dubbed my guitar onto the live version of "Starship" from the re-released "Blows.." CD. Does this mean that I can claim to have played guitar with the Airplane :?: :?: :roll:

Cheers,
Dave

Well, that was kind of my point, although I don't think it turned out too bad...

I reckon you qualify for some royalties Dave. Contact Mr Katz and he'll sort you out a cheque. :wink: :D

He said he emailed it to me, but I think my spam filter must have caught it and shredded it. :cry: :cry: :cry:
