ohhh.... so the other day i was listening to the radio and they were doing a countdown of the worst songs of all time. inevitable "We Built This City" came in at number one. i tend to disagree -- there's been far worse songs (Sara for example -- but that's neither here nor there
anyway, after the song was over, the DJ said something like "That was We Built This City, by Jefferson Starship. Or Jefferson Airplane. As if it matters".
it was one of those moments where you just want to throw your radio out the window. first of all, that's STARSHIP... not Jefferson Starship, and second of all, YES it matters. Jefferson Airplane was a creative and innovational psychedelic rock band, Jefferson Starship was a mediocre albeit tolerable continuation of what Jefferson Airplane started, and Starship... Starship was pre-chewed watered-down '80s pop schlock with one member (Grace Slick -- who wasn't even a founder of Airplane) the same as our beloved Jefferson Airplane, and even she was playing a different role in the band.
so basically what that Jefferson Airhead of a DJ had said was something to the effect of "That was Nirvana. Or The Foo Fighters. As if it matters".
anyway, "crap" vote from me!
