:!: On This Day in Airplane History :!:

On the 22nd September 1972, 37 years ago, JA played its last concert until 1989, at Winterland.It was also their last performance at the venue.

The band was;
Grace Slick - Lead Vocals
Paul Kantner - Rhythm Guitar, Vocals
Jorma Kaukonen - Lead Guitar, Vocals
Jack Casady - Bass guitar
Papa John Creach - Violin, Vocals
David Frieberg - Vocals, guitar
John Barbata - Drums

That was the official line-up, but for the encore, Marty Balin came back for lead vocals on 'You Wear Your Dresses Too Short', his first performance with the Airplane in two years.

The setlist was;
Set 1-
1.Somebody to Love
2.Twilight Double Leader
3.Wooden Ships
4.Milk Train
5.Blind John
6.Come Back Baby
7.The Son of Jesus
8.Long John Silver
9.When The Earth Moves Again
10.Papa Johns Down-Home Blues
11.Eat Starch Mom

Set 2-
1.Johns Other
2.Trial By Fire
3.Lawman
4.Have You Seen The Saucers?
5.Aeire(Gang of Eagles)
6.Feel So Good
7.Crown of Creation
8.Walking The Tou Tou
9.Diana/Volunteers
10.You Wear Your Dresses Too Short(Encore with Marty)

It problably looked something like this;

Other evens;

JA played its third ever show at the Matrix, 22nd September 1965.Lightning Hopkins opened, it was a Wednesday.
They recorded 'Rejoyce', at RCA Studio A in Hollywood, for After Bathing At Baxters, on the 22nd September 1967.It was a Friday.
Theres a possibility they returned to the U.S from the first European tour around this time in 1968.There was a gap between their last show in Europe on the 20th and their return appearance in the U.S on the 28th, which was playing Ed Sullivan.

And that was, On This Day in Airplane History

Oh...how i would kill for a vinyl copy of Winterland.

I was able to dig this up for 21/11-

21st November 1966 they recorded 'In The Morning', which would have gone on Surrealistic Pillow.Dont believe ive heard it, but i problably have.I think its on the SP remaster.

21st November 1968 they played the Grande Ballroom, and it was the first time the played.They did again on the 24th, the last time they played.I believe the MC5 may have opened, i know they opened for JA once, and played the Grande alot so it works out that this was the show.Although an odd mix, if youre a fan of both bands like me, it would be a great show to be at...ah, the '60s.

21st November 1970 they played Pennsylvania State University.Thats all i could find for 21/11 for JA, but i know other things have happened for other bands.

Thank you! I feel like my birthday has meaning now.....

I've gone through a Beatles day-by-day book to find that between 1960-1989, NOTHING at all happened on my birthday. Isn't that kinda sad?

Ah its ok.Mine is on the 8th August, and not that much happened for my favourite bands on that day(that i know of).The biggest thing in history i know of was this battle in World War One, which was called the "Black Day for the German Army", which, having been a history buff, is fun to say i was born on the particular day pre-nazi bastards got their asses kicked badly.Yay! :D
