Wait a second.... Energy equals the square of mass times the speed of light? How did the theory of relativity come into this? Sorry, did I miss something, because this thread seems to have lost me...

I don't think that The Airplane, QMS, Big Brother & the Holding Company or The Greatful Dead had any "Sound" that was unique enough to limit it to that area. I would lean toward the improvisation angle, but that to, was not local to the San Francisco area.
As for hair - well no one's comparing it to San Francisco Bands. It was a Musical Play for crissake. What it did was inspire a lot of these artist you are talking about. I'm pretty sure the JA members saw it, as they used it as their argument to get "up against the wall mother fucker" on their Volunteers album. So they must have seen it, and obviously Mike Lang and Art Kornfeld saw it, and a lot of other people that probably wouldn't occur to "some" of you.

Like krill to the whale that is the music business, sad because the whole motive of the San Francisco sound was against the commercialism of the music business. It's sickening!

I don't really mind that Marty wanted the Airplane to be a big success. Did it seriously compromise the music? I don't think so. Not until the Seventies and Starship.
I have a problem with this attitude that artists and musicians have to do it practically for free. It's hard work!
