If Grace ain't there, they could still recruit Signe Anderson... I heard she performed with Jefferson Starship TNG around 1995 or something... I think she's as good as Grace!

This. And also, Grace seems happy with where doing what she does now. I think the '88/'89 tour ended on a good note for the band, and I think it's best to leave it at that rather than to keep something prolonging for too long.

I had to make some adjustments to the headphones but... just spent a few hours listening/watching the youtube videos of JA songs at Woodstock. Wow, sooooo good even though they had to perform in the morning hours and may have been higher than a kite. That's OK... been there, done that :) I was a 13 year old kid with a pack of Girl Scouts wandering around the outskirts of Woodstock (we kinduv "strayed" off the main hiking trail on a 5-day backpacing trip). I couldn't hear much of the music that was being performed but clearly heard Grace Slick's voice on some of her loooooong notes in the Volunteers song. Will never forget it.

I would love for them to have a reunion tour in select spots around the country (DENVER, please)... but if they've all lost the message of hope and peace and cooperation many decades ago, and could care less about anything but money - then then hell with them... they will have to reconcile someday.

But each of us who loves the JA will always listen to the music and the message. Someday, humanity will get it.

They will play Leicester on July 16 but only for people living or born in Leicester.

They will play Leicester (Braunstone Park) on July 17 but only for people living or born in Leicestershire (excluding Leicester).

I haven't thought about after that, but that's up to them. The party will be indefinite. You will see them if you want to.

Got two heads on my body - I only have one.

Wow. I made this thread 8 years ago and it's still here..... :shock:

perhaps as 2015 is the Airplane's 50th anniversary..... a reunion might be on the cards?

I'm going to see Jefferson Starship this Friday. I'll ask Paul if I get a chance..... :)
