I'm writing from Sweden,so forgive my sometimes poor english.
I need someone to help me with something.
You see back in the 60's, my got some letters from her second cousin. (He's american! with swedish roots though.)
He wrote that he was rock/folk-musican, touring all over US.
But then he suddenly stopped writing her,and she never heard from him again.
But some years later,one of her brothers,who at the time was a rockmusican himself,claimed that their second cousin played in Jefferson Airplane.
I have done some research myself but I have never found out the truth about this.
His name is/was John Peterson or possibly Kenneth Peterson.
Was there ever a John Peterson playing in JA? Or is this just a big lie??

Can someone answer this?
Or maybe he was just a roadie or an engineer or something!
Or maybe he used some other name?

I would be really grateful if someone could help me with this 40 year old mystery!!

From "Got A Revolution":
"...Connecticut-born Beatrice Love Levine. Beatrice's father, Dr. Benjamin Samuel Levine, was the son of a Russian rabbinical scholar, but Ben's wife, the former Vera Faith Haskevitch, had been the family's true powder keg - an anarchist, she had once been imprisoned in Siberia."
