With most of the people I meet when I mention Jorma or Jack I get this blank look in return, until I mention Jefferson Airplane. I think one of Marty's sore points was that Grace tended to get more attention then him, even though he wrote more of the songs and was the true founder of the band. I think it's pointless to debate who was the best, as the band was, quite simply, the sum of it's parts and it had some of the most talented parts there are. The sound of JA was, quite simply, the sound of Marty, Paul, Jorma, Jack, Spencer, and Grace. Any one of these could have made some impressive records of their own, and, in various combinations, did. But the sound of Jefferson Airplane was unique. The Jefferson Starship was no more the Jefferson Airplane than was Hot Tuna. Grace, on her solo albums, was Grace. Paul and Grace (and Davcid Frieberg) were Paul and Grace (and David). While I appreciate your appreciation of Grace, keep in mind that this is the Jefferson Airplane website and folks here tend to like them all...
