Paul Kanter founded Jefferson Airplane in 1965. The Airplane were the biggest rock group in America during the 1960s and the first San Francisco band to sign a major record deal, paving the way for other legends like Grateful Dead & Janis Joplin. They headlined the original Woodstock Festival in 1969 and like The Beatles with whom they are critically compared, lasted a mere 7 years ... though their influence and impact on rock music continues well into the 21st century. In 1974 Mr. Kanter created Jefferson Starship and again enjoyed chart-topping success.
Paul, & Jefferson Airplane were inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1996, the same year as Pink Floyd. Jefferson Starship, the name created by Paul for his 1971 solo debut “Blows Against The Empire” recording, has endured 40 years as one of rock's most legendary bands. That recording was the first and only to ever be nominated for literary science fiction’s Hugo Award … a stellar achievement.
Co-founder David Freiberg also started the legendary Quicksilver Messenger Service, the Fillmore era San Francisco band who often shared the bill with The Dead & The Airplane. David is a world famous singer, producer, composer and multi-instrumentalist. He was also a member of Jefferson Airplane, and co-wrote one of Jefferson Starship's all-time biggest hits, “Jane” – which he performs.
Donny Baldwin became part of the San Francisco music scene in the early 70s growing, up there. From 1973 to 1978 Donny was with the "Elvin Bishop" Band. During this time he toured and recorded six albums, which included the #1 hit single, "Fooled Around and Fell In Love". From 1981 to 1989, Donny was a member of Jefferson Starship. In January 1994, he joined the JERRY GARCIA BAND. He has toured, recorded and played with Artista such as Kenny Loggins, Pablo Cruise, Chuck Berry, Van Morrison, Ronnie Montrose, Gregg Allman, Heart, Lydia Pense & Cold Blood, 38 Special And Eddie Money.
