Classic album defined hippy era

Jefferson Starship

For many the music of the late sixties represents the golden age of rock ‘n’ roll – a period of creativity and innovation that has yet to be repeated.
British musical legends like the Beatles and the Rolling Stones were at the forefront, along with acclaimed US artists like The Doors, the Byrds,
Jimi Hendrix, The Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane.
Jefferson Airplane, or Jefferson Starship as they later became, have stood the test of time and one of their finest musical moments, the seminal psychedelic album Surrealistic Pillow, will be recreated in the Midlands when they visit The Robin 2 in Bilston and Artrix in Bromsgrove next week.
Founder member and guitarist Paul Kantner is still the band’s driving force, though the line-up has evolved over the years and now includes Jefferson Starship co-founder, singer and multi-instrumentalist David Freiberg, keyboard player Chris Smith, vocalist Cath Richardson, guitarist Jude Gold and drummer Richard Newman.

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
