Jefferson Airplane were a 60's band. one of their greatest hits, and one of my favourite songs, "White Rabbit" more or less personified the Summer of Love, the 60's counterculture and pychedelic rock.



they toured with other such 60's legends as Hendrix, the Doors, Janis Joplin, the Who etc.



singer Grace Slick (and perhaps some other members - not too sure) went on to form Jefferson Starship, who eventually became quite successful 80's band - Starship



neither Jefferson Starship or Starship were ever as good as Jefferson Airplane though, in my opinion....



lyrics to White Rabbit:



one pill makes you larger

and one pill makes you small

and the ones that mother gives you

don't do anything at all

go ask Alice....

when she's ten feet tall



and if you go chasing rabbits

and you know you're going to falla

tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar

has given you the call

call Alice....

when she was just small



when the men on the chessboard

get up and tell you where to go

and you've just had some kind of mushroom

and your mind is moving low

go ask Alice....

i think she'll know



when logic and proportion

have fallen sloppy dead,

and the white knight is talking backwards

and the red queen's "off with her head"

remember what the doormouse said:

"feed your head,

feed your head"



smile


My mind not only wanders, it sometimes leaves completely smile

Posted:Too true Fab - Jefferson/Starship were neither as good as the original lineup. They never had the songs after they changed.



J Airplane, however, were a great band! biggrin



Edit - you should check out Kula Shaker, my all-time favourite band (well, for a few years back there anyway). They're wicked and pretty psychedelic and chilled too. smile

maybe the censors liked it too much and couldn't bring themselves to sully such a fine song with political duress?

And: My name is Vanize, and I listen to Jefferson airplane too (and totally agree that none of the later variations were nearly as good as the original band, but disagree about starship being a "succesful" eighties band, and will only conceed that they were, in fact, an eighties band that managed to make some money - success in some respect I suppose, but not artistically)

Posted:Hehehe! I was listening to White Rabbit today on the train to Uni biggrin Melikes!!! Ohh, and last month, when I was in school, in music class, we were watching a video on 'pop musik' and they brought up the 70s hippie/drug bit in New Orleans... Leaned over to a friend, and said they COULD NOT do that without mentioning Jefferson Airplane. Then two seconds later, it came up, and I was happy.

I am Bobo, and I listen to Jefferson Airplane.

As for Jefferson Starship... We Buit this City on Rock and Roll rocks my socks, but a magizine in Halifax named it the worst song ever! confused What's wrong with people!!! ubbloco

I agree, the 80s was mostly dire. But there was Adam and the Ants, with Stand and Deliver!!

quite successful meaning of course chart success. they did have #1 hits with "you built this city on rock & roll" and that other awful lament "sarah"..... i won't have you thinking i'm a closet starship fan smile

80's music, hmmm...... not really my fort. aside from hardcore & indie stuff most of it was indeed shite. i spent the whole decade listening to hardcore punk & heavy metal. there was nothing else decent to listen to

though in hindsight, and although i didn't appreciate some of them at the time, there were quite a few good 80's acts:

the smiths
the cure (though they may been around late 70's, not too sure)
joy division
the pixies
sonic youth

u2 (not particularly my cup of tea but they did reign for more than a decade (if not longer) as most successful rock band in the world)

ok... i give up now....

Posted:I was going to say Joy Division, but I wasn't sure they counted as the band no longer existed when their only release on the 1980s came out..

The Cure are definitely an 80s band, nice one

Can't believe I didn't think of The Smiths. But then their music transcends the decades... biggrin That was a good save

Posted:yeah, I wasn't going to say Joy Division, as they are really a late 70's phenominon. They did have more than one release in the eighties though - I'm pretty sure the second peel session they did was in 80 for example (or maybe that was the release you meant? I need to brush up on my Joy division history...). but hard to say they were really and eighties band when Ian Curtis died in May 1980...



And speaking of bands that were aroundin the eighties- the Beastie Boys and Helmet (which did release their first album in the eighties if I recall correctly) are coming to berlin next month...



ON THE SAME FRIGGIN DAY!



now there is a tough choice.
