For some of us born at a certain time in an era of “peace love and tie-dye"The Jefferson Airplane holds a Promethean place in our hearts. The originators of the San Francisco sound along with The Dead, Big Brother and Janis, and Santana, Grace Slick and Paul Kantner wrote huge complex songs with searing guitar rips and smoking bass line. Paul Kantner passed yesterday on San Fran where he was from. It’s been a downer of a January for the rock world. Bless his Pointy little Head.

R.I.P. Paul Kantner! He was a guitarist, songwriter, vocalist and co-founder of both Jefferson Airplane and Jefferson Starship. Jefferson Airplane, in my opinion, was one of the most important bands of the 1960s, especially in psychedelic rock. They are also one of my favorite bands. Their music helped define the culture of the decade. Jefferson Airplane’s album Surrealistic Pillow is a musical masterpiece and I encourage everyone to give it a listen. It features two of the band’s most recognizable hits, “Somebody to Love” and “White Rabbit,” as well as my favorite Jefferson Airplane song, “Today,” which was written by Kantner. Here is a picture of him with the great Grace Slick and their daughter, China.

Although, I didn’t really know him, my brothers and I did have the pleasure of meeting him and the other #bandmembers while waiting at #DTW #Northwest’s #airport terminal back in #1983 on #Saturday, #August13th.

My brother Vito got a #kissonthecheek from #GraceSlick and I (Italia) got her #autograph.

The recent passing of Paul Kantner from Jefferson Airplane reminded me of something quite personal. Years ago my cousin and godfather was a close friend of Paul and the other members of the band. This is not vicarious name dropping but something intimately close to my heart. Roy Buckman was also my father figure in lieu of one that was rarely around. Roy was a musician, actor and master woodworker who actually crafted and customized furniture and seating to the various members of the band in his relationship with them over the years in San Francisco and Bolinas California. As a child it was not uncommon to visit Roy at the JA home as well as that of other close friends in the 60s community. The images attached are samples of his work, which often relied on keeping the natural form of the wood as much as possible. Difficult to see but in one of the images he very subtly signed his work using a kind of pointillism in the wood and it only will read “Roy 75” 75 represented the year of the piece, a large redwood burl commissioned by my mother with only one demand: that no metal be used anywhere in the table. If anyone anywhere out there surviving that era has any of Roy’s work I would love to see it posted or shared and maybe create a digital museum series of his work. Sadly we know that some of the material was destroyed sometime during the 1980s. Rest in peace Paul Kantner. #JeffersonAirplane #PaulKantner ##paulkantnertakesoff #GraceSlick #MartyBalin #Sunfighter #ALookAtTheWood ##RoyBuckman #BolinasCalifornia #1960s #Woodworking.
