Marty Balin of Jefferson Airplane, gone at 76.
Very sad news. Marty had a really great soulfull voice that was an integral part of the Jefferson Airplane/ Starship sound
- particularly in some of the shared vocals he sung with Grace Slick. He also added the 'love' song element to these bands,
as opposed to the more psychedelic/political and sc-fi Kantner/Slick songs - they added to the diversity of this great San Franciscan
band. He's probably best known now for the Jefferson Starship's 'Miracles' but my two great Marty moments are two earlier songs:-
The House At Pooneil Corner - Jefferson Airplane (great shared vocals/harmonies with Grace Slick)
Caroline - Jefferson Starship (just a wonderful song/vocal)
R.I.P. With Kantner gone as well it really is the end of an era.
Sometimes life just bounces so you don't get worried at all.
