Have a Nice Trip Paul
Another great protagonist of classic/psychedelic rock passed away: singer, musician, psychonaut and co-founder of the Jefferson Airplane (1965) and Jefferson Starship (1991) Paul Kantner died yesterday at 74 of multiple organ failure and septic shock.
The musician had been in ill health in most recent years and suffered a sroke in 2015.
Paul and his band(s) will stay in (psychedelic) music history for ever, with legendary albums like "Surrealistic Pillow" (1967), "Volunteers" ('69) or "Baron Von Tollbooth and the Chrome Nun" ('73) and "consciousness expanding" hymns like the beautiful "Have You Seen the Stars Tonight"....
Rest in Peace, brother....
