The Worst Of The Jefferson Airplane

Man, if ever there was an appropriate title to an album…

This isn’t it.

I have to admit, some of the songs on “The Worst Of The Jefferson Airplane” do sound a little dated, but I happen to enjoy the combination of rock, folk, psychedelic, and bohemian sounds that it has. As if it were actually a “Best of…” album, it includes all of The Jefferson Airplane’s hits from 1966 to 1969.

Hmm…makes me wonder…maybe the title was all in jest.

Rising to fame from the mid 1960s Jefferson Airplane continued to have hits into the next two decades…sort of.

In the seventies, the members of the Jefferson Airplane had a falling out. Some of the band members decided to continue as Jefferson Airplane. The other members sued them over the use of the use of the name, claiming it wasn’t the same band without them. So the remaining members changed the band’s name to Jefferson Starship.

HA! TAKE THAT!

The eighties saw another falling out with the band. Again, lawsuits were filed to prevent the continued use of the band’s name. And in the “we did it before, we can do it again” spirit, the remaining members of Jefferson Starship changed their name and became simply Starship.

HA! TAKE THAT!

They continue to perform under that name today.
