Patti Smith: Jefferson Airplane Ushered Us Through the Summer of Love
Recording Academy

The Jefferson Airplane were my favorite band in 1967 and I still love them today. Grace and Marty are perfect together and the band has a unique rock sound that stands the test of time. I’m still enthralled with the opening to White Rabbit even though I’ve heard this song thousands of times. After Bathing at Baxters and Crown of Creation are my two personal favorite albums by them and Lather, Triad, Today and Saturday Afternoon are just a few of my favorite JA songs. I was sad at Paul’s passing recently and hope that he is playing music in heaven with Jerry.
