Information of Starship
Jefferson Airplane was an American rock band from San Francisco, a pioneer of the psychedelic rock movement.
The Airplane was part of the psychedelic rock scene that developed in San Francisco in the mid-1960s. They were the first San Francisco group to perform at a dance concert – the 'happening' at the Longshoremen's Hall in October 1965 – and were the first to sign a contract with a major record label, the first to appear on American national television, the first to score hit records and the first to tour the US East Coast and Europe.
Throughout the late 1960s Jefferson Airplane was one of the most sought-after (and highly-paid) concert acts in the world. Their records sold in great quantities, and they scored two US Top 10 hit singles and a string of Top 20 albums. Their 1967 LP Surrealistic Pillow is still widely regarded as one of the key recordings of the Summer of Love.
Successor bands to Jefferson Airplane include Jefferson Starship and Starship while spinoffs include Hot Tuna and KBC Band. Jefferson Airplane was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.
