OMG...this is getting crazy. Another rock legend has died!

 

Paul Kantner, one of the giants of the San Francisco music scene, died Thursday. Mr. Kantner, a founding member of the Jefferson Airplane, was 74 and had suffered a heart attack this week.

His death was confirmed by longtime publicist and friend, Cynthia Bowman, who said he died of multiple organ failure and septic shock.

Mr. Kantner had a string of health problems in recent years, including a heart attack in March.

With Jefferson Airplane, Mr. Kantner pioneered what became known as the San Francisco sound in the mid-1960s, with such hits as “Somebody to Love” and “White Rabbit.”

The Airplane was renowned for thrilling vocal gymnastics by singers Marty Balin, Grace Slick and Mr. Kantner, the psychedelic blues-rock sound developed by guitarist Jorma Kaukonen and bass player Jack Casady and the LSD-spiked, ’60s-era revolutionary fervor of its lyrics.

2016 is turning out to be a year you don't want to be a celebrity in. lol

Sad all these guys are dying. I want to get me a Lemmy Bottle of Jack Daniels.

DK, Im freaking out. There have been FIVE deaths this month!  Yes I know, they are all musicians who lived a life full of sex, drugs and rock-n-roll but this is not normal. January 2016 has taken some of the greatest musical talents ever. Im starting to think John Galt has them.
