Paul Kantner: 1941-2016

Paul Kantber, co-founder and leader of the San Francisco legends Jefferson Airplane, has caught his last flight. He was 74 and had been coping with various health issues, before succumbing to organ failure and septic shock. He was an ace rhythm guitarist and political activist, who (co-)wrote classics such as We Can Be Together, Volunteers and Wooden Ships. His finest moment is The Ballad of You and Me and Pooneil, a slice of avant-garde mixed with psychedelic rock.
