Weekend Tribute Song - R.I.P. Paul Kantner

Sad news today that Paul Kantner, founding member of the iconic San Francisco band Jefferson Airplane passed away yesterday at the too- young age of 74 following a heart attack days earlier.  Kantner, along with Grace Slick, Marty Balin, Jorma Kaukonen, Jack Casady and Spencer Dryden, formed the most popular lineup of the band in the mid- to late-60's.*  Here's a song he co-wrote with Balin, and one of our favorites, "Today."  Everlasting soft breezes and incense. R.I.P.

* In a strange twist, the original singer for the Airplane, Signe Toly Anderson, passed away yesterday also.
