Jefferson Airplane Co-Founder Marty Balin Dead at 76 – Rolling Stone
From everything I've ever read about Balin, he was a genuinely nice guy. Also, his vocal performance on Miracles was amazing. R.I.P. Marty.
Was about to post this. He reportedly had an open door policy to young Musicians who needed advice
Oh, that's a tough one. Back in the day, I loved this band. Jefferson Airplane, among others, were the background music for a lot of good times.
He also had this soft rock hit, which I was reminded of just a couple years ago listening to one of the Big 80s countdowns on Sirius:
and sang lead on this Jefferson Starship hit:
Oh my, I never made the connection that he sang "Hearts" - great 80's tune.
Loved both those songs a ton.
I was watching a movie and in it Kristen Wiig and her gay brother Bill Hader were lip syncing "Nothing's gonna stop us now" to each other. It was pretty funny.
Later they had a fight and she referred to his previous suicide attempt by saying "You didn't cut deep enough". OMG
