    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.

    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.

    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
