JEFFERSON AIRPLANE: DAVID FREIBERG, MARTY BALIN, and PAUL KANTNER Pick guard signed by two founding members of Jefferson Airplane and a third member who performed with both Airplane and Jefferson Starship. Pick Guard signed: "David Freiberg/[illegible]", "Marty Balin" and "Paul Kantner". White plastic guitar pick guard, approximately 11x9 overall. Singer, songwriter and guitarist MARTY BALIN (1942-2018) founded Jefferson Airplane in San Francisco in the summer of 1965. After opening a nightclub, the Matrix, he met folk musician PAUL KANTNER (1941-2016) at another club and the two began recruiting other musicians to form a house band for the Matrix. Kantner had previously worked in a folk duo with DAVID FREIBERG (b. 1938), who later joined Quicksilver Messenger Service,. Freiberg would join Airplane in the summer of 1972, on a tour to promote their Long John Silver album (the tour took place a year after lead vocalist Grace Slick had been injured in an automobile accident). Freiberg's first tour included a free concert in New York City's Central Park that was attended by more than 50,000 fans. Slick and Kantner, who had a relationship - and a daughter - together, but never married, then created Jefferson Starship, an offshoot of Airplane. Balin, who had left Airplane in 1971, returned to Starship from 1975-1978, contributing such songs as "Miracles", "With Your Love" and "Count on Me" to the group's success. In 1985, Kantner reunited with Balin (along with Jack Casady) to form the KBC Band. Kantner and Balin later became leaders of a revived Jefferson Starship, which was joined by Frieberg on vocals, bass and keyboards in 2005. In addition to his work with the Jefferson groups and other bands, soulful tenor Balin, who was affectionately known to his fans as "God", had a successful solo career, including a Top Ten hit, "Hearts", in 1981 and the release of several albums. Jefferson Airplane was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996. Stray ink marks at Balin's signature. Minor scratches and smudges. Otherwise, fine condition.
