San Francisco Public Library

Jefferson Airplane was the first mid-1960s Haight Ashbury band to be signed by a major label and achieve international success. “Surrealistic Pillow” and “Volunteers” are recognized as two of the greatest albums of the ’60s and the band played in the three most famous rock festivals of the era: Monterey, Woodstock and Altamont.

Join us when Rodney Paul discusses the evolution of the band and key personnel changes that led to their golden period. We’ll see video clips of Airplane at various stages and talk about how they melded their diverse talents. We’ll also talk about their participation in the Summer of Love and other key events of the 1960s.
