Jefferson Airplane, the most successful and influential rock band to emerge from San Francisco during the 1960s, created the sound of a generation. Their smash hits Somebody to Love and White Rabbit provided the soundtrack to the Summer of Love. Their appearances at the landmark Monterey Pop, Woodstock and Altamont Rock festivals - the only band to play at all three - placed them on the front lines during one of the most exciting, tumultuous times in American history. Their confrontational lyrics and alternative lifestyles often cast them as outlaws in the eyes of America. Jefferson Airplane didn't just dominate American culture at the peak of the 60s, they transformed it.
Got A Revolution is the first full lentgh biography about the band. Jeff Tamarkin has worked closely with the former members of the band for more than a decade and penned more than 25 Airplane-related sleeve notes. Those who lived it tell the story: the band members, their families, their lovers, friends, crew members and fellow musicians - the book's all star cast includes David Crosby, Janis Joplin, Donovan, The Grateful Dead, The Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney...
