White Rabbit featuring Elaine Caswell, backed by Jorma Kaukonen, Ricky Byrd, Rich Pagano, Steve Conte as well as a hidden bass player and two keyboards also hidden.

Photographer unknown by me, but thanks!

As a person who has been in recovery for a couple of 24 hours, being able to be a part of this show was more than a pleasure… it was an honor!

Here’s a link that explains it better than I can.

Hey… I could go on and on but well… you get the idea.

Go on line and check out all the great folks weo were on the show that I can’t remember!

On another note I am remembering Paul Kantner as well as Signe Toly Anderson both of whom have now been gone for eight years today… Gone but definitely not forgotten.

Here’ to us, and those like us… damn few left!

    Condolences to the Pogano family.

    Please, God may his generation talk to their grandchildren about this terrible time, them only knowing of it through history books.

    Some of Us old timers at this page miss some a the banter we used to get into but I’m Tired of banging my head against a fuckin wall anyway. Mr Kantner began singing “God Bless America” towards the latter years and it evolved into “volunteers. I’m delighted to say that the band still carries on that tradition, many times closing the show with it. I’m sure he would have a thing or two to say about major political party having no problems endorsing and voting for a dictator. … I was fortunate to see the Starship tours Signe was on. … Happy early birthday Marty Balin . Thank you Mr Kaukonen
    As Mr Kantner and Balin sang
    “Somebody give me a light I need a little
    Help thru the darkness
    Just a little light
    Enough to get me home …

    I can read your mind an I know
    What you’re thinkin
    I can see your mind just as clear as my own
    The pictures I see they all tell a story
    Bout where we been and where we’re goin
    Tonite if only the music would keep on playing
    Tonite if only I could dance with you
    Tonite if only we could keep on singin
    All nite long, all nite long, all nite long
    Peace✌🏻️❤️Love All Ways🔥🚲🌹🙏🏻🖖🏼 Fair winds and happy

      When wrong… promptly admitted it. Yes, Signe was on Starship tours. I guess it would have been in the 90’s but that was far from my life at the time and it wouldn’t have been on my radar. Sorry Sig’ In any case miss you girl. Whenever either Tuna or myself played the Aladdin in Portland, Signe would stop by and say hello.

      Lovely post Ham! Nudge that I am I must point out the Signe (May her memory be a blessing) was in Jefferson Airplane not Jefferson Starship. BTW I wasn’t in the Starship either for those who blow that call. As we all approach whatever awaits us at the end of the road little nitpicking stuff like this seems more important. Just sayin’
