You'd be the only one if it was Jefferson Starship ::

"We built this city of rock 'n roooooll" :rockon:

Oh, actually, Jefferson Starship have some records that I really love: "Dragonfly" and "Spitfire"... Pappa John Creach is awesome...

But yes, there you´re right, coz Jefferson Airplane are BIG.

I´ll look for a nice Grace Slick picture and put it as my avatar.

Texas Blues: Stevie Ray Vaughan, "Gatemouth" Brown

Chicago Blues: Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy

Delta Blues: John Lee Hooker, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters

Blues/Rock: Clapton, Hendrix

Contemporary Blues: Susan Tedeschi, Keb Mo, Jonny Lang
