A true trailblazing icon, Jefferson Starship made constant breakthroughs in the many forms of rock music, from hard rock to progressive to psychedelic. The group's storied career brought them three platinum and eight gold records, not to mention numerous Top 40 singles across music charts. Among their most notable forays are their Billboard 200 No. 1 album Red Octopus, which features tracks like "Miracles" and "Play on Love," and the gold-certified Nuclear Furniture, which spawned the Top 40 hit "No Way Out."
Throughout its expansive career, the platinum-selling American rock band underwent continuous evolution not only in terms of sound but also in its personnel. Jefferson Starship descended from the GRAMMY and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members of the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane, co-founded by the late Paul Kanter. Today, the enduring lineup consists of Donny Baldwin, Jude Gold, Cathy Richardson, and Chris Smith, led by founding member David Freiberg.
"We all love each other. We're family. We've played hundreds of shows all over the world, and it's an incredible honor to still be part of something that's still going after all these years. I'm going to be doing this forever," Richardson said in a previous interview.
