Starship Artistfacts

  • Formed from the remains of Jefferson Starship (which was formed from Jefferson Airplane). Jefferson Starship ended when guitarist Paul Kantner and multi-instrumentalist David Freiberg left.
  • All of the founding members had played with Jefferson Starship. Thomas joined in 1979, Baldwin in 1982, Sears, Chaquico, and Slick in 1974.
  • After these guys broke up, Kantner reclaimed the name Jefferson Starship and toured with some fresh faces and some former members, but none from Starship.
  • Enjoyed more commercial success than any of the previous incarnations.
  • Thomas formed "Starship with Mickey Thomas" after this group disbanded. The only similarity to the original group other than Thomas was Bloomfield.
