US rock band: Jefferson Airplane honored with star on "Walk of Fame".

The three surviving musicians of the legendary US band Jefferson Airplane - together 241 years old - have unveiled a star plaque on Hollywood's "Walk of Fame". Singer Grace Slick (82), bassist Jack Casady (78) and guitarist Jorma Kaukonen (81) celebrated the inauguration of the 2737th plaque on the famous sidewalk.

She had a "very loud" voice and was just very lucky, Slick looked back at her beginnings with the band in San Francisco in the mid-1960s. The 82-year-old wore a dark hat. He heard rocker Paul Kantner, said the former rock tube. In this way, the band co-founder, who died in 2016, is at least there with his DNA.

As a guest speaker, musician John Densmore (The Doors) recalled a joint European tour of the two bands in 1968. Jefferson Airplane had a "really strong" rock sound. "You have fully earned this star," the 77-year-old drummer praised his colleagues.

Formed during the flower power movement in California, the band was known for their psychedelic blues rock and hits like "Somebody to Love" and "White Rabbit". In addition to Slick, Casady, Kaukonen and Kantner, the regular cast also included the singer Marty Balin, who died in 2018. At the 1969 Woodstock Rock Festival, the band performed alongside music greats such as Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Joan Baez and The Who. In 2016, the band members were honored with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
