Jefferson Airplane's Paul Kantner Flies Away Forever

W/ his Rickey, in better times.
They really are dropping like flies.
His death was confirmed by longtime publicist and friend, Cynthia Bowman, who said he died of multiple organ failure and septic shock.

Mr. Kantner had a string of health problems in recent years, including a heart attack in March.
The Airplane's Surrealistic Pillow was the first record I purchased for myself, probably w/ money I'd stolen from a parental unit's wallet or purse. Summer of '67 & all, & almost 49 yrs. ago.

Now I can only wonder what next Jan.'s death toll of the heroes of my adolescence will be.
