Musical Musings… Starship To Sean! Starship To Sean!

I should give up.
I make so many mistakes when it comes to modern music that I should be ashamed of myself.

But I won’t give up.  And I won’t be ashamed.  Especially not because of this.

Let’s sidestep the fact that I’ve had a long-standing confusion over which songs are by REO Speedwagon and which are by Jefferson Airplane/ Jefferson Starship/ Jefferson D’Arcy/ Starship (this also happens to me with Genesis and Phil Collins solo, which is probably fair).

But it was recently brought to my attention that Starship’s biggest hits were not performed by a duo of men, like Air Supply

Making Love Out of Nothing at All

…but of a dude looks like and a lady.  The dude was Mickey Thomas; the lady – Grace Slick.

So my next mistake was thinking this was Grace Slick:

Nope... that's Grace Jones.

For the record, I did not think this was Grace Jones:

Yup... that's Grace Slick.

So from here on out, with grace, I shall never forget.
Got it, slick?
