Fly Jefferson Airplane with Jack Casady

uncredited writer, Hit Parader, December 1967

We've noticed that most of the fan magazines haven't been running many full-length articles on the Jefferson Airplane. Probably it's because the group won't lower itself by filling out those silly "1000 Things I Really Truly Love" questionnaires, or by revealing their intimate secrets, like their favorite food and do they date fans and what they dreamed about when they were children.

Each member of the Jefferson Airplane is a serious and talented musician, but unfortunately not too many magazines consider a group's music as important as all the "secret confessions" baloney. Hit Parader is happy to bring you another interview dealing with the Airplane's music. This month, our subject is Jack Casady, bass player.
