Jefferson Airplane was an American rock band formed in San Francisco in 1965. A pioneer of the psychedelic rock movement, Jefferson Airplane was the first band from the San Francisco scene to achieve mainstream commercial and critical success.
The band performed at the three most famous American rock festivals of the 1960s—Monterey (1967), Woodstock (1969) and Altamont (1969)[—as well as headlining the first Isle of Wight Festival. Their recordings were internationally successful, and they scored two US Top 10 hit singles and a string of Top 20 albums. Their 1967 record Surrealistic Pillow is regarded as one of the key recordings of the so-called Summer of Love and brought the group international recognition. Two chart hits from the album, "Somebody to Love" and "White Rabbit", are listed in Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Songs of All Time". Successor bands to Jefferson Airplane include Jefferson Starship and Starship; spinoffs include Hot Tuna and KBC Band. Jefferson Airplane was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996. Grace Slick (born Grace Barnett Wing; October 30, 1939) is an American singer, songwriter, and former model, best known as one of the lead singers of the rock groups The Great Society, Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship, and Starship, as well as for her work as a solo artist from the mid-1960s to the mid-1990s. Slick was an important figure in the 1960s psychedelic rock movement, known for her witty lyrics and powerful contralto vocals.

Baron Wolman grew up in Columbus, Ohio, studied philosophy at Northwestern University in Chicago, learned German at the Defense Language School in Monterey, California, and then did a tour with military intelligence in West Berlin.
In Berlin, Wolman sold his first photo essay for publication, a story about life behind the then-new Berlin Wall. From Germany he moved to California to continue his career as a photo journalist. In 1967, a fortuitous meeting with Jann Wenner, the founder of Rolling Stone, resulted in Wolman becoming that publication's first chief photographer. For three years his photographs were published regularly in Rolling Stone and became the magazine's graphic centerpiece. Over forty years later, those same photographs, picture memories of the 60's, are now widely exhibited and collected. In 1970, Wolman left the Stone to start his own magazine, Rags, the "Rolling Stone of fashion." The creative and irreverent monthly featured styles of the times and was an acknowledged journalistic success. Unfortunately, Rags did not survive the recession and publication ceased after only 13 issues. When he was suddenly bitten by the flying bug in the mid-seventies Wolman bought a little Cessna, learned to fly and began doing aerial photography. Collections of his aerial landscapes have appeared in two successful books, “California From the Air: The Golden Coast” and “The Holy Land: Israel From The Air.” For many years his colorful "airscapes" were published annually in his popular "from the air" scenic calendars. Over the years Wolman had become addicted to publishing's "natural high." In 1974, he founded Squarebooks Publishing. With world headquarters now located 60 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge in Santa Rosa, California, Squarebooks continues its long tradition of publishing an eclectic list of illustrated, quality books. In August 2001, Baron moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico -- to savor its tasty chili-infused cuisine, to marvel at its relentlessly beautiful sunsets, and to revel in the ambiance of its delightfully eccentric, artistic community. With the 2011 publication of his book, “Baron Wolman – The Rolling Stone Years,” Baron and his photographs are once more in great demand, with exhibits and appearances scheduled in cities and countries around the world. His long-time mantra, “Mixing Business With Pleasure Since 1965,” continues to be his guiding light...
