Jefferson Starship recently returned into the orbit of public consciousness with the announcement of a new album entitled Mother Of The Sun.
The Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl himself, aside from appearing in many live benefit concerts, also recently penned an op-ed on the importance of a return to live music. “There is nothing like the energy and atmosphere of live music,” he wrote. “It is the most life-affirming experience to see your favourite performer on stage, in the flesh, rather than as a one-dimensional image glowing in your lap as you spiral down a midnight YouTube wormhole.”
