Jefferson Starship, created by Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Jefferson Airplane founder Paul Kantner, embarks on tour in 2011 marking 40 years since the release of their first album "Blows Against the Empire." "Blows" was the first ever rock music recording nominated for literary science fiction's prestigious Hugo Award and represented a pinnacle of collaboration for Kantner's "Airplane camp". Jefferson Starship takes flight again in 2011, reprising a 40 plus year repertoire that is the soundtrack to a generation. Paul Kantner's music has appeared in numerous films including "Forrest Gump" and "A Serious Man" and his plans include producing, composing and touring well into the future. In 2011 he will be 70 years young. The version of the Starship features Kantner, David Freiberg, Cathy Richardson, Chris Smith, Slick Aguilar and Donny Baldwin.
