Paul Kantner, whom I knew in another century

Thinking of Paul Kantner, who passed on today. Driving force behind the Jefferson Airplane, a major architect of the soundscape of my youth.

Paul, Marty Balin, Jack Cassidy, Grace Slick and Spencer Dryden used to rehearse in the apartment upstairs from where my family lived in San Francisco in 1966 and 1967. That would make me five or six. I remember him as a quiet presence.
