Jude Gold, host of Guitar Player’s No Guitar Is Safe podcast, goes off the script for an emotional remembrance of his friend and bandmate Paul Kantner.
As the lead guitarist for Jefferson Starship since 2012, Gold worked side by side with the late founder of Jefferson Airplane and Jefferson Starship, who died this past January 28.
In this special episode, Gold recalls Kantner’s music, personality and escapades—from his sneaking cigarettes at the airport to his morbid sense of humor and the awesome power of his Rickenbacker 12-string into two Fender Twins. This is as close as you can get to Paul Kantner in his final years.
