Signe Anderson of Jefferson Airplane in 1965

Signe Anderson was a founding member of the band, Jefferson Airplane. Soon after joining, she married one of the Merry Pranksters, Jerry Anderson, and had a baby. Not only did Anderson have huge trust issues with the Airplane’s original manager, (who she refused to sign a contract with) but she also had a newborn baby and realized taking her family on the road was a horrible idea. There have also been rumors of hostility towards her husband from some of the band members. Anderson told Bill Graham that she was quitting the band, but stayed through the October shows at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco, to which she agreed. This gave the band time to find a replacement, which ended up being Grace Slick. H/T Groovy History >
