Bob Weir Issues Statement Regarding Paul Kantner's Passing
Soon after hearing that Jefferson Airplane's Paul Kantner had died, Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead sat down and composed a statement about his fellow rhythm guitarist.
"Paul lived at the heart of the music, where the chords, the melody and the rhythm join together with the lyrics to form the story. His guitar was the glue that held all that together. His voice was the foundation of the choral vocals. Paul lived at the heart of the song. He was there for the Muse - when she needed a human voice or instrument, she channeled it through him."
