Peter Kaukonen of Jefferson Starship Interview Show Yes, he's the brother of Jorma, but Peter Kaukonen has his own musical history, guesting on many an album from Jefferson Starship's science fiction concept album "Blows Against the Empire" (1970) to Jefferson Airplane offshoots to his own album with his band Black Kangaroo in 1972 and beyond. He's a witty raconteur and trouble maker, and that comes through in the 40 minutes (after an amazing 20 minutes that failed to record) we spend with him...and his related musics. The Airplane Family (with Peter) and Live Dead '69 is appearing at the Crystal Ballroom in the Somerville Theatre on Thursday, October 21, playing all of "Blows Against the Empire" and more.
