(hennemusic) Original Jefferson Airplane vocalist Signe Anderson died last Thursday (Jan. 28) at the age of 74 - the same day bandmate and guitarist Paul Kanter passed away.

"One sweet Lady has passed on," wrote Jefferson Airplane co-founder Marty Balin on Facebook. "I imagine that she and Paul woke up in heaven and said 'Hey what are you doing here? Let's start a band.'"

"She was a real sweetheart with a terrific contralto voice coming from a solid folk background," posted Airplane bassist Jack Casady on Facebook. "Listen to how she made the three part harmonies of 'JA Takes Off' (first album) sound so thick her wonderful tone between Paul's and Marty's."

"Signe was one of the strongest people I have ever met," wrote Airplane lead guitarist Jorma Kaukonen on his blog. "She was our den mother in the early days of the Airplane a voice of reason on more occasions than one an important member of our dysfunctional little family." Read more here.
