Notorious SF: Jefferson Airplane
The Jefferson Airplane mansion at 2400 Fulton Street is a landmark in the annals of rock and roll history. Like the Grateful Dead, Airplane was a San Francisco band influencing American culture in the late 1960s. Members of Airplane bought the four-story mansion for $70,000 in 1968. It served as their studio, headquarters, home, court, castle, and party pad for over a decade. During this time, lead singer Grace Slick allegedly dosed the punch at Tricia Nixon's June 12, 1971 wedding to Edward Cox in Washingon D.C. The Blues Brothers stayed here following the New Year's Eve 1979 final show at the Winterland Ballroom.
