July 1976. Jef­fer­son Star­ship. Cen­tral Park, New York City.

Shot of Grace Slick and me with Jef­fer­son Star­ship, Cen­tral Park, New York City. 100,000 peo­ple showed up to see the band. I’m play­ing my old Fend­er 63 Jazz bass, which I had ear­li­er used with “The Long John Baldry Blues Band”, “Cop­per­head”, “Sears, Schon, Erri­co”, and sev­er­al tracks on ear­ly Rod Stew­art albums, includ­ing “Cut Across Shorty” on Gaso­line Alley in 1970. It was soon to be stolen at a riot in Ger­many. This same year 1976, Jef­fer­son Star­ship sold out Mil­wau­kee Sta­di­um at 60,000 peo­ple.
