IMPOSSIBLE TRIVIA: A Teenage Girl Will Consider Over 20 of These Before Choosing One?

YouTube

Starship, an iconic rock band from the eighties, recorded several of the decade’s biggest anthems, including “We Built This City”, “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” and “Sara”.

While the band’s history goes back to the sixties, the incarnation still performing these hits today was started in 1981 when Mickey Thomas joined Paul Kantner and Grace Slick to form Jefferson Starship.

Mickey’s voice had become legendary after recording “Fooled Around and Fell in Love” with the Elvin Bishop Band and he was planning to pursue a solo career. But Jefferson Starship quickly proved to be the right decision as they recorded their first hit, “Jane”, almost immediately after getting together.

Paul Kantner left in 1984, inspiring Mickey and Grace to change the band’s name to just Starship. In 1985, Starship released the album that would come to define the eighties, Knee Deep in the Hoopla. Featuring two #1 hits – “We Built this City” and “Sara” – the album reached #7 on Billboard and went platinum.

Starship followed-up their initial success with another #1 single, “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” featured on the soundtrack for Mannequin. As Starship continued to reach the top of the charts, MTV infiltrated pop culture and the band released videos for all of their hits that are still popular today.

In 1988, Grace Slick left the band and Starship was temporarily disbanded. But Mickey Thomas took the reins in 1992 and has been touring ever since.  Mickey Thomas brings Starship to the Golden Nugget Friday, March 28th.
