Jefferson Airplane's glorious Pooneil

Bumped into this video, and couldn't resist posting it.  Not for the faint-hearted, nor for those who have only a passing knowledge of Jefferson Airplane.  If you're looking another "Somebody To Love", you'll be tripping over a whole lot less salubrious music - but if you love guitar and can listen to jammy grunge (and can excuse a little psychedelia), stick around.  A wonderfully ensemble piece, with great work by original guitarist Jorma Kaukonen.
