10 Songs From The Starship That'll Take You Back In Time
Members have come and gone through the different incarnations of the Starship from their early days at Jefferson Airplane in the '60s, Jefferson Starship in the '70s, and finally Starship in the 80s.
Mickey Thomas joined the band in 1979 and commercial success followed with rockers like Jane and Stranger.
Starship Features Lead Singer Mickey Thomas Who's Had Several #1 Hits
The group was renamed STARSHIP in 1985 and went on to record three #1 hit songs including "We Built This City", "Sara", and "Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now", from the film Mannequin which also was an Academy Award nominee. Their hit “It’s Not Over Til It’s Over” became Major League Baseball’s theme in 1987.
