To carve in three dimensions the zeitgeist of the Summer of Love in 1967 America, you would have to chisel the Jefferson Airplane's second album "Surrealistic Pillow" into any Mt. Rushmore of Rock...Jefferson Airplane co-founder singer/songwriter Marty Balin (who passed away 2018), Grace Slick, and rhythm guitarist/songwriter Paul Kantner, who died in 2016, joined me for this landmark recording "Surrealistic Pillow" released the first week of February 1967.

When the Super Bowl was played in San Francisco in February 2016, hometown Bay Area hard rock heroes Metallica were the obvious choice for the midpoint entertainment slot...except the Load they were bringing was deemed "too heavy for halftime"…

If you really want to have fun with a self-proclaimed Deadhead, first have him/ her set down their phone and then ask them to name the Grateful Dead's highest-charting Billboard album up to the band's 1987 best-seller, "In the Dark" . You'll get a lot "Workingman's Dead" and "American Beauty" guesses, and after that I'd have picked "Terrapin Station". The correct answer turns out to be the tasty mid-decade effort by the Grateful Dead, "Blues for Allah". Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, & Phil Lesh are In the Studio.

So who did the the NFL secure to perform at halftime during the historic 50th All-American Super Bowl, broadcast to over a billion viewers worldwide from San Francisco, a US city with a long rich heritage of musical contributions? Coldplay, the finest innocuous British band money can buy.
