Starship – It’s Not Enough

ADVERTISEMENTS

Starship is an American rock band established in 1984. Although it was initially a continuation of Jefferson Starship, its change in musical direction, and subsequent loss of key Jefferson Starship personnel and enforced name change ultimately led it to become a separate entity from the original band. In June 1984, Paul Kantner, the last remaining founding member of Jefferson Airplane, left Jefferson Starship, and then took legal action over the Jefferson Starship name against his former bandmates.

Kantner settled out of court and signed an agreement that neither party would use the names “Jefferson” or “Airplane” unless all members of Jefferson Airplane, Inc. (Bill Thompson, Paul Kantner, Grace Slick, Jorma Kaukonen, Jack Casady) agreed. The band briefly changed its name to “Starship Jefferson” while legal proceedings occurred, before settling on the shortened name “Starship.”

Starship – It’s Not Enough

David Freiberg stayed with the band after the lawsuit and attended the first studio sessions for the next album. He became frustrated with the sessions because all the keyboard work in the studio was being done by Peter Wolf and that was the instrument Freiberg was supposed to be playing.

He left the band and the next album was finished with the five remaining members, consisting of Slick, co-lead singer Mickey Thomas, guitarist Craig Chaquiço, bassist Pete Sears, and drummer Donny Baldwin. In 1984, Gabriel Katona (who had previously played in Rare Earth and Player) joined the band to play keyboards and saxophone on the road with them through to the end of the 1986 tour.

Love Among the Cannibals is the third album released in 1989 by rock band Starship. It was the first album after Grace Slick’s departure from the band, and their last full-length studio release until Loveless Fascination in 2013. The song “Wild Again” had previously been produced for the soundtrack to Cocktail (1988), and was included as a bonus track for the album’s CD release. The album had one top 20 single on the Billboard charts, “It’s Not Enough”, which peaked at No. 12 in October 1989.
