So last week, playing around with the family tree and genetics site Geni, I discovered that I was distantly related to the Jefferson Airplane's Jorma Kaukonen and that my wife Leslie was related to the late Marty (Buchwald) Balin.
Now to be honest they are sometimes the loosest of in law relationships but they are indeed real. And on my side, as we will see, funnily enough, all through my paternal grandmother.
As a goof tonight I plugged Jack Casady and Kantner in to the engine, no luck.
I was related to both Spencer Dryden and Grace Slick however, both through my father's side. And Charlie Chaplin, although he never played in the band. I didn't know he was Dryden's uncle?
