Although Jefferson Airplane is rightfully in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, its offshoot, Jefferson Starship seems quite far away from that accolade. Jefferson Starship actually bore little resemblance to Airplane as they became one of the most successful Arena Rock bands of all time. This change in sound was both good and bad. Good, in that the new version was able to sell more albums and more arena seats than they ever could before. Bad in that Jefferson Starship failed to garner the cultural relevance that they once had. It is the latter point and the fact that Grace Slick and company are already inducted that will likely keep Jefferson Starship from the Hall.
