Spencer Dryden is best known for his drumming with Jefferson Airplane throughout their most popular years, 1966-1970. During this era, the band released such legendary hits as “White Rabbit”, “Somebody To Love”, “Crown of Creation” and “Volunteers”. Spencer went on to perform with New Riders of the Purple Sage (who he also managed), Seven Deadly Sins, Dinosaurs, and Fish & Chip. He was inducted along with his Airplane band mates into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1996. For more information about Spencer visit Spencer's Website.

This well-loved musician has also been plagued with numerous medical conditions that require ongoing treatment.
