Strange Synchronicity Of Jefferson Airplane Deaths
Following the death of Paul Kantner last Thursday (28 January) comes news that his fellow early member of Jefferson Airplane and the group’s first female vocalist, Signe Anderson, died on the same day, at the same age, 74. Anderson, pictured above with the band, in the centre, was born six months after Kantner, in September 1941.
Anderson joined the influential San Francisco group soon after their inception in 1965 as their first frontwoman. She sang on the band’s 1966 debut album Jefferson Airplane Takes Off, then left after giving birth to a child, to be replaced by later vocal figurehead Grace Slick, formerly of Great Society. Anderson’s final performance with the band, at the Fillmore in San Francisco in October 1966, was released as a live album in 2010.
“I was just informed of the passing of Signe Anderson, the same day as we lost Paul,” wrote Jefferson Airplane’s bassist from 1965-72, Jack Casady, on Facebook. “Signe was our, Jefferson Airplane’s, first female singer. I had been in touch with Signe this past week as she had moved from her home to hospice care.
“She was a real sweetheart with a terrific contralto voice coming from a solid folk background. Listen to how she made the three part harmonies of ‘JA Takes Off ‘ (first album) sound so thick…her wonderful tone between Paul’s and Marty’s. A sad day…for those of us still here.”
Airplane founder Marty Balin, for his part, wrote: “One sweet lady has passed on. I imagine that she and Paul woke up in heaven and said ‘Hey what are you doing here? Let’s start a band’ and no sooner then said Spencer was there joining in!,” a reference to the band’s late drummer from 1966-70, Spencer Dryden, who died in 2005. “Heartfelt thoughts to all their family and loved ones.”

Singe was replaced by Grace Slick but her contribution to Airplane’s success should never be underestimated. i played “Takes Off” again just yesterday and her vocals were fantastic.
Jack Casady’s comments about her were spot on.
A shame her role is the band’s development has been mostly forgotten

Synchronicity is a phenomenon that borders on the miraculous. I think it is a product of metaphor ingrained into the very fabric of the universe. The human mind–a product of and existing in the universe–possesses the reflexive ability to tap into metaphors endowed intensely with feeling. The death of someone to whom one was intensely attached might qualify for this synchronicity. (For more on metaphor, see “Metamorphosos: A Proposed Path to Independent Living.”)

They both also died on the Birdman of Alcatrazs birthday January 28. 1/28, just saying because 2018 is also the 128th anniversary of Robert Strouds birth ion January 28 1890.Signe was born in Seattle just like the Birdman as well. I actually know way more about the world then anyone else on Earth. Thought you would find this interesting since the apocalypse has so much to do with music. Please take the time to read this. By the way I’m Nick Giant. Fukushima is Revelation vavavoomsp1 The antichrist is 49 now and was born on January 5 the same day construction started on the Golden Gate Bridge I’m 1933. The antichrist first met the creator of the satanic bible at the black house in San Francisco. Also the day the Golden Gate Bridge turned exactly 49 years old and the antichrist turned 13 , January 5, 1982 there was a landslide that killed 33 people in San Francisco they even had to close down the bridge. Interested in who the antichrist is? I have 100 percent proof Marilyn Manson is the antichrist. In revelation 1:4 there are 7 letters to 7 churches. Philadelphia is one of three churches named, the original capital and start of the United States. This year Philly won their first super bowl in 2018. Philadelphia to Canton Ohio is exactly 333 miles as the crow flies. Canton is where the football Hall of Fame is and is also where Marilyn Manson the antichrist was born on January 5th 1969. Canton Ohio to Chicago is exactly 333 miles as the crow flies. Chicago is where Anton Lavey published the satanic Bible in the same year Marilyn Manson was born, 1969. That adds up to 666, this is the true root of the mark of the beast. I figured this out because of 20 years of research and God putting me through a gauntlet of religious happenings my entire life. The reason I figured out to break the mark of the beast in half is because the number 333 has been following me my entire life. 333 was even engraved on the ignition key of the last Motorcycle before I bought it. The number 888 has been following my entire life as well. If you cut an 8 in half you get a 3. So if you attached 333 to 333 you would get 888, the number code which represents Jesus. Manson and Anton Lavey became friends and they first met each other at Anton’s Laveys Black house which happened to be in San Francisco. San Francisco is where Anton Lavey founded the church of satan. Now this is how I think Jesus will return as Superman. Robert Stroud the birdman of Alcatraz is surprisingly one of God’s most special Angels. Robert published a book about birds in 1933 that had to be originally smuggled out of prison. After he died he was buried cross country in Metropolis Illinois, the only city that is named after superman’s hometown. Jerry Siegel of Cleveland Ohio who created Superman (another birdman) in 1933 died 33 years later on the birdman’s birthday, January 28 1996. Metropolis Illinois to Fort Wayne Indiana is exactly 333 where I wrote the book American Wonderland, a book that once and for all proves God and Jesus exists. This is my soul purpose on Earth is to prove God and Jesus are 100 percent real before the end and Jesus comes back. If you add up all three 333 mile lines it equals 999. There is only one picture in existence that shows both Anton Lavey and Marilyn Manson together and above them you can clearly see the number 999. There was an incident the day after Carmelo Anthony led the Syracuse Orangemen to their first NCAA championship over the Kansas Jayhawks in 2003 to win their first NCAA title. This day I almost drowned where the St. Mary’s meets the St. Joseph River to form the Miami River in Fort Wayne Indiana. This is the day I walked the yellow brick road in real life and ended up meeting OZ at St. I got out of the river bare foot and later that day my friend gave me a pair of reddish orange echo shoes, which is the same color as the Denver broncos. The shoes had the rhinoceros logo on the side of then and later when I met a man who said his name is OZ at St. Joseph hospital. OZ had the rhinoceros echo logo branded on his forearm, the same size and shape of the shoes I was given that day. Ever since then I have had one biblical happening after another. I haven’t aged since 2003 as well. If #23 Wayne Anthony would have not been injured for the Kansas Jayhawks, Kansas most likely would have won that Championship Game. Wayne Anthony had the most success after that game and later won a title in the NBA with the Miami heat, Wayne also founded a successful Christian foundation. Fort Wayne was founded by Mad Anthony Wayne, this is Wayne Anthony’s name backwards. Johnny Depp was one of God’s special Angels until he became best friends with Marilyn Manson, they even have matching tattoos. If you ever watch the old 1962 movie “the birdman of Alcatraz” the first bird Robert saves is a Sparrow he names Jack. In pirates of the Caribbean, john plays Captain Jack Sparrow. The reason I know so many things is because of all the things God has put me through, and when I wrote about them it all came together like one huge puzzle. This is all part of Gods awesome plan. God’s revelation story starts at Philly where they filmed Rocky to Alcatraz “The Rock”, which both stands for Peter the Rock, Jesus’s best friend. I was born January 27, 1980 and the birdman of Alcatraz was born on January 28, 1890. The first day of construction of the Golden Gate Bridge was started on January 5th 1933, Marilyn Manson’s birthday. This is where the end will start, he’s either going jump off or get baptized in the water underneath the bridge, his choice. Either way the wicked witch is getting wet. To Get to Alcatraz you have to take a ferry at Pier # 33. Notice how many times the number 33 keeps popping up just in this story. 33 is a code God keeps putting in front of us to remind us of Jesus. On January 5th 1982 there was a landslide in San Francisco that killed 33 people in which they also had to shut down the Golden Gate Bridge that day. That landslide occurred on the exact day of the 49th anniversary of the start of construction of the Golden Gate Bridge and is also the same day Marilyn Manson turned 13 the same exact day Marilyn Manson sold his soul to the devil. There is a reason Marilyn Manson turned 49 this year, and there is a reason he was born in Canton Ohio, the football hall of fame and there is a reason the Philadelphia Eagles won this year, and there is a reason The Golden state Warriors are going to win this year in Philadelphia. The Golden State Warriors were originally the Philadelphia Warriors and won their first championship in 1956 against the Ft. Wayne Pistons. God’s story spans from Rocky in Philadelphia to the Rock in Alcatraz and both Rocks stand for Peter “the Rock” Jesus’s best friend.Thank you for your time. I’m not even scratching the surface of what i know.

On tell me more.m. Manson his name is made up of man and son. Jesus is son of man. Strange indeed.

The PHOTO does NOT show Signe Anderson. Anyone with the most rudimentary knowledge of Jefferson Airplane would know That’s GRACE SLICK.
