Members through the years included Quicksilver Messenger Service's guitarist John Cippolina, Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter on vocals and guitar, Country Joe & The Fish's Bary "The Fish" Melton on guitar, Big Brother & The Holding Company's bassist Peter Albin, Jefferson Airplane's and New Riders of the Purple Sage's drummer Spencer Dryden, Jerry Garcia associate Merl Saunders on keyboards, Moby Grape's guitarist Jerry Miller, Jefferson Airplane's, Hot Tuna's and Jefferson Starship's fiddler Papa John Creach, It's a Beautiful Day's electric violinist's David LaFlamme and others.
