Skip Spence

Born Alexander Lee “Skip” Spence on April 18, 1946, he is known for his work with Quicksilver Messenger Service, Jefferson Airplane, as a co-founder of Moby Grape and as a solo artist.

Mental illness, drug addiction and alcoholism prevented Skip from a longer career in the music industry. Much of his life was spent as a ward of the State of California, and either homeless or in transient homes towards the end of his life.

Skip died of lung cancer two days before his 53rd birthday on April 16, 1999.
