  • Quicksilver Messenger Service

    Formed in San Francisco in 1965, Quicksilver Messenger Service led the Bay Area psychedelic/acid-rock movement alongside acts like Jefferson Airplane and the Grateful Dead. They performed at the Monterey International Pop Festival in June 1967 and their first two albums, 1968's eponymous debut and 1969's Happy Trails, embodied the San Francisco sound at the time. What set the group apart was the more jazz-influenced approach of guitarists John Cipollina and Gary Duncan, as opposed to the heavily amplified style of their contemporaries. Though the group's sound and line-up changed many times over the course of its run - at different points featuring bassist David Freiberg (who would later join Jefferson Starship), guitarist/vocalist Dino Valente, drummer Greg Elmore, and keyboardist Nicky Hopkins - QMS remain a classic.
