STARSHIP Featuring Mickey Thomas

Mickey Thomas is the owner of the soaring voice that propelled STARSHIP through the decade of the 80’s. With his soulful and compelling vocals, Mickey has established himself as one of Rock Music’s most recognizable stars.

Mickey made his mark in 1976 as lead vocalist on the mega-hit “Fooled Around And Fell In Love” with The Elvin Bishop Band. In 1979, Mickey joined Jefferson Starship as the lead vocalist, after the departure of Grace Slick and Marty Balin, and recorded a string of hits including "Jane", "No Way Out", "Find Your Way Back", "Stranger", and "Layin' It on the Line".

The group was renamed STARSHIP in 1985 and went on to record three #1 hit songs including "We Built This City", "Sara", and "Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now", from the film Mannequin which also was an Academy Award nominee. Their hit “It’s Not Over Til It’s Over” became Major League Baseball’s theme in 1987. Mickey’s stellar voice and video charisma on STARSHIP’s video classics such as “We Built This City” and “Sara” became staples on MTV and VH1.

One can expect to hear hits from STARSHIP and Jefferson Starship at STARSHIP’s live performances, as well as a few selections from Jefferson Airplane as a nod to both band’s beginnings.
