Mickey Thomas and his soaring voice propelled Starship through the ‘80s, and his compelling vocals establishing him as one of rock music’s most recognizable stars. He first 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, recording a string of hits including “Jane,” “No Way Out,” “Find Your Way Back,” “Stranger,” “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.
Starship features Mickey Thomas (lead vocals), Jeff Adams (bass), John Roth (guitar), Phil Bennett (keyboards), Darrell Verdusco (drums) and Cian Coey (vocals).
