Marty Balin, born Martyn Jerel Buchwald on January 30, 1942, is best known for his time with the Jefferson Airplane and its successor, Jefferson Starship. While driving my car on a day in 1966 I heard the song "It's No Secret," which introduced me to the group. I was really impressed by Balin's strong and unusual tenor voice.
I like Balin's songs, the best of which convey a strong sentimental streak with which I identify.
So, it's no secret, Marty...happy 68th birthday!
