About Craig Chaquico
Craig has engaged and inspired two generations of pop music fans, first as a founding member, the only lead guitar player, and a principle prolific songwriter for the multi-platinum Jefferson Starship / Starship during the '70s, '80s, and all the way till the band finally split up in 1990 and stopped recording. While others came and went Craig is the only person in the band to ever have appeared on every hit song, hit album, hit CD, national tour, MTV video, during that whole most historic and successful time for the band. After many various excellent substitutes on lead guitar since, if it was actually a real original Jefferson Starship and/or Starship recording, hit song, and/or you heard it on the radio, and/or you saw it on MTV, then it was only Craig playing all the lead guitar.
With 20 Gold records with Jefferson Starship and Starship, as an original founding member, lead guitarists, co-producer and songwriter, Craig was instrumental in making that one of the most successful bands in history.
