Starship featuring Mickey Thomas
MICKEY THOMAS is the owner of the soaring voice that propelled STARSHIP through the decades of the 80’s and 90’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 I N LOVE” with The ELVIN BISHOP Band. In 1979, Mickey joined the JEFFERSON STARSHIP as lead vocalist, after the departure of Grace Slick and Marty Balin.
Backed by the power of MICK.EV’S vocals, JEFFERSON STARSHIP immediately scored a #1 hit with “JANE”. With this new sound and powerful new vocals, the group was renamed STARSHIP and continued to record an amazing string of hits including “NO WAY OUT ‘, “WE BUILT THIS CITY”, “SARA”, and an Oscar Nomination for the#1 NOTHINGS GONNA STOP US NOW “from the movie “Mannequin”. Other top hit s included “FIND YOUR WAY BACK”, “STRANGER”, “LAYING IT ON THE LINE”, and “ITS NOT OVER TILL ITS OVER” which became Major League Baseball’s theme in 1987.
Moreover, every STARSHIP album released since 1979 has gone Gold, Platinum, or Multi-Platinum. MICKEY’S stellar voice and video charisma on STARSHIP’s video classics such as “WE BUILT THIS CITY” and “SARA” have become staples on MTV and VHl.
