From Folk to Acid Rock, How Marty Balin Launched the San Francisco Music Scene

quote [ Biill Graham, Janis Joplin, Jerry Garcia—half a century on, these names still evoke the sound of San Francisco in the late 1960s. To be sure, the city’s greatest concert promoter, singer, and guitarist all deserve their status as cultural icons, but it was another guy whose name you might not immediately recognize, Marty Balin, who drew the world’s attention to San Francisco in the first place. ]

enjoy...acid rock

Interesting read. Jerry Garcia being the "greatest guitarist" from San Francisco is highly debatable considering Lindsey Buckingham, John Fogerty, Jerry Horton, and Kirk Hammett, all hail from the Bay-Area.

Yes sir...there was a sizable period where it was unusual when a hot new band DIDN'T come from San Francisco.
