Jefferson Starship – Save Your Love (live)

Let’s get the ‘apologies’ out of the way:

  • Yes, I am posting a song from Jefferson Starship.
  • It was the eighties.  That’s how people dressed and wore their hair.
  • Calling the lyrics cheesy does them too much justice.  “Go on out and gain the world/ But don’t lose yourself while your trying / Your truth is changing everyday / But your heart will let you know when you’re lying”.  Right, let me grab a pencil and write that down.
  • The guitarist, Craig Chaquico, does look like he might have been separated at birth from Dana Carvey
  • Chaquico is not generally considered in the ‘league’ of guitarists like Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Eddie Van Halen, etc. etc. etc.

Having said all that, the outro solo is a very well done piece of work.  It’s shorter and tighter on the official recording (though I’m guessing most people won’t want to rush out and buy a 80s album from Jefferson Starship, here’s the Amazon page for it), but given the cheesy, straight forward ‘rock ballad’ format, I think it still plays really well (I’ve actually tried to find if anyone ever created a tablature for it so I could take a shot at it myself, to no avail).

Ignore the hair and give it a chance.

It's one of the best guitarsolo's of all time and the bassplayer does a hell of job too.
