John Cipollina-was half of the twin-guitar team w/Gary Duncan (Quicksilver Messenger Service), the best acid-rock dance band of 60s. Cipollina's spires of tremolo, enriched w/the erotica of flamenco, in "The Fool," from the band's '68 debut, and his ravishing improvisations in Bo Diddley's "Mona" and "Who Do You Love", are supreme psychedelia, authentic evidence of what it was like to be at the Fillmore in the Summer of Love. Cipollina, who suffered from severe emphysema, died in 1989.
