Starship Release 'It's Not The Same As Love' Lyric Video
... (Classic Rock) Starship
featuring Mickey Thomas have released their first new music in over 25 years with the release of the lyric video for "It's Not The Same As Love". The track is taken from new album Loveless Fascination, which was just released - and Thomas says the band know exactly why they're doing what they're doing. He tells UCR: "I decided to get back to make a record that would sound more like the late 70s, early 80s Starship
, as opposed to the late 80s Starship
. In other words, a more organic, true classic rock'n'roll sound." The album features writing and production from Jeff Pilson of Dokken, Foreigner and Dio fame. Thomas says: "He is classic rock personified. He lives and breathes it - and it comes across in the music." Check out the video here.

Formed from the remains of Jefferson Starship (which was formed from Jefferson Airplane). Jefferson Starship ended when guitarist Paul Kantner and multi-instrumentalist David Freiberg left.
All of the founding members had played with Jefferson Starship. Thomas joined in 1979, Baldwin in 1982, Sears, Chaquico, and Slick in 1974.
After these guys broke up, Kantner reclaimed the name Jefferson Starship and toured with some fresh faces and some former members, but none from Starship.
