David Freiberg

He is among the most prolific musicians to emerge from the Bay Area’s psychedelic era in a career that traversed decades and genres.

Though most noted as the bassist for Quicksilver Messenger Service; multi-instrumentalist, composer David Freiberg also plied his craft with Paul Kantner & Grace Slick, Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship, Robert Hunter, and Mickey Hart, among others.

An adept pocket-player and improviser, Freiberg’s bass skills came into play when the superstar bassists of the above referenced ensembles were unavailable. Regardless, Freiberg was a solid player who waxed many a seminal side in the classic rock era.
