Quicksilver Messenger Service

Quicksilver Messenger Service

Quicksilver Messenger Service was one of the vintage acid-rock San Francisco bands of the late 1960s. Its early shows and albums (featuring the heavily tremoloed guitar work of John Cipollina, plus that of second guitarist Gary Duncan) contributed some of the best-remembered instrumental jam music of the period. But as the 1960s ended, Quicksilver's popularity waned, and it never achieved the national popularity of its San Francisco contemporaries, Jefferson Airplane and the Grateful Dead.
