Another childhood icon bites the dust. I sure as hell remember rocking to White Rabbit and Somebody to Love.

Marty Balin - the co-founder and vocalist-guitarist of the psychedelic rock band Jefferson Airplane - has died aged 76, his family and publicist say.

They did not specify the cause of death of the US musician.

Balin, real name Martyn Jerel Buchwal, found fame with the group in the 1960s with hits such as White Rabbit.

He left the San Francisco-based band in 1970 - but later got back together with some of its members under the name Jefferson Starship.

He was inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.
