Career

Brezsny was a singer and songwriter for the 1970s and 1980s bands Weeds, Hunky Dory, Windjammer, Kamikaze Angel Slander, Mystery Spot, Youth In Asia, and Tao Chemical, and the early 1990s band World Entertainment War,[8] for whom Brezsny wrote the song "Dark Ages", which was later recorded by Jefferson Starship for their 1995 album Deep Space / Virgin Sky.[9][10] Jefferson Starship also recorded the World Entertainment War song "In A Crisis" on their 2008 album Jefferson's Tree of Liberty.[11]
