    Among the members of The Great Society were Grace Slick, her husband Jerry on drums and his brother Darby on guitar. The sextet formed in 1965 and released only one single, Someone To Love (written by Darby). In 1966, Grace replaced Signe Anderson as lead singer of Jefferson Airplane. With her new band, she re-recorded the song, retitled Somebody To Love, and it became Jefferson Airplane's first hit. The Great Society broke up and Jerry joined a new group, The Final Solution. That group broke up after a year and Jerry became a filmmaker of television commercials. He won a Clio award for a public-service ad recruiting officers for the San Francisco Police Department.

    Callahan co-starred on General Hospital (1984-85), Falcon Crest (1986-88) and Santa Barbara (1989-91). He played Edmund Grey on All My Children from 1992 to 2005. (The USA TODAY obituary misspelled the name as "Gray." For shame!) Eva LaRue played Callahan's love interest on the series and they wound up marrying in real life. Callahan also co-starred on Days Of Our Lives (2008-10).
