In terms of sheer musicianship,I go Quicksilver.However much as a marginal it is for me,in the final analysis,the Airplane spanned a slightly more diverse palate of sonic texture.......

I have to go with Jefferson Airplane/Starship.
Grace and Marty could sing some beautiful songs.
They did get a bit too political at times.
When Grace stayed sober all was well.
When she got drunk it got ugly:
