The family’s appeal speaks of Marty Balin’s contribution to music: “Marty fans describe him as a man who has made a significant contribution to improving the world:” One of the best voices of all time, the author of timeless songs and the founder of the group from San Francisco, which became the quintessence of the 1960s “”.
