    Jethro Tull is a great band. Martin Barre is one of my favorite guitar players.

    Ian Anderson created a lot of wonderful music. The song you posted is one of my favorites, and that is an absolutely beautiful rendition.

    I hope Ian is doing well.

    Thank you for posting that.

    A pretty fertile mind that man has. And an underrated guitar player I think

    And the best stage banter quip I ever heard. It was in an amusement park in Doswell, Va. Kings Dominion, it might still be there. But anyway, outdoor show and it looked like rain was about to hit. Ian looks up and quips, it looks like we're about to have an involuntary wet T shirt contest in that dry wit of his

    I'll have to check those out. Thank you for letting me know about them!

    I love his guitar playing and his tone.

    An often overlooked guitar player in my opinion, but obviously a huge part of Tull's sound.

    I had hopes to see shows with both of them before things got screwy.

    Still hoping for a chance some day. :)

    I have been a fan since about 1974. The thought of a rock and roll guy who played the flute and acoustic guitar really fascinated me. Not to mention the song writing ability. The rest of Jethro Tull wasn't too shabby either. The early stuff was groundbreaking. Sort of lost touch with them in the 80's and 90's. I saw an interview with Ian a couple of years ago. Looked like he was doing well.

    A great contribution to the history of rock!

    Count me in there as well.

    And if you can find a solo album/disk by Mick Abrahams titled All Said And Done, snag it! I had a copy once and it's gone missing...:(
