Jethro Tull
« on: March 21, 2016, 08:46:14 PM »
This band features one of the most recognizable vocalists in rock music in band leader Ian Anderson, it's also pretty hard to mistake their sound for too many other bands due to his distinct flute playing. I won't even attempt to go into much as far as the other band members because there have been a shit load of members pass through this band over the years. However the band actually started in the late 60's as more of a heavier blues based band before becoming a more prominent success in the 70's and alternating between folk, blues, progressive, harder rock and just about everything in between at one point or another. The early lineup featured Glen Cornick (bass), Mick Abrahams (guitar) and Clive Bunker (drums). later in the 70's the other best known widely recognizable lineup would feature Martin Barre (guitar), Barriemore Barlow (drums), John Evan (keyboards) to name but a few.   

Here is a representation of the early more heavy bluesier oriented Jethro Tull in their beginning, Some really cool stuff on the first few records.

Some great early live stuff; It is a shame the early lineup didn't stay together longer. What might have been.

Teacher from benefit was also a great older song. I always liked the entire aqualung album and the unusual thick as a brick album. I have seen this band many times and the shows were always excellent

This is a crock of shit here. I keep seeing this advertised as Jethro Tull 50th Anniversary tour/shows all over the place, including Philly at the Mann music Center, then you see the fine print above "Ian Anderson Presents" This is the fuckin Ian Anderson band with NO other founding or classic era's members whatsoever. You'd think for the 50th anniversary he could invite Martin Barre and a few other past notable members that are still alive and well. In fact, I did some research, every member that has pretty much ever been a part of Jethro Tull through all the fifty years is still alive , exceptions being Glenn Cornick, John Glascock and Mark Craney (who was in the band briefly in 1980-81) THIRTY ONE other members who have passed through the band could have been asked to participate, instead ya get two guys who have played with Ian Anderson since 2007, and two new guys that he recruited this year. PATHETIC, Truly sad. Here is a 50th Anniversary of a band not done well.

It's Hard to believe that he would not be on speaking terms with that
many former players. So it must be that he wants the majority of the
money for himself. As you said it would be a much better 50th tour with former
members maybe he feels there is not enough interest in the band at this
time to support paying former members. For me if it's just Ian and his band
I have seen him enough times in the past with Tull and with his band in recent years
that a 50th tour wouldn't mean anything to me unless I could pick the set-list.

Great set list, that would be worth sitting through the long show  8)

Their two best lineups were the early years lineup, and the late 70's lineup.

Here is a good two part interview with Ian Anderson by Jeb Wright at Classic Rock Revisited. Ian actually addresses why no other members are involved in this, and it kind of makes some sense.

Sounds pretty cool that some of the previous band members recorded intros to songs for the upcoming tour.  Might have to go just for that part alone. 

Hunting Girl Live 1977

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3n8cCZ-3Eo

So you haven't played for decades and you get the call.  Fancy coming on tour for a few songs?  Then you watch a clip like the one attached to remind yourself of the songs and their complexity.  You are 40 years older.  It probably took most of them less than a minute to say thanks but no thanks and I cant blame them honestly. 

I love this band, most especially the period from Songs From The Wood through to Broadsword And The Beast.  I kind of hope Ian hangs it up after this tour.

Awesome album Songs from the wood, yeah that era was great. Some of those guys are deceased, some haven't played in years and left the music business, some weren't in the band long. Good reasons were given for some of the more well known players. Martin Barre is one that that should have been involved, I find it hard to believe he was that booked up and unwilling to do this instead.
