When did Jethro Tull make it big?

Jethro Tull

Jethro Tull are getting on in years, but therefore not a bit quiet. Even after 40 years on stage, the Rockoldies still let it rip. The musicians can't complain about too little experience, their discography reads like a lavish concert evening. Most of the fans have been loyal to the band for decades: Fans "When I was 14, I went on a sit-in in our little village disco, only Jethro Tull was played and I still like them today. Oh, actually a long story, Bundeswehr 68, 69 A comrade in Goslar - the first time Jetro Tull heard. Bought the LP straight away, stand up and since then always accompanying it. "The role that the electric guitar plays in other groups is taken over by a flute in Jethro Tull and otherwise the band has never had a stamp on them. Music critics still disagree as to whether Jethro Tull stands for "Classic" or "Progressive Rock". But one thing is clear: Jethro Tull has not stopped, the band has continued to develop musically: Ian Anderson Bandleader and founding member (Tonight October 18, 1995) "I think we have more in common with today's rock groups than with our contemporaries. That is perhaps the explanation why we still attract young people. My children's friends are not interested in Phil Collins or Mike and the Mechanics, but rather Nirvana and Pearl Jam, but also Led Zeppelin and Jethro Tull. " Jethro Tull is a band with many companions, the only constants are the guitarist Martin Barre and Ian Anderson, the band leader is also a founding member of the band. Ian Anderson is a multi-talent, he writes songs, plays several instruments and he gives the band a voice. The Scot is over 60 years old and still addicted to music: Ian Anderson Bandleader and founding member "When you're over 30, you'd better collect stamps or raise kids than rock n roll. You're actually too old for that. But it becomes a passion, you can't stop it. " Jethro Tull have released more than 20 albums and have shown many nuances, blues, folk, jazz and hard rock - they have always provided surprises. But Jethro Tull's trademark has remained to this day: Ian Anderson's virtuoso flute playing.
