The man behind Jethro Tull is flute player and vocalist Ian Anderson. This morning he appeared on the BBC's Breakfast
TV programme where he explained the original Thick As A Brick
to talking heads Bill Turnbull and Susanna Reid. And the follow up. Although Anderson still has a beard, his hair is a bit thin, but the talent is still there and the fire still burns.
Some background information to Jethro Tull can be found on the band's website
- where else? Like their fellow British rockers UFO
, Jethro Tull have been around since the 1960s.
Currently, the man from SongFacts
has 12 Jethro Tull recordings in his database
, including, arguably their best known song, Living In The Past
