The Progressive Rock band I would like to feature today is Blackpool's finest: Jethro Tull.
Where was I? Blackpool.
Yes funnily enough they are the one Prog band I have seen the most. Once at The Garden Party in Milton Keynes Bowl, once at Tutbury Castle in Staffordshire and two or is it three times at Manchester Apollo?
They are are a great band live with Folk, Blues , heavy and Prog Rock all thrown in. Not forgetting the main front man and flautist Ian Anderson.
Named after an English Agriculturalist and inventor of the seed drill.
In the seventies they were massive and even had their own ship to cart their gear and themselves round Europe.
Here's one of my favourite tracks. Enjoy.
Did you ever see Tull live? I saw Martin Barre and his new band at A New Day Festival last year in Kent. It seems like a life time. When you could jump in a car, fly on a plane, catch a train, go on the Tube, catch another train to Canterbury and then catch a bus to near Faversham and walk down some country lanes to Mount Ephraim gardens in beautiful Kent, the garden of England. Have a great weekend folks.
