Ian Anderson Schools Us On Jethro Tull

Jethro Tull sits in some pretty good company among the Great Bands of Rock and Roll History who’ve been utterly and completely snubbed by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame…they’ve been eligible for 23 years now, and never so much as a nomination. Which of course does not reflect well on the rock hall in Cleveland. Hello? Cleveland?

There are still some who will address the band’s creative genius Ian Anderson as “Jethro” or “Mr. Tull”, but Friday night in the Moore Theater he’ll introduce us to the real Jethro Tull. Sort of.

He’s made him the focus of what Pete Townsend would call a “rock opera”, a multi-media extravaganza that brings the powdered wig wearing inventor of the “seed drill” into the 21st Century…and it includes most of Ian’s rock classics!

I got the chance to talk with him from his Portland hotel room coming out of the bullpen for Gary Crow…

Oh and if you miss the show Friday night….and you like driving…he’ll be at the Northern Quest Resort in Spokane…
