Short but interesting piece......I always wondered why Anderson wanted to go his own way. Not really explained but I suppose as one gets old you change your ways.
Nice to see that Barre is doing his own thing and happy with it but it's a shame that there can't be some Tull in there some where from time to time in between doing their solo things.

I've lost a lot of respect for Ian over the last several years, I think, starting with that whole TAAB2 thing -- an alright album in many respects but utterly lacking any of the amazing instrumentality and genuine wit of the original, as well as omitting the band members who made Thick as a Brick tick. They might as well have used a metronome in place of drums on TAAB2, particularly when compared to the fire of Barrie Barlow, and the leads sounded like someone desperately trying to emulate Martin Barre. Ian used hired hands at union scale for TAAB2, on the original they were all family and friends, and the differences are stark. Even Gerald Bostock was a downer the second go-round.
 
Ian came to the Detroit area this year billed as Jethro Tull. I didn't waste my money.

but if they did, you (collective PA you) would all knock them for going on way too long and not hanging it up sooner.
 
Yes tours, you say they're past it. Tull doesn't tour and you say that's a shame. That glass is permanently half-empty, now isn't it?

The real question is, will The Who still tour after the last two guys are dead?

Agree. Here in Brazil its impossible to Ian came and not be billed as Jethro Tull, because no one know that Martin Barre has left/was cast out. Sad... and I spend my money to see him. Twice.

About the interview: "I don’t want a Jethro Tull band. I need to write music. I need some power, some respect, some kudos. Then maybe I can come up with the idea of doing a world tour with all the original people of Jethro Tull."

YOU GO MARTIN! I'am almost certain that I will not like 100% of his new Back to Steel, but understanding this new phase, the necessity of building up a persona, etc... the effort counts A LOT.
