Jethro Tull thmbIan Anderson is a man who needs little introduction. As the main driving force behind the music of Jethro Tull for nigh on half a century, he is a legendary figure and one of the giants of the rock era.

Luckily the man himself (Ian Anderson not old Jethro) was on hand to ‘re-imagine’ matters and explain them to Uber Rock’s receptive and recitative Michael Anthony.
