Meh. Alright. The flute works suprisingly well, i'll admit.

I guess his invention of the seed drill was pretty important... :p:

Jethrol Tull is only the name of the band, Ian Anderson is the flautist/flutist (the best in the world IMO) and also the dude I got my name from. Anderson writes most of the music, sings, plays flute, some acoustic guitar I think, and has a few solo albums as well.

Saw Tull live last summer, and Martin Barre is pretty damn good guitarist.

Jethro Tull are my favorite classic rock band, definitely.

Everyone should get the Christmas Album while they're at it, there is some awesome stuff on there.

Great band, and Ian Anderson is a genius

My dad's side of the family are all music freaks/intellectuals and my mom's side is all redneck/hill billy so I'm only half-lucky. :p:

I wouldn't call them metal (at least not on the 10 cds that I have) but dang are they good. I love playing their acoustic stuff.

Don't hold a grudge against a good band just because an ignorant committee selected them as best heavy metal band.

If Vai or Yngwie or Marty Friedman were selected as "best bluegrass performer", you wouldn't all of the sudden hold a grudge against them, would you? Didn't think so...

That's called cutting your nose off in spite of your face.

Yeah, and locomotive breath/aqualung/random radio hit beats most metallica songs too.

It's a metaphor. You wouldn't cut your nose off just because you don't like your face. Don't hold a grudge against JT just because they won best heavy metal award. (I think :p: )

Yeah i like them as a band, I like the different styles of the various albums, prog rock, hard rock, folk rock, blues rock- they can do 'em all.

Speaking of Flutes in bands, Wolfmother has a pretty badass song called Witchcraft off their Wolfmother album. The flute solo reminded me of Jethro, the riffs are a bit heaveir then the usual Jethro but overall it's pretty close I think.

i saw these guys in 2000 or 2001, cant remember.

I was in row 7. The show was amazing.

I particularly love the flute solo in "My God", as well as "songs from the wood"
