Who's Andy Timmons??

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

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.

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 God, it's full of stars!

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.

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 )

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"
