    Maybe it wins Grammy(sorry, had to).
    Point taken. The only thing that made this person somehow relevant is being the UNWORTHY winner of that Grammy Award. At least, Metallica took the stealing as their motivation to create the "Black Album".
    Man, i never said anything bad about them.They are good band, but this is one of those jokes you just have to do.Sorry if i offended you.
    Wow... you do know who Jethro Tull are, right? One of the biggest selling and most influential British bands to come out of the 60s and 70s, right? One of the only bands who were an important part of the 60s Blues revival, the early 70s Prog Rock scene, and the mid-70s Folk scene? Aqualung? Thick As A Brick? A New Day Yesterday? Any of that a-ringing a bell?

    You have no idea what your talking about do you? Yes, the grammy's are a farce, but Jethro Tull are awesome and have been a major influence on your beloved Metallica and Iron Maiden. With Iron Maiden covering the song "Cross-eyed Mary".This is great news.
