hello my first real post and I ask a question, sorry, I hope you don't mind. When I was in London I listened to this with friends on a recording. I am not sure as interview was on phone it seemed and was I think longer than this, was it not? I thought interview was quite aggressive, although I think interviewer did good job of picking Ians balloons. Ian seemed to be very angry at times with interviewer on phone. he can not be an easy man to work for I think.I mean Ian not interviewer. Do you have the other parts of the interview? Did you know you can upload longer files to youtube, I think interview was only ten minutes or there, and it would be good for all fans toi hear Ian's anger at interviewer don't you think? Lefteris
The interview was much longer....more to follow as it will chooped up into you tube size pieces...The part you have heard so far is just a sample of how ian spanked me numerous times...but it was fun...I am a fan...not a journalist...by the end it was quite friendly and at the very end, during conversation that was not put into the radio show, he was very friendly, said he remembered me from years back and was extrememly kind and nice. Alls well that ends well !

rabey: Thanks for the interest. Unfortunately because Ian/Tull is doing his own book when I sent a request to find John I got stonewalled, even though I have a signed contract by Ian from 2013 stating I was doing a DVD version of The book. I also have had trouble

rabey: I guess after 5 years Ian forgot this even existed. Imean, he never even listed my book with all the other books that have been out of print for decades, yet mine and Tim S still have books in print and we're not mentioned.

rabey: I just get the impression that this AND having just dealt with Tull are all they care about really and it peeves me when the truth is when I first got my original contract with a US publisher to write the book with quotes on 3 other books on ELP,Crimson,

rabey: and YES, I contacted both Martin and Dave from AND and offered involvement in writing and photography. but Dave said no interest and martin was happy to get his photos printed just for credit. Later Daves book arrived and martin wanted 100 bucks a shot.

rabey: Anyway, The publisher refused the cost of photos, Martin wrote the only negative review of the book in print except for Amazon where a few stinkers stalled it's movement, but basically there was nothing advertising the book outside the UK.

steelmonkey: Fights about history, public knowledge and more personally researched knowledge are pretty hard to untangle...but nothing takes away your contributions to total Tull information.
