Byres Road, Glasgow Long velvet kaftan for my 15th birthday Tull @ the Apollo Deep Purple @apollo Reading Festival - August and Ian (not Anderson) for a short while
living in Bishop Auckland, Co Durham My 23rd Birthday Tull @ The ABC Stockton on Tees Married in May Honeymoon Kinross and Edinburgh 4th test at Headingley England v Australia. England won by 9 wickets Working as a pipe fitter installing and repairing fire protection equipment. That's all I can remember.
And who comes here to wish me well? A sweetly-scented angel fell, She laid her head upon my disbelief, And bathed me with her ever-smile.
Tull in May and November. Before my first job so I am sure even those were a struggle, hopefully not with an assist from my Mother's unguarded purse. A friend who's family owned some enormous bakery brought me to see Black Sabbath in about August of that year. Just when I was going cold on that avenue, but not to the extent I would eventually. The continued popularity of Black Sabbath is one of several examples to me of the de evolution of consciousness over the years, not that it was ever anything close to good. Grade school evil. Those folks and all that travel in that video game world will be in for a real surprise when they deal with the real thing. (Sort of like the be this gung or be this ho poor bastard from Old School Song who came upon a reality very unlike those TV commercials as he travesed into the Wooten Bassett reality) Re even if I liked the likes of Iron Maiden, their record covers alone would be enough for me to say...next.
72: Friends with Driver's licenses, beer, kiddie wine, weed rolled in multi-color, flavored rolling papers, CSN, Dylan, Allman brothers, Grateful Dead, Deep Purple, War, Jethro Tull the last day of the year and....oh yeah....PUBERTY.

rabey: Hi John/bunkerfan and Steelmonkey.
May 7, 2019 23:08:40 GMT
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.

rabey: I have to find a better way to post.

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.

rabey: Very Kind, Steelmonkey!
