The 60's. An era of great cultural change in the UK. Musically, the many changes included The Beatles, the Stones, offshore radio with Radio London, Radio Caroline et al and err . . . . Jethro Tull Rant over. I could go on about the 60's till the cows come home
Cherry or Apple pie, with or without custard/clotted cream.
No disrespect to our Scottish/Irish pals, but a good wine every time. I love a good wine, wine about the weather, Spurs losing...... oh sorry, the stuff that comes out of a bottle? I drink that as well.
I wish i understood QI vs Mock the Week...more top secret brit-stuff? Anyway...Gene Wilder and his oompa Loompas or Johnny Depp and Multiple Deep Roy Oompa loompas?...My kid led me thru both movies in the past wek and i must say, despite some good moments in the old one, i think Johnny D and the second version was much, much better....better Willie W, better Charlie, better grand...pa, better other kids and better oompa L's.....a few of the lower tech chocalate factory scenes were better in the first.
Musically it's a tie...like which of your kids do you love most...of course, i only have one child...maybe some of you parents secretly love one, hate the other(s)...so Locomotive Breath wins because the topic of life/death/god/destiny is heftier than rich man-poor man in Aqualung.
Very difficult to answer MadDog, a musical hero, sporting hero or maybe somebody from show biz. If I had to choose just one person, it would be dear old Spike Milligan. This is the third time dear old Spike has appeared in this subject and I'm glad about that. Revolutionized comedy not quite single handed etc., etc.

rabey: Hi John/bunkerfan and Steelmonkey.

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.
