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.

fluteinthegallery: If I had to put my love for Tull in to one word, it would be "everything". This band means everything to me.
Jul 15, 2019 3:59:50 GMT
steelmonkey: I would agree. I love music, I love rock and roll but my love for Tull is it's own category and bigger than the other two,

snaffler: I haven't listened to anything as refreshing for decades (re Jethro Tull), as a couple of recordings of Martin's 50th Anniversary US tour! The songs sound so reinvigorated by Dan Crisp's vocals. I saw Martin last year and the vibe in the band seemed great
