Phideaux rules! I interviewed him once a few years back and he's a big Tull-head. TaaB and APP were his first ever concerts and both records rank in his top 10. By day, he's one of the director on General Hospital; by night - a modern progressive rock hero! This album (Snowtorch) is probably his best, but I also highly recommend Doomsday Afternoon and Number 7.

Thanks! Glad you've all enjoyed it :-) I've been a Tull fan since Catfish Rising was released...I was about sixteen back then. Can't wait to see IA perform Homo Erraticus live in Utrecht at May 12th :-)
Was Velvet Green the right answer to the song Aqualung 89 shared ? More than easy...I bit of a rip-off. maybe some musicians think Tull is more obscure than they are and they can get away with it...or was this more or less acknowledged ?

crosseyedmary75: 2,000 years later, we have His words. We know what He said. Ian sang, And the all-time winner Has got him by the balls He picks up Gideons Bible Open at page one, I thank God he stole the handle and the train it won't stop going Headlong to his death. Why?

crosseyedmary75: Thanks for the welcome. Thanks to Martin and to each well-wisher for the season and the new year. How cool is it to share our appreciation for the greatest band of all time! TULL fans must also be unique. We know this group of men is a most special gift

maddogfagin: Feel the same way about "Budapest" - who else but IA could have composed that song.

steelmonkey: I love Budapest,too...but to answer your question, Knopfler came damn close with 'Private Investigations' !
