I have a channel on Youtube, where I go by the name Ian Trevor. I chose the name because it sounded so much like a guitarist's name. I was shocked to discover no matches for that name on Google. I have not searched for some years now, so I suppose there may be other Ian Trevors out there.
Bear in mind, my music was all recorded from 1999-2000, on a Yamaha MT4X cassette recorder. I had a toy drum machine that was not programmable, so all the drum tracks are monotonous. Nonetheless, I had a good guitar and an excellent effects processor - all explained in the vids - and I think by and large I did a fair job with what I had.
Note: This music is, save for one song, instrumental. Mostly I just laid down some simple riffage and provided myself an excellent excuse to solo to my heart's and fingers' content. If you don't care for electric guitar solos, don't even bother checking the tracks out.
The music ranges from very soft ambient music, to jazzy, to bluesy, to out and out heavy metal. There are vox on one song, "Child Again". The lyrics are available. I was doing my best Roger Waters impression.
The songs are mercifully short and the volume is LOW, since the tracks are converted to hard-disk from cassette. Some of the tracks have glitches and blank spaces due to pressing the wrong buttons during transfer.
Listen or don't, at your own peril.
I will, however, love you all the more if you take a listen! lol!

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.
