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!
maddogfagin: I would guess that with the "recognition" he's now got with the association with IA he'll be in demand for session and production work. Maybe he could be asked to remix the later Tull albums after Stormwatch if SW hasn't the time.

sealion: Mmm, my Signature copy arrived yesterday and I've now got most of the way through it. It's certainly a lovely book but worth the £275?

sealion: Essentially we're paying £235 for a number, a 7" vinyl (which, let's be honest, isn't that great), 2 art prints, IA's autograph and a box. Oh yes, and my name listed in the back. A pair of tickets for the 2020 tour would've been a nice gesture....

sealion: Do I regret it? Not really, because it's Jethro Tull, but, perversely,I probably would've done if I'd only gone for the cheaper version! That said I'm not sure how the price difference between the two versions can be justified...

sealion: Jethro Tull the prog years? So it's Passion Play in it's entirety then!

steelmonkey: Got new job, starting Feb 3,2020, Tull book and Stormwatch, all just in time for Thanksgiving. Prsent and promise to self: Catch up on Tull forum this weekend. Fair warning: reviews and rants/raves/nonsense looming like the big bear cover of Stormwatch.
