For example, those who follow the band The Grateful Dead are referred to as "Deadheads".
Can you think for a good moniker for people like you or me?
I tend to prefer 'TULL Dude' in general. I heard an interview in the 70's which referred to 'TULL Freaks'. While being a 'TULL Freak' was not so bad, Rick James made it less appealing in the 80's.
Also, the term 'TULL Chick' was used by some and was even more meaningful back then. If I met a girl that was into TULL... Life was never DULL I'll never forget seeing them dancing during "A Passion Play" back in '73...
We had a guy awhile ago called Tullskull...obvious tribute to deadheads...I like that. Truly, what i have heard most is Tull Freaks...which i don't like. Other optios rather pedestrian: devotees? afficianados? Good ? and we should seek and settle on an offical handle for our ilk. I can use "jew for Jethro' again copying jews for jerry.
There needs to be one invented, because to be honest, the only one I've ever heard in use is "Tull fan", which registers a -0.3 on a 1-10 scale of wit and/or socially communicated clarification. LOL
Surely, something more lively is out there.
When I went to a highschool reunion in 2007, I was asked (for good reason), "so, you still like Tull?" from someone I hadn't seen since highschool, perhaps 1977. So maybe if you hang out with a lot of librarians who compulsively put every detail of every thought and impulse into categorizations all day, you can tell them "with joy I relate that I persist in occasionally listening to music created by a team of musicians known as Jethro Tull. You may have heard of them in your travels.", and you might get invited to their spelling bees.

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

steelmonkey: I still don't feel like I have learned and integrated the 5 songs that were written for the opera. I wonder if and when they will ever be available besides the version snagged from a live show that I listen to now and again.

JTull 007: The Jethro Tull Forum is not on Facebook but there are some called The Jethro Tull Board or Group that have been quite abusive to TRUE TULL Fans. This Forum is very open minded and not so childish.

dryad: Hey, I'm shouting out because I can't figure out how to post in the "Hello, I'm new Here!" post. I cam over here looking for Samhain songs. I'll roll with "Songs From the Wood" if no one knows of something specific. I'll do the hello if I can figure it out
