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.
geostrehl: Do you guys and gals think Ian likes Steely Dan? I've been thinking about this recently. Ian has stated that he doesn't listen to much music, but I'm sure he's heard a lot of the Dan.

tryin2b: Hi Geostrehl U gotta luv Steely.have u heard "everything must go"? but i gotta say as a player, I don't feel the same groove. It's the difference between Cajun and Appallacian. I love them both

geostrehl: Everything Must Go is a fantastic album. Behind Tull, Steely Dan is my fav. It's busy and complicated, but not in a prog way (like Tull), but more in a jazz way. I just wonder what Ian thinks of Donald Fagen, and the other way around.

nonrabbit: Steely Dan were a huge part of my teenage years in the early 70's. Had every album - listened daily - dreamed of seeing them Live.
