My God by Jethro Tull (know it by any chance? ) on Last.fm Jethro Tull radio. Last.fm is really great to exchange music and listen to your golden oldies, you should check it out if youre not allready on there
Don't tell anyone that the Division Bell could easily pass as my favourite Floyd album.
Been to all the Toronto/Hamilton area Floyd shows. The bass was the lowest/loudest I've ever heard on the Division Bell tour. I play Pink Floyd as regular as the mighty Tull. No doubt. Other than Tull "MU" & "Repeat" I'm listening to The Guess Who remasters these days. Eh. I can also be accused of playing too much Beatles/Wings. Supertramp albums. ELO is sneaking about too.
Flook is a great choice and I think they also have used the Pat Olwell bamboo flute like IA at some time or another if not still. I am having a brew and listening to a little Carlos Nunez on the stereo atm.
That was good - I know nowt about the music of Oz at anytime really over the years. Not sure about Tull's history in Oz either Where are all the Australian fans? ;D

"My God Tull have to be the most INCREDIBLE band to hit our shoes since The Beatles! Last week Tull completely stunned Australian audiences with their concert performances. Many words could be used to describe the leader of the group, Ian Anderson. Lets start with GENIUS and throw in MASTER OF SHOWMANSHIP, the second WIZARD OF OZ, the most lunatic of MUSIC MASTERS, HYPNOTIST, a brilliant flautist, superb singer, the idiot CONDUCTOR. Never have I enjoyed a concert more."
"I was able to see them in concert three times. The crowds in Melbourne and Auckland were the most responsive that I’ve seen for a long time and I believe in Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane they were very much the same. But how could you not respond to the music they’ve been playing."
ash: Merry Christmas. Hey Santa pass me that bottle

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?
