That was great! That was one U.S. Tour I was sad I missed. I never really heard any tour details that year as they didn't come near my city. But the U.S. tours also included Teacher, Acres Wild and the afforementioned, Whistler.
OK, here's my rant. Having to listen to all the crowd noise, people talking, whistling, whooping and hollering! I'm glad audiences are enthusiastic of the music but I paid to watch and listen to the band, not hear you sing along, bang the chair, blurt out,"We love you, so and so.." and the ever annoying, "woooooooo!!!"
Tull fans are , but for the most part respectul , i.e. old and invalid, but a Genesis show was ruined for me last year because of the same thing. No way did I want to stand up for an entire 2 and half hour show, escecially after forking over $200.00 dollars for a seat.

rabey: Hi John/bunkerfan and Steelmonkey.
May 7, 2019 23:08:40 GMT
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.

rabey: I have to find a better way to post.

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.

rabey: Very Kind, Steelmonkey!
