Careful...dragging in Ian's family...especially wife and daughter is a good way to evaporate any good will we have with him and, maybe, get a hit put out on you...perhaps we should drop the subject, no?
Great photos, I never seen before. Thanks for posting. Personally, for better or for worse I am interested in Ian's personal life. This man has been quite a player in my life, all be it not directly. It is natural to take an interest.
Great phots of ian and family at home!!!! The sight of Shona, barely dressed, was available during the War Child tour when she brought Ian his flute in Sea Lion trainer/dominatrix gear...pretty much panties, jacket and top-hat!
By the way, the first photo. Open white door to the left. Isn't that the studio?
Yes, that was the studio through that door at Pophleys, their old Buckinghamshire home near Radnage. They had a working farm called Grange Farm about 3-5 miles away where Kenny Wylie had his office and the tour props etc were stored.
In most cases, my favorite Jethro Tull songs will be determined by how I feel about them as live performance songs, not by the recorded identity.
I think I found a photo of Gael but I think it's from 2006. Scroll down to see the girl with the spikey hair.I forgot how to upload photos or I would have just posted it here. She looks a lot like brother, James.

backdoorangel: Thanks, JTull 007 for the great conversation! Good to know there are such rational, decent folk out there who are also diehard Tullians. And thanks for pointing me to this board after my floundering about on another board with zero response to my posts!

JTull 007: Welcome again to Backdoorangel I may scare a few Chat Groops out there but I always try to see both sides. In this place, we all learn from each other and there is no DOGMA. Except in Armenia

backdoorangel: In and out of the back door ran one front door angel... Maybe I should've called myself that instead? Back-door has all those negative connotations! Just ruminating...

JTull 007: I believe you are always able to modify your name here. I used to be JTull07 until I realized how much fun I could have driving an Aston Martin DB5.
