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.
And the slightly preposterous, over-the-top idea that you can cram 8,040 years of history into 52 minutes, why mess about? Get on with it – do something challenging.
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.
tootull: Stormwatch is a great listen, (easy to get addicted to) - atmospheric like some of Homo Erraticus

steelmonkey: I remember leaving the house to go out into the SF night, in 1979, the lyrics of Orion guiding my every move, it felt like.

maddogfagin: HE and Stormwatch could be cousins or even closer family members

jackinthegreen: Sorry but Martin Barre at the Italian Convection ......

jackinthegreen: Not for me Martin, not even a good tribute band, and I have loved Tull since 1969.....

onewhiteduck: I have to agree, The Martin Barre Band could be so much more, driving blues rock, not rehashed Tull stuff.

steelmonkey: Listen for Martin Barre utter, unique guitar voice magic in 'The Big Top'.....something in there related to: Son, Locomotive Breath and, above all, Critique Oblique.

steelmonkey: Will we one day look back and explain to our descendants: ' and then the APP remix killed the wandering man ' ?

maddogfagin: They'll give us 110% for our taste in music

JTull 007: Actually the Wandering Man has made the APP remix even more successful. For younger fans that are learning about new TULL, they can find out what made us Older TULL Fans so crazy...
Jul 21, 2014 20:00:05 GMT
maddogfagin: And so say all of us. It certainly makes this old(ish) Tull fan happy
Jul 22, 2014 8:04:16 GMT
JTull 007: I would love to party in Germany with so many great Tull Fans! Beer and great music always go together.
Jul 26, 2014 12:22:45 GMT
JTull 007: In truth I would love to hang out in every country and have a Tull Party. Just a dream for now.
Jul 26, 2014 17:48:39 GMT
maddogfagin: But what a splendid dream
Jul 26, 2014 19:37:10 GMT
Equus: A sweet dream... If I may say so...
Jul 27, 2014 19:28:56 GMT
Equus: Sometimes I'm a rover, but when I'm an owl, I prefer to wear women's clothing...

steelmonkey: Got a tour of Google headquarters today ( friend amongst first employees) Wow...any parody of adult summer camp you can imagine for Google campus doesn't touch the reality. A surreal, out of control, daycare/playpen for grown ups.

JTull 007: I want to thank Google for translating all the languages which may or may not make sense. It's about 90% right.
