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.

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.

FrontDoorAngel: If any of us haven't been reading the Bostock Diaries (guilty as charged until just a moment ago), you must read them! Ian's writing is brilliant there.

FrontDoorAngel: "She could have been sweet seventeen/ There again well so could I/ There was a tear drop sparkle/ On the inside of her thigh/ Going to fetch myself a cold beer/ I've got to get a grip/ Find some place to touch down/ Find a landing strip..." Naughty!

JTull 007: She's only seventeen (seventeen), daddy says she's too young, but she's old enough for me (seventeen) She's everything I need (seventeen), daddy says she's too young But she's old enough, old enough for me

maddogfagin: Wishing you were seventeen. At twenty-one, it was a long time gone.

JTull 007: I really wish to be 16 one more time. Then I would buy every TULL shirt and poster from the 1973 tour.
