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.
maddogfagin: Must admit I do like Sweet Dream and Witch's Promise in their original form - reminds me constantly of buying them from the local record shop and then rushing home to play them as if they were illicit goods that nobody else should know I had

futureshock: So I guess they removed the live chat feature on this website. Just as well. I opened it on about 10 different occasions and there was never anyone using it. So sayeth the raven, nevermore, nevermore. Now back to ice hockey.

JTull 007: It's been awhile but I see it on Me Tv on some nights. I liked the show and the song was catchy by John Sebastian.
