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.
onewhiteduck: Minstrel yn yr Oriel yn un o fy hoff ganeuon Jethro Tull. Mae'r iaith Gymraeg yn well na Ffrangeg. Mae'n sexy a rhamantus iawn !!. Un Hwyaden Gwyn.

maddogfagin: Google translation: Minstrel in the Gallery is one of my favourite songs of Jethro Tull . The Welsh language is better than French. It is very sexy and romantic !! . One White Duck .

JTull 007: It's a... difficult responsibility That he extract from the number-one law keeper, me. Be it known throughout the land from sea to sea..There'll be no more Jethro Tull when Ian sings!

tootull: Tull are hereby declared illegal, immoral, unlawful, and anyone with a Tull album in their possession will be placed under arrest and thrown under the seed drill. No kidding. Only Ian Anderson albums allowed throughout the land.

frida: I'm just listening to MADDY PRIOR's "Women In The Wings" album - and there is some more flute on tracks 7 and 9 (right at their beginnings). I can't find any credits for these parts! Can anyone help?
Feb 28, 2015 13:06:22 GMT
frida: The flute bit on track 9 is from Ian, I would bet. But the one on track 7 sound a bit too classically played...
Feb 28, 2015 13:07:41 GMT
Aqualung1989: Hmmmm I recall reading Ian played flute in two tracks from a Maddy Prior album, but right now I can't really tell you which album and which songs

tootull: Wings? Again? McCartney before Wings by request: "we're so sorry, uncle albert, but we haven't done a bloody thing all day. We're so sorry, uncle albert, but the kettle's on the boil And we're so eas'ly called away."

Tull50: Tootull:In relation to your last post(Translate this) I forgot to write several of the notes that I had taken...Puncture would be pricks, musically speaking a fall in his musical career or a bad album. Sunday Cheers!
