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.

tootull: There's a picture-view postcard to say that I called. You can see from the fireplace, one white duck on your wall. Isn't it just too damn real? One white duck on your wall.

tootull: Eight miles high and falling fast It landed foul on the grass The players tried for a forward pass With the jester on the sidelines in a cast

tootull: Of lame ducks & American Pie - a note to the NFL = The players tried for a forward pass, but the ball was out of gas.

JTull 007: I dislike both teams in the S... Bowl. One (Seattle) has no class. The other (New England) cheats and has no class.

tootull: Today's choice;>) (Of Ian Anderson's beautiful lyrics)= But I didn't say a word, as the train time-table blurred close behind the taxi stand. Saw her face in the tear-drop black cab window. Fading into the traffic; watched her go. (beautifully sung)

nonrabbit: Too cold for mountain climbing,vinyl holding ducks and non rabbits who sit and contemplate what life must be like living nearer the Equator.

JTull 007: What would Homo Erraticus would do? (WWHED) He got flooded out of Doggerland. Taken over by Romans and technology. Perhaps a trip to the mountains is still possible.

nonrabbit: Your setting a scene there Jim. Duck up a mountain clutching his vinyl,a shadowy figure in the background with long coat and pitchfork. Very album cover-like

futureshock: Q: What day of the week was Saturday in Doggerland, and how many days of the week did they use back then? These are important Saturday issues for me.

steelmonkey: Everyday was a new day yesterday in those days.
