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.
zendad: David Goodier...... does anyone know why David Goodier isn't playing on the current tour? And who is his replacement?

rredmond: Two tickets to Martin Barre... excellent!

tootull: Martin Barre was in Jethro Tull...right Jim, enjoy!

tootull: Couldn`t resist. - the never ending punchline I love SLOB, Martin Barre is on that one, too. HOORAY!
Apr 25, 2015 15:02:34 GMT
JTull 007: Martin is not a SLOB... His wife makes sure he keeps his guitars and strings very clean.

tootull: I know the feeling. Seems all too contrived. There was no master plan, but the fact is: ...The truth of the matter, yet to be spoken in words on which everything, everything's riding.

JTull 007: My place used to look like "El Niño" had blown through till I got married...Hmmm? I wonder if Martin could play those riffs for me next December. Imagine what Ian would think? Just guitars, bass and drums...Wow!
