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.
JTull 007: It's making me smile all the while. Hearing a LIVE version without the studio touches takes a little longer to grasp. I converted the videos to Mp3 and put them on 2 discs with no gaps... Much nicer

onewhiteduck: Someone commented on here that that 'The World Feeds Me' was a bit 'twee'. I think its a great tune and really sat well with the Tull story. Great singing by Anna (I can't spell her name off the top of my head)...... just a catchy tune.

onewhiteduck: ...........and another thing. I love the live version of Witch's Promise from the Opera. Jethro Tull for 2015, evolving 'through the years'. Its all ok its all official.

JTull 007: That's very true... The visuals work well with each tune but something is surreal and beautiful. Now we have a Tull Witch whom lures you to the song with a seductive style. I'm under the spell Unnur is casting...

tootull: Do you wonder if I really care for you, Am I just the company you keep? Which one of us exercises on the old treadmill, Who hides his head, pretending to sleep?
