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.
And the slightly preposterous, over-the-top idea that you can cram 8,040 years of history into 52 minutes, why mess about? Get on with it – do something challenging.
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.
nonrabbit: Whatever had the shortest queue. Did both get the elbow greeting or did the latter get the withering look?

steelmonkey: Response from Tull's henchmen to my smiling face ranged from " That guy is a VIP' to 'NO'

steelmonkey: If I was alone in a small, European town, without a camera, I practically sat in Ian's lap before and after gig. If I showed up with new girlfriend who suspected my 'friend of Tull tales' were fantasies, they chased me away with no sign of recognition.

Sept 12, 2014 15:19:41 GMT
steelmonkey: It could only be improved if you were there...Hey, isn't Canada close to Seattle and the space needle ?
Sept 12, 2014 15:38:31 GMT
tootull: Bigger grins? Closer to the CN Tower. With Anderson/Tull on a boombox.
Sept 12, 2014 15:53:37 GMT
tootull: Watch out for those solar flares to celebrate the arrival of that Tull god, Ian Anderson - like fireworks, only bigger! DUCK & wave!
