The 60's. An era of great cultural change in the UK. Musically, the many changes included The Beatles, the Stones, offshore radio with Radio London, Radio Caroline et al and err . . . . Jethro Tull Rant over. I could go on about the 60's till the cows come home
Cherry or Apple pie, with or without custard/clotted cream.
No disrespect to our Scottish/Irish pals, but a good wine every time. I love a good wine, wine about the weather, Spurs losing...... oh sorry, the stuff that comes out of a bottle? I drink that as well.
I wish i understood QI vs Mock the Week...more top secret brit-stuff? Anyway...Gene Wilder and his oompa Loompas or Johnny Depp and Multiple Deep Roy Oompa loompas?...My kid led me thru both movies in the past wek and i must say, despite some good moments in the old one, i think Johnny D and the second version was much, much better....better Willie W, better Charlie, better grand...pa, better other kids and better oompa L's.....a few of the lower tech chocalate factory scenes were better in the first.
Musically it's a tie...like which of your kids do you love most...of course, i only have one child...maybe some of you parents secretly love one, hate the other(s)...so Locomotive Breath wins because the topic of life/death/god/destiny is heftier than rich man-poor man in Aqualung.
Very difficult to answer MadDog, a musical hero, sporting hero or maybe somebody from show biz. If I had to choose just one person, it would be dear old Spike Milligan. This is the third time dear old Spike has appeared in this subject and I'm glad about that. Revolutionized comedy not quite single handed etc., etc.
jackinthegreen: Cream without Eric??? Santana without Carlos?? and not even with a stand-in player.....you're easily pleased, I reckon most people would not be happy to say the least...

jackinthegreen: If it was Scott that got Covid would they have played the gigs without a drummer?

ash: It's Tull not Cream and my answer stands. Now it there was no flute player...No flute no Tull . I've seen Ian play with just an ipod backing track it was great

jackinthegreen: "No flute, no Tull".......hmmmm tell that to MB when he's doing all the Tull stuff..
May 3, 2022 20:18:27 GMT
jackinthegreen: and I've seen Ian doing his one man thing with just the backing track too, but that's not billed as a Jethro Tull concert.....
May 3, 2022 20:19:44 GMT
jackinthegreen: I do agree he's brilliant at playing to his own backing tracks though

ash: My first answer stands in stone

goodwolfman38: Just around the corner from what i understand will be the 40th anniversary edition of Broadsword & The Beast due in July, as i noticed a few weeks ago with an interview with Ian this one will be large box set, hopefully no delays

jackinthegreen: Cheers MD, I can only see the link from the "Home" page, but disappears when looking at threads etc, so find if I open it up in a new window it then plays constantly
May 15, 2022 13:29:06 GMT
jackinthegreen: So I have it bookmarked to open at any time....nice in the background if reading on t'internet

jackinthegreen: Did anyone on the forum see Tull at the De Montfort Hall in Leicester in September.....

smint100: Good Lord, why did no one tell me about the radio.net! I've spent a joyful afternoon in the garden watching the strawberries ripen - I mean, editing a book - and listening to unadulterated Tull. Heaven!
