Phideaux rules! I interviewed him once a few years back and he's a big Tull-head. TaaB and APP were his first ever concerts and both records rank in his top 10. By day, he's one of the director on General Hospital; by night - a modern progressive rock hero! This album (Snowtorch) is probably his best, but I also highly recommend Doomsday Afternoon and Number 7.

Thanks! Glad you've all enjoyed it :-) I've been a Tull fan since Catfish Rising was released...I was about sixteen back then. Can't wait to see IA perform Homo Erraticus live in Utrecht at May 12th :-)
Was Velvet Green the right answer to the song Aqualung 89 shared ? More than easy...I bit of a rip-off. maybe some musicians think Tull is more obscure than they are and they can get away with it...or was this more or less acknowledged ?

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

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!

ash: Is anyone aware of a recent statement from Ian saying he doesn't have COPD and it's only asthma? Just asking

rredmond: I thought it was both?

ash: One can be mistaken for the other because of similar symptoms but COPD is the nasty one! I'm talking an updated statement from Ian early this year.

marshall: Hello, I was at the concert at De Montfort Hall in September along with a number of other shows. I try to get to as many as possible in the UK.

jackinthegreen: Thank-you marshall I travelled down from Scotland for the Marillion Weekend there, great venue isn't it! It was standing downstairs, I guess the Tull gig was all seated....did they sell out? Please join in on the forum threads! Cheers

marshall: No need to thank me by the way. I was a member of this Forum some year's ago but I forgot my log in details. I will do my best to contribute. I have been a Full can since the early singles and I have some fabulous memories as well as tales to tell.

jackinthegreen: In that case welcome back marshall. I am a Full can too....if that's rhyming slang for Tull fan

steelmonkey: My new. secret, self identity: Full Can. California Cockney rhyming slang? Why not?

ash: "California Cockney rhyming slang? Why not?" Many reasons if your family has Cockney routes

steelmonkey: People my age learned of it and some of it from 'A Clockwork Orange', way back when.
Jul 4, 2022 2:05:35 GMT
steelmonkey: And I was taught that Tull members and crew called us civilian fans 'Billies' for Billy Bunter = Punter.

ash: My granddad would use Cockney rhyming slang now and then, more so if he was having a Darby. I will let him off seeing as he was born about half a mile from St Mary-le-Bow church.
