I know the codpiece generated a lot of negative feedback form outisde the church...but damn, that's a real Tull shot....1975 was a VERY good year.
The Codpiece got an airing even earlier than 75.
Yeah. The sensible codpiece years, 72 and 3. Though I did not think so at the time the 74 and 5 look do now fill me with a lower case embarrassment, particularly when sharing images outside the ranks. Ditto the well shaped hair of 74 and 5, minor case geekazoik, or golly, you must be one of those rock and roll stars huh mister? I do recall that guy in Black Oak Arkansas wore almost the identical tights and codpiece, and with that music, that was truly something better left in its moments, or never seen at all. I get a similar ill buzz off of Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead's short shorts years in the 80's. Would not think jack of that one, as it was a common look at the time, even on NBA and college basketball players. But I have one friend on Facebook who never fails to make mention of it when I post a video from that era, it has actually put me off posting a few. I do recall few if any of the women in the audience minded...at all.
From a RollingStone concert review published in January 1977, when they published their large format newspaper, I bought a copy (at an airport, I remember that much) and having discovered photography from living in British Columbia (years later, it must have been), for some reason I decided to take a large format photograph of the full-page concert review of Tull. I attach the image of the negative, which measures 4x3 inches, a monster of detail. At one point I had ordered a 16x20 inch print of it, but that print is long ago lost. However, I JUST YESTERDAY found the original negative! In perfect condition, held in a paper protective sleeve as good negatives should be. I offer this up as the latest entry in the TULL LOST AND FOUND BIN. NOTE: I immediately and have always disagreed with the reviewers summation that Anderson was presenting a "carefully choreographed contempt" (as said in the review). I think TULL was quite obviously a "large arena act" that was designed to be successful, and with that comes certain kinds of adjustments that maybe the reviewer hasn't considered. Having been to some of the largest arena/forum concerts available, I can also understand if some characters get way out of hand and artists do feel contempt for them. Whatever.
steelmonkey: Thank You for interview and interview sharing. Very Cool.

nonrabbit: Hello Futureshock! Great to hear from you. Hope you're staying healthy too....a metre apart from any other human (animal?) that tries to cross you path. I'm a librarian in a public library and we've asking people to make a diary of their experiences.....

chester: Do any of you [my fellow JT Forum members] miss watching live sporting events on TV, because of the virus, as much as I do?

steelmonkey: I miss reading about the Golden State Warriors and St Pauli in the second Bundesliga. I keep an eye on the baseball 'A's and the Brazil team, Botoafogo. My EPL Team is Tot Spurs and I take the time to hate two teams :HSV in Germany and Man United.

maddogfagin: Miss the sport on tv especially the football and now that summer is upon us the cricket. I fear that things will take a year or two to get back to how it was before all this shenanigans.

steelmonkey: I miss some watching and reading about sports but not enough to suddenly get interested in the Belarus Football League or Taiwanese baseball. Fans are going pretty far for a fix.

chester: I don't watch very much BUNDESLIGA, but it has returned after two months, with NO FANS allowed in the stadiums. I am starting to follow UFC mixed martial arts, which has returned as well.

botanicman: Chester, The Plague has made me realize how little I actually do care about sports. I might not spend the time to watch when they do return!

pbinlostangeles: For us in So Cal, first time since 1974 no Long Beach Grand Prix and - apparently - no Indy 500. At least not on Memorial Day. Hopefully, they'll get this virus crud figured out before the start of MotoGP season

chester: NASCAR has restarted it's 2020 season but, like German soccer, to empty grandstands. I think catching a virus is low on the list of dangers that can befall a racing car driver.

chester: I know that I am late to the idea, but I have started wearing a mask while out in public. My Canadian officials have changed their stance from: not recommended to mildly suggested to strongly advised.
