Having made a few posts now, I thought I should make one in this section, so hello! I'm obviously new here but have been a Tull fan for a long time now, one of the constants in my life, an old friend of sorts. The second, I suppose was ELP as Keith Emerson was such a standard to try to meet and of course The Beatles. I always loved the British Invasion period.
I'm a musician, primarily a keyboardist now, started as a drummer and also play guitar. I studied composition in college and like to orchestrate though I am torn between classical and yet playing rock. I teach private music students. Small modest home studio as I have no wish to buy anymore music equipment at this point as one thing begets the next and so on. Still have and play my Yamaha acoustic from when I was 15 (I'm 59 now) and a set of Ludwig's from when I was 10. Never saw any need to replace them as I am attached to them as they are a link to my childhood. Three vintage synths, cheapie Ibanez electric, more than enough. Never understood the music store in a house types nor keyboardists with those big tiers. I use a K2600 live period (not presently playing out) and it's more than adequate as I sampled the analogs into it. But enough of that...
Two adult kids, happily married 39 years now.
It is nice to meet other Tull fans who remember the great days!
My favorite Tull album is "Passion Play" with "Songs From The Wood" being a close second, "Stormwatch" third. Attended the shows, loved them! I really like the 20 and 25 year box sets and listen a lot to the "Chateau" tapes which are amazing and, of course, were pre Passion Play. I have all the original vinyls. I'm very fond of the "Bursting Out" LP as that was my favorite Tull line-up and era!
Went to Tabb2, going to Homo Erraticus in Nov-DC.
Best wishes and kind regards.
