Noticing that it was printed the wrong way round on the horizontal -- Ian's coat was ripped on his left-hand side -- I flipped the image in Photoshop, plus some major work to get rid of creases ... which is the one you've posted. It's all in the detail ...
Thanks tullpress. So apart from being one year out and the wrong way round, the picture I posted was OK. Cheers!
And the accordion is still alive and kicking today.
I grew up in a tenement flat in Glasgow that consisted of two rooms, put your hankies away, the reason I mention it is that in that small cramped space there was a piano that took up loads of space in the bedroom (polished,with an empty vase on top) and a large accordion under the recess bed. Ours wasn't the only house in the close that had that either. I can't remember anyone actually playing the accordion, think it belonged to my deceased grandfather but it was viewed on a regular basis.
"Ladies of leisure, with their eyes on the back roads; All looking for strangers, to whom they extend welcomes With a smile and a glimpse of pink knees and elbows; Of satin and velvet --- good ladies, good fortune..........Ladies"
"They sing of their heroes: of solitary soldiers; Invested in good health and manner most charming. Whose favors are numbered (none the less well intended) By hours in a minute; by those ladies who bless them............Ladies"
The Topless Tull pix probably rooted in a nasty swipe at Zep type groupie exploitation/excess I'd guess....I mean...who the hell can he be if he never had V.D.? Thin line between humor/parody and vulgar...as I've learned the hard way...and the bitch is...the lines moves...years later when it's out of your control anyway.....I mean...you listen to old tapes of Kennedy and Johnson talking bout helping Nigras and Coloreds....and you remember how the line moves. I remember 'chicks' in college talking about needing 'more chicks' on the frisbee team or whatever....Tull chicks in 2013 better mean a side line in Poultry at the salmon farm not women listening to Tull !
I'll bet there is a ledge or something holding up John Evan above everyone's head. This may have been a pic that Ian was not pleased with. Clive looked okay with it. Bloody photographers and their tricks.
Patti you are insane. You are our gold piece. I am sticking this thing on this Facebook bit where one guesses who someone is from a picture from youth. I would not have guessed were it shown in a different venue. People may guess on Facebook because they know of my affliction, moreso than they ever would have guessed. I would not have guessed. I cannot say it has any resemblance I would otherwise connect. For instance looking at pics of the Beatles when they were 6 to 8 I have no trouble at all making the connection. Including the bit from a different thread as to when Ian goes away from the plan, best place to find that is in any interview session, but I believe particularly the ones he did for Rockline, at least 3. But I do recall him doing an interview, (well I am reminded of it maybe every 5 years when I play it) of an interview he did with the BBC guy Brian Mathews in 82 for Broadsword when Ian goes off on some description as a result of Mathews asking why interviewers only want to talk to Ian, part of the description being, "Well, if they would put on the false beard and do what I do". A friend and I used to really dig that false beard bit, truly found it borderline hysterical wit, and looking at that kid, o man would I like to try the false beard bit out on him. Thanks Patti!
steelmonkey: Thank You for interview and interview sharing. Very Cool.

futureshock: Hello again! I hope everyone is staying healthy and applying their newfound isolation-affected times and circumstances to beneficial activities so that years from now we can all tell younger generations how we survived this ordeal smartly as best possible!

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.....

nonrabbit: in lockdown so that the next generation/s will get detailed answers when they say " What did you do in the Covid lockdown Granda/ Granny"...."Well Sonny, I bought a hell of a lot of toilet paper" Stay safe Futureshock and see you here soon!!

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?
May 14, 2020 19:49:33 GMT
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.

tullmatrix: Is there some way to still get the Passion Play complete midi? I pasted the link into my browser and got a message that i was forbidden.

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.
