To all of you who don't get your answers to Ian picked and answered...despair not....I will answer the leftover questions on his behalf......just re-propose them, on this thread and you'll get fully un-authorised, un-researched, in-accurate but guaranteed funny answers!
Ha! I'm looking forward to this as much as Ian's answers now!
Could be interesting. By the way, happy birthday rayman from another who was born on the 25th January although I'm a few years ahead of you ;D. Congratulations on the baby news and I hope it all goes well.
Mr. Anderson will be played by 'Tevye the Milkman' from Fiddler on the Roof. He wants to be a Tiger ( Tiger the animal...not the Pegg expression for vomit stains on dark shoes...no, really...Peggy would always check for 'tiger' on his shoes after a rough night) Truck Stop Runner is the kind of country song he'd write. Seedless grapes are orphans...they are taken to the grape orphanage, de-seeded and put up for adoption. Their parents probably turned to wine and couldn't take care of them.

And if that were not enough, the opening six notes of If I Were a Rich Man are eerily similar to the opening six notes of Aqualung. Hum both in your head a few times and you will see what I mean! Too weird.
You think it's a coincidence that Aqualung is related to 'if i were a rich man'?
But what I want to know is if Ian knows all the words. I mean, every time I've ever heard it, no matter whose singing it, they always forget and it ends up: "If I were a rich man, buduh buduh buduh buduh buduh buduh buduh bum..." I mean, what's with that?
Add to the mix the co-writing credit for Aqualung of Jenny Anderson...nee Franks...a Jewish woman!
So it's not outwith the realms of possibility that he would have been sitting in the audience of Fiddler.. with the missus and the in-laws -- Seriously, has this theory been chewed over before by Tull fans?
maddogfagin: Yes it's a great addition to the Forum and I'm hoping radio.net will provide this service for years to come

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

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!

ash: Is anyone aware of a recent statement from Ian saying he doesn't have COPD and it's only asthma? Just asking
Jun 1, 2022 9:21:29 GMT
rredmond: I thought it was both?
Jun 4, 2022 19:34:53 GMT
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.

nonrabbit: Sounds joyous smint100 - all round!

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: I live in Cumbria and I had booked for the Glasgow show which was,of course, cancelled.

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.
Jun 23, 2022 12:43:14 GMT
jackinthegreen: In that case welcome back marshall. I am a Full can too....if that's rhyming slang for Tull fan
