Ian Anderson has been the driving force behind JETHRO TULL for over half a century! With more than 60 million records sold worldwide, Jethro Tull can look back on a catalogue that contains classics such as 'Aqualung', 'Thick As A Brick', 'A Passion Play', 'Minstrel In The Gallery' and 'Stand Up' and now look forward when the release of 2022's 'The Zealot Gene'. In this fascinating interview, Ian, talks all about the new album, his songwriting process, how he captures the muse and more.
Also on the show is author Laura Shenton who has written a number of books on music, including a few Jethro Tull books already. She's on to talk about her new book "Jethro Tull Chronicles 1967-79" which is set for release at the end of March. She talks about her love for the bands music and about the special, rare and previously unseen contents of the book.
You'll also get to hear my Top 5 Jethro Tull songs as well, which I know will create opinion!
