Jethro Tull are a British rock band formed in Blackpool, England in 1967. Initially playing blues rock and jazz fusion, the band soon incorporated elements of hard rock, folk and classical music, forging a signature progressive rock sound.
The group’s bandleader and primary composer is Scottish Ian Anderson, a multi-instrumentalist who mainly plays flute and acoustic guitar, and is also the lead vocalist. The group has featured a revolving door of musicians throughout the decades.

Ian Anderson, Jeffrey Hammond and John Evan (originally Evans), who would become members of Jethro Tull, attended grammar school together in Blackpool. Anderson was born in Dunfermline, Scotland and grew up in Edinburgh before moving to Blackpool in January 1960.
A staffer at their booking agency, a history enthusiast christened them “Jethro Tull” after the 18th century agriculturist.

Their ‘break-through’ album Aqualung was released in May, 1971.
The album was split into two sides, subtitled ‘Aqualung’ and ‘My God’, and featured Anderson’s opinions about organized religion.
Aqualung was the first Jethro Tull album to reach the top ten in the US, peaking at No. 7. It sold over one million copies, earning it a gold disc by the RIAA in July 1971.

This spawned numerous hit albums: Thick As A Brick (1972), A Passion Play (1973), War Child (1974) and Songs From The Wood (1977).

Top Hits: “Aqualung”, “Locomotive Breath”, “Cross-Eyed Mary”, “My God”, “Wond’ring Aloud”, “Hymn 43”, “Living In The Past”, “Thick As A Brick, Part 1”, “Songs From The Wood”, “Bungle In The Jungle”, “Bouree”, “Life’s A Long Song” and “Skating Away”.

Ian Anderson’s daughter Gael, who works in the film industry, is married to actor Andrew Lincoln, star of the US TV drama series The Walking Dead.
Jethro Tull has yet to be inducted into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame…
