The Life Of Brian: Ahh will anyone click and look?
Principal Clarinet: Writing a song while on LSD does not make it great.
Krymson Tyde: I'll have what he's having.
Recoil Therapy: I am confused though by you not being able to find it for years.
vort3xxx: I can totally see why they beat out Metallica for the first heavy metal Grammy award.
pudding7: I thought Jethro Tull was just a person in a band.
downstairs: That's pretty good, but I prefer My God, 1970
tillerman35: My favorite Jethro Tull lyrics come from the song Heavy Horses. The music is OK (frankly, it's not their best). But the lyrics are a a thing of beauty. Really, they should be taught in grade school as an example of what English poetry ought to be..

douchebag/hater: And this: Jethro Tull was an early English farmer that did something important but I don't know what it was.
downstairs: Krymson Tyde: I'll have what he's having.Skip to 5:30 and he makes it pretty damn clear what he's having
craigdamage: Principal Clarinet Writing a song while on LSD does not make it great.Ignorant child.Ian Anderson was (in)famous for his stern and unwaverring anti-drug stance. Afterall,he once kicked Tony Iommi out of the band for being a "stoner" (Black Sabbath fans rejoice)Also,it was Ian's ex-wife who wrote that song. (at least the lyrics)What DOES make TULL/Aqualung great is the fantastic riff,superb electric to acoustic and then back change,soulfull delivery in a fairly complex song,good hooks and overall spotless musicianship.Utterly flawless performance. The live sound on that was perfect. You could hear the drums and electric bass clearly. Barre's guitar tone is awesome. etc.....
Anarchangel: I originally submitted this years ago and it was greenlit then because it's a farking amazing performance.The headline was about Ian's facial expressions scaring the crap out of you. :PThanks for reminding me about this awesome vid.
GAT_00: Principal Clarinet: Writing a song while on LSD does not make it great.Krymson Tyde: I'll have what he's having.Ian Anderson was, and still is, strenuously anti-drug.
craigdamage: douchebag/hater Tull wrote a lot of pretentious crap - starting with 'My God' and including 'Thick As A Brick'Ian Anderson has claimed that "Thick As A Brick" was "pretentious on purpose" as a "parody" of the then booming progressive rock scene. Anderson was angry that critics considered "Aqualung" as a "prog-concept record" and he basically wanted "Thick As A Brick" to be an over the top way too heavy-handed concept record as a "joke"oh well.....I wonder what is Anderson's excuse for "A Passion Play"?
fark'emfeed'emfish: GAT_00: Principal Clarinet: Writing a song while on LSD does not make it great.Krymson Tyde: I'll have what he's having.Ian Anderson was, and still is, strenuously anti-drug.no way, 4:06 he takes off to do a line,comes back at 4:40 and finishes it at 5:31.
