Ian Anderson

Should he be regarded in the same vein as Bolan, Bowie, Jagger, Moon, Daltrey, and the ILK.

Been listening to a bit of Jethro.... It's aged pretty well really.

Seems to be me he never received the accolades he should have.

I guess he was so odd that he couldn't even be regarded as eccentric.

Isnít he into salmon farming or the like! Is he really odd outside of his stage persona?

I've always been a fan - had pretty much every album up until the early 1980s. I agree that Ian Anderson is underrated, possibly because he was so eclectic that it was hard to put him in a convenient pigeon hole. (They won the grammy for heavy metal FFS - what's that about?)

You'd have to be thick as a brick to think other wise.

IMHO Anderson has never reached the dizzy heights of the other stated pop stars who were all egotists determined to achieve fame and success at all costs, and did. Ian was just a nutty flautist who danced around on stage. Was he as talented? Was he as driven? Definitely not as commercial. Different kind of character

Heard him being interviewed on the radio a while back. Seemed like a really decent bloke.

Unquestionably driven, Timbo - famously perfectionist. He sacked Glenn Cornick because he thought he cared too much about the rock n roll lifestyle. John Evan commented on how IA really pushed him in the improvised opening to "Locomotive Breath" until he got what he wanted. Dee Palmer said she knew she was done with the band when she played something that wasn't quite right and IA said it was ok and no one would notice.

As you say though, definitely not commercially motivated in the same way as the others.

You know him better than I Hugh, I didn't know about the perfectionist bit. Having lived in the UK through his prime commercial period, more than 45 years ago, he was definitely in a lower division to the high profile stars mentioned and certainly never attained their commercial attraction. I never felt inclined to buy any Jethro Tull stuff, at the time, maybe not now, there always seemed to be something more hip. IA's stuff has definitely remained more relevant than most from the period though

Jethro Tull was like Marmite, you either loved their unusual musical style or hated it and Ian Anderson was the centerpiece it revolved around.
I loved their music back in the days.

Saw the Tull once, still have and play "Stand up". Not as big as Bowie or Jagger but superb musically and was brilliant on stage.

Some great points made on here. Not sure why in my head I've picked out Bolan to compare him to, but who has stood the test of time better. Plus who was the better muso?

Used to Love T.REX back in the day, now.... well I don't think them and Tull are in the same league.

Funny how your tastes mature eh

Songs From The Wood still sounds good today.

Always remember the UK press slaughtering A Passion Play. Could well rank as the amongst the most vitriolic music reviews i’ve ever seen !
Oh, and in reference to the b-side thread, Teacher was a great reverse side to Witch’s Pronise.
