In 1988, metal was poised to finally make the leap from the shadowy fringes of music into the critical mainstream when Metallica were nominated for a Grammy for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Performance. But in one of the most incredible upsets in Grammy history,
By 1978, Jethro Tull had been running for 10 years, and though their commercial fortunes and profile had soared with albums like 'Aqualung' and 'Thick as a Brick,' the band was still at its creative peak, as its 11th album, 'Heavy Horses,' proves.
One of Jethro Tull's classic records, 'Thick as a Brick,' celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, and Ultimate Classic Rock is giving you the opportunity to win the new vinyl box set version of the album.
On Nov. 6, Jethro Tull will release a 40th anniversary edition of their album, 'Thick as a Brick.' The greatest band to ever be named for an 18th century English agriculturalist announced the details of the package via press release.
Jethro Tull leader Ian Anderson has already commemorated the 40th anniversary of its hit 'Thick as a Brick' record by releasing a sequel -- and now the band is continuing the celebration by reaching back into the vaults for a newly remastered version of the original LP.
It's not everyday that a flute makes its way into a rock 'n' roll group. However, Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson was able to not just fit in but somehow stand out with the unconventional instrument.
Jethro Tull’sIan Anderson is currently promoting his solo sequel to the band’s classic ‘Thick As A Brick’ album, but as he revealed in a recent interview, he’s got quite a few other projects in mind as well.
Ian Anderson delivered one of the best live concert performances in recent memory when he brought his new solo tour in support of the just-released 'Thick as a Brick II' to the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall in Liverpool, England on April 18.
To quote Ian Anderson, "If someone had suggested that I might release a prog-concept album in the year 2012, I would have thought him seriously, dangerously even, off his trolley. But that is precisely what happened."
