Members of Jethro Tull

The band had other important members including the guitarist Martin Barre, the keyboardist John Evan , drummers Clive Bunker, Barriemore Barlow, Diane Perry and bassists Glen Cornick, Dave Peggy and Jeffrey Hammond. These members came together and fitted in to a team and their amazingly wonderful skills in the instrumental package each of them possessed strengthened them.

Jethro Tull's music development 

In 1969, their folk-tinged blues rock album called Stand up made them to achieve a significant commercial role as it was voted to be No. 1 in the UK charts and that was quite a heavy step to success for them. The group loved to tour around UK and the US during this moment. They wanted to make steps towards developing their musical style and that guided them to do progressive rock and with this new style they did a few albums including Aqualung, A passion play and thick as a brick then later they shifted yet again in to hard rock music. With the hard rock style they did heavy horses and songs from the wood. Jethro Tull have taken to the world albums over 60 million in terms of sales, including five platinum albums and eleven of gold. This has seen them to be considered as one of the most successful progressive rock bands commercially in the whole wide world. Though their last releases of music date back in 2003 Jethro Tull did continue with its tours until 2011 and took sime break to 2014 then they were back again until today.

Background of Jethro Tull 

The main members of Jethro Tull met back in the 1960s in Blackpool because Ian Anderson, Jeffrey Hammond and John Evan went to the same grammar school. Ian Anderson had been born in Scotland and grew up then relocated to Blackpool in 1960. At that time Evan had become a great fan of the Beatles after watching them perform "love Me do" on television and though he was a fully equipped pianist chose to learn drumming. At that moment of life Ian Anderson had began teaching himself how to play the guitar and when they started they saw that they were better together as they complimented each other's instrumental so they formed the band which later grew to what we have today! The two brought on board the bassist Hammond who influenced the three piece band on how to do blues better. The three at first played in local clubs and events before Evan decided to recruit Barrie Barlow the drummer and Mike Stevens the guitarist from local bands. 

When Jethro wanted to extend their arms of music beyond they brought in a booking agent, Johnny Taylor who began to find events and gigs far into the Northwest of England for them. Some members quit doing other things and there were replacements for them as Jethro Tull continued to grow. In November 1967, the group relocated to London particularly in Luton where they signed a management deal with Terry Ellis and Chris Weight and had Smith the guitarist replaced by Mick Abrahams. At this point the band realised that supporting a seven member group wasn't logical financially and unfortunately they split up and at this point Evan left the band. Ian Anderson since living far from the family went through a difficult moment of life working at Luton Ritz Cinema as a cleaner to feed and at least pay his rent. At this moment they had not found the name Jethro Tull and had used so many names which were suggested by their booking agents. Later one of the agents who was a fan of history named them Jethro Tull after the famous 18th century agriculturist and the name stuck enough till today. John Evan who had left the band later in 1970 joined the band again.

Jethro Tull's achievements

Jethro Tull took the big hit with the album Stand up taking the number one position in the UK charts after being released in September 1969. As time went by Jethro Tull continued to rock different cities including New York and Chicago through the tours they did. The band also recalls how they won Grammy awards for the best hard rock/metal performance vocal or instrumental beating the favourite Metallica band though the award was considered controversial. The group has done so many songs and albums and has had rough and soft moments during their growth. They exactly know what it like is to lack finances and sleep hungry or live in a bed sit house yet entertaining many, rich and poor. Their story of growth has become a great inspiration to many names and musicians who are facing it rough in their music career life. One thing that Ian Anderson the leader of Jethro Tull never did was to give up because of the many situations they were facing. The band had a share of break ups and members quiting and others getting replaced yet Ian Anderson still stayed put to hold Jethro Tull until this day. If it was a music career propelled by the money that came out of it then we would not be talking of Jethro Tull today being expected to rock the crowd and cause traffic in the roads towards Las Vegas in two weeks to come. Jethro Tull has had many media entities including movies mention it in their scripts. On the Friday of 14th October Jethro Tull's The Rock Opera being a hit that rock lovers can't wait to see being performed will crown the upcoming event as Ian Anderson leads Jethro Tull to this significant performance in the Vegas, US.
