Jethro Tull Is History?

(Classic Rock) Ian Anderson has described his work as Jethro Tull as "historical" and said he's quite happy to leave it that way. And he's underlined the fact that he never liked the band name in the first place.

He's just released his second solo album, Homo Erraticus, which sees him using his Gerald Bostock character for the third time. It first appeared on 1972 Tull release Thick As A Brick, then returned on Anderson's_ Thick As A Brick 2_ in 2012.

He tells Billboard: "To me, Jethro Tull is the vast body of repertoire - the record catalogue, the music. If we look back on it, it kind of came more or less to an end during the last ten years or so, with a couple of live albums and a studio album of Christmas material. That might define the last albums under the name Jethro Tull.

"It's a body of work I rather think is now historical, since the weight of it lies back in the 70s and 80s. And I rather think it's nice to leave that as legacy." more on this story
