Martin Barre Will Never Abandon Jethro Tull's Music

(Classic Rock) Former Jethro Tull guitarist Martin Barre says he'll never turn his back on the band's music. He's on tour in the US at the moment supporting his latest album Back To Steel.

And while he says the material he recorded with Ian Anderson will always feature in his set, he ultimately wants his solo material to take centre stage. Barre tells Paste: "Jethro Tull's music will always be a part of my work - but I hope it becomes about 40% instead of 60%.

"I will never turn my back on it, though. I'm not so stupid that I don't know that people come to hear me play so they can hear Tull. But a lot of that music is in me anyway. That's not far from home. It will always be there."

And while he'll always be associated with Tull, Barre stresses the importance of his band having their own identity. Read more here.
