End Of Jethro Tull Big Shock To Martin Barre (Top Story)

On Friday End Of Jethro Tull Big Shock To Martin Barre was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Martin Barre has described the end of Jethro Tull as a "big personal shock" that left him with a month to reorganize his life. And although he wasn't looking for a full-time solo career, he's happy with the way things have worked out - even though he can't help thinking about a future reunion.

Mainman Ian Anderson wound the band down in 2011 after deciding his future material would be released under his own name. Since then he's been touring with his own outfit, while his former guitarist is doing the same.

Barre tells UCR: "I always hate to hear, 'Oh, you've left Jethro Tull.' I haven't - Ian wanted to finish Jethro Tull, wanted to stop the band completely.

"It was a big personal shock to finish. Essentially the floor was pulled from underneath me, and I had a month to start from the beginning again. I am free, but I wasn't looking for freedom. I already had it." Read more - here.
