Biggles: A few years ago I read a review comparing Kings Of Leon to the Allman Brothers. What a stretch. The only thing they have in common is the south. A lot of great music coming out of the the south right now, but it aint southern rock. It's Americana.

krusher: If you want to hear the best southern rock band out right now check out Blackberry Smoke. Without a doubt the best of old school southern boogie combined with great guitar hooks and meaningful lyrics I have heard in 30 years.

Biggles: Yes krusher, Blackberry Smoke... I've watched their VH1 vid. A very authentic southern rock band. Yes TM, digging the 'two camps' banner.

Michael Crowe: What is Americana Biggs? The last "Americana" show I saw on tv (from Nashville) featured Richard Thompson. Leon Wilkerson of Skynyrd called their music progressive. I think labels are dead.

Biggles: I don't mind labels. Example, two of the biggest labels going are liberal and conservative so I don't think they're dead. For me, Americana is a blend of eclectic music (not mainstream) born in America. I disagree w/ Leon and consider RT Brit-folk.

Michael Crowe: I was speaking of music labeling in particular - it's all cross-over. Americana seems to take in anything semi acoustic with a hint of country. Yeah I disagreed w/Leon. Not sure where RT belongs.

Biggles: Fair enough, music labeling. First time I heard John Prine, Townes Van Zandt I didn't know how to describe their music. Then I saw a post soliciting "Americana songwriters like JP and TVZ etc." I made sense to me.

Morthoron: It doesn't get more "Americana" than The Band, particularly their self-titled album and Music from the Big Pink.

Biggles: Funny you should mention that Mothoron. StandUp texted me nearly the same comment the other day.

Nonfatman: Paul, I've heard that the first track on that album is going to be called 'How Come You Know Better than Me that This is Not Tull.'

TM: Somehow that doesn't surprise me.

piscesguy: if anyone is interested in an astrological reading of ian anderson, 8/10/47, the only book worth reading is Heaven Knows What by Grant Lewi, written 1950. Look up Leo sun/Taurus moon and you will understand. Or I'm just a one line joker in a public forum

TM: Hey Tull fans, we have some exciting news about Martin and his new album coming up - and it's a JTB exclusive!

piscesguy: Does anyone know how to find an old video I saw here in black and white of Ian, Glenn Cornick and others s play at an auditorium in what seemed to be Germany?. There's a brief spot nearthe beginning where they are riding to that concert in high spirits.

TM: Come on Tull fans, this Q&A is not going to stay open long! Get your questions in while you can!
