I like the tracks from your "coolhunter" site. Is there a possibility to buy them? On CD? I can ´t find the album "leaven". I especially like the track "Everyone is here now part I". It reminds me (for example) of "Trentemoeller (e.g. "miss you"). Recommendations from you?
Through the "Divinities" Tour in 1995 you had an instrumental spot together with Doane Perry. It was great!!! I think part of it is shown on his website. On his site it is called "Balindians". Is there a proper recording of this track including you? Where to get?
P.S: During the Martin Barre Tour in 1998 in Bamberg- Zapfendorf i got a signature from you for my niece who was a "Take That" fan. She was happy. Thanks!
Hi everyone, I've been a lurker here for awhile now and would like to ask Jonathan some questions.
I would like to know how he got the position with Ian during Divinities, and if he had to audition, what that was like?
I am also curious about what he's doing now, having read claims by someone who seems to have a prominent role in a fan-group called the Tullianos, who has gone on record stating that Jon left Martin's New Day over a money dispute, and Jon has a history of doing such things. I would like to hear Jon's side in this.
Thank you Quizz Kid. While I'm usually content to sit back and enjoy the views of the many Tull fans throughout the world, I was a bit taken aback at the shots being leveled against Jon publicly. It would be remiss of me to not mention that these comments did not occur here. I've always viewed Jon as an underrated component of Tull's rhythm section during his stint with Tull, and somewhat under-appreciated by the fans. I would like to give him the opportunity to set the record straight, instead having his name thrown into the mud by some undignified individual.
I suppose some basic background questions wouldn't go amiss.
In addition to Ron's question about getting the gig with Ian, how about sharing your views on the work you have done with other diverse artists like Neil Hannon's Divine Comedy, Rodriguez and Archive as well as any additional collaborations like those with Martin and others.
How did you get started, your own musical background and upbringing, first bass? and what's your current equipment list?
Biggles: Sooo jealous! enjoy.

teddy: Seems like everyone trying to figure out " Eat Hermione for lunch" just don't get it. A Popular vegetarian line of food is advertised by a woman named Hermione. You can see the advertisement on line. Thus it is not oral sex with a office girl. Munch.

lclark354: Hello everyone. I recently finished a room addition, and can finally set up surround sound. I've purchased all the Tull sets, except, of course,TAAB. Is there a site where one can purchase & download the 5.1 files? Or, any word on a re-issue?

madjack1959: Hello to everyone from Lexington, Kentucky. Part of what led me here, was mention of Gentle Giant. I've listened to Tull for ages, and then was introduced to GG via Octopus I saw in the record store, and that was my start. I've never seen either "live" :

yellowcab643: I made my way to Hollywood and thought it was very refreshing. The Kaiser Permanente Optometrist there cured my High Blood Pressure. Do I like an unsung westerner - I drove an England truck and had a Texas CDL Styx & Van Halen might have music about me
