Great work on TAAB2, Ryan! It was remarkable to hear how much of an affinity you had with Ian's vocal lines, and musical style. You are obviously a talented singer, but you are also an actor. Did you prepare for performing Ian's vocals (old and new) from a singer's mindset - as a singer in a tribute band might (to put it far too crudely!), or more as a character actor getting into a role?
Hi Ryan We met in Sant Feliu (Catalonia) and you received many compliments from everyone, I agree, you do a great job on the new album, especially in the live show. You knew the music of Jethro Tull before being hired by Ian? You could comment to us as was the selection for this job? Thanks and see you again in Barcelona on February 6 Remy from Barcelona
Hello Ryan Nice job on the TAAB shows. I enjoyed your performance very much. Q. How aware were you of Jethro Tull before you started with them and what was your opinion of Tull before hand? Q. How did Ian go about auditioning you? Did he just come out and ask if you could mimic his voice? How much direction did Ian give you as far as movement around the stage, any? Q. How did you like the Auld Dubliner, in Long Beach California (We briefly spoke outside as I was leaving) The Hooligans were playing that night, very loudly, forcing the wives to force us out. Would've liked to have bought Tom and yourself a beer. Thanks for agreeing to participate with us! Hope to see you again! Steve in Long Beach, CA
Hi Ryan. I just wanted to ask you this: from long long time I follow the Jethro Tull and Ian's career, and I know that he has a strong personality. How did you find working with him, and if you've never had any problems. I' ve enjoyed you several times all along last year. Thank you. Michele.
Hello Ryan, we met in San Javier, Spain last July at the back stage as you all were signing our old and new Tull records, thanks for the great and short experience. The concert at that venue over a warm summer nigt was highly awesome.
How was your first experience on a Rock Tour over the world ? ardous, exciting, exhausting? You'll also have for sure a big deal of tales to share, can you still recall any to tell us here and now?
Thanks for your great contribution to the band. Hope you're still hangin' on more time with the band. Best of luck
Fans have been suggesting for many years now that Ian use another vocalist on stage so you are a much welcomed member to the Tull community. I look forward to seeing the brick show in 2013. As asked above, I am also curious if Ian laid out any more future plans with you beyond the TAAB tour? Have you begun preparing to work on other Tull songs? Thank You for taking part!
Hello Ryan. At first, the thought of another vocalist being a part of this group seemed unimaginable. You have far exceeded expectations from myself and others with a very classy performance.
- Can you relate to the Gerald Bostock character in your own life? - Have there been any scary moments on and off stage that made you question yourself in this role? - What is your favorite music in general other than Tull?
Thanks for being so gracious with us in Asheville, North Carolina last September. We loved every moment! Jim - Tryon, North Carolina
Biggles: Sooo jealous! enjoy.

marco58: Just saw Martin and his hot band in Plymouth, MA last Friday night. My second live Tull experience, after Ian in November at Foxwoods in CT. Completely blown away, the man is legendary, can't wait for his 2016 dates!

TM: Know what you mean Marco - welcome to the board. Everyone in NY was blown away by him as well. It was best show I've seen in many years.

bristoltull: Hi....may be of interest to UK-based fans. On the BBC quiz show "Mastermind", I'm on this Friday, in one of the semi-finals, and my specialised subject is.....Jethro Tull. BBC2, 19th February 2016, 8pm. I gave it my best shot. See how many you can answer!

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?

Mystery To Me: Going to Red Rocks show with 2 friends. Anyone from the board going to this concert? Would like to meet anyone or everyone. Later

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
