Martin. Having come along during the heyday of the British blues era, and having seemingly spent some quality time in Mississippi, is it possible that we could see (and hear) an all (or mostly) blues album from you before the last bell tolls? I would think that you would have something profound to say in that vein, musically speaking, with the usual tasteful, creative, and slightly off the bubble twist you tend to bring to your outings. Thank you.
1. What are your impressions regarding the 40th anniversary Jethro Tull reissues? How much input do you have in the project? How do you feel about the next one in particular, Too old to Rock n´Roll? 2. Back in the seventies, a few rock bands were offered to play South Amerca, but ultimately rejected or canceled (Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin)...do you recall JT being invited back then? 3. Do you have a favourite JT line-up and why? All the best!

Martin, I've always had the impression the the Tull line up that recorded Thick as a Brick to Minstrel in the Gallery was the one that pushed the boundaries as musicians but more importantly with increased input from all the band. I remember listening to a live performance of songs from Minstrel broadcast from a radio studio and along with the picture on the back cover of the album I was thinking at the time that these guys now know they can play together. Also, if memory serves me well, the band were both touring heavily and basically just being together at all times.
Do you recall this period as exciting and intense as I had imagined? Thanks, Mac. Glasgow
ps look forward to the Green Hotel performance. I'll be the bald guy in the audience. Wait a minute, all the guys in the audience will be bald !!!

1. According an article on 'Classic Rock Magazine', you discribe your new album 'Back to Steel' as "the most important work in your carreer as a musician". Why is 'BTS' so important? And in which way it is different to your previous solo-albums (like Trick, Meeting and Stage Left)?
2. If you had to move to a (rock) island and you had the chose one instrument... which guitar will you take with you? Your PRS, your Manson,...? Or will it be something completely different than a guitar? The 'Big Riff' mando? A grand piano? Or just a kazoo?
Martin, congratulations on your post Tull success. I adore 'Away With Words', stunning work! 1. If you hadn't been a musician, what other career do you think you would enjoyed? 2. Will you ever write a book about your life? 3. Do ever see a time when you might work with Ian again?
Sorry folks but I've dropped the ball on this. My oldest daughter went off to college the same time I spoke with Martin about this Q&A, and I just never got back to it, as work and other things have taken focus.
Perhaps we can visit sending these off to Martin after he returns from his US Tour?
TM: Oh man, what an incredible show! I have picks and videos to post.

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.

Biggles: I just read the Bill Kopp Asheville, NC review a few days ago and could tell you guys were in for something special. I love that marco58 referred to it as "My second live Tull experience" welcome to the board marco58!

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

willydontmind: I bought a 1967 Eko Ranger 12 and it had an autograph on the back. After looking around at who used this kind of guitar and comparing signatures to everyone that I could think of, I came up with John Evans. What do you guys think? Is this his signature
