BEST FLUTE FORWARD: JETHRO TULL’S IAN ANDERSON
Ian Anderson was born in Dunfermline, Scotland, in 1947.
Jethro Tull was formed in London in 1967 and played the famous Marquee Club in February the following year.
Anderson began playing the flute after watching Eric Clapton playing guitar: “I realised I would never be that good even if I practised for a hundred years.”
The band has sold more than 60 million albums worldwide.
Anderson’s eclectic hobbies include growing hot chilli peppers, the study and conservation of small wildcats and vintage cameras.
