Jethro Tull formed in February 1968 from the ashes of two unsuccessful blues/rock bands of the era. Ian Anderson (flute and vocals) and Martin Barre (guitar) provide to this day the musical and historical backbone of the group, joined by Doane Perry on drums, Andrew Giddings on keyboards, and Jonathan Noyce on bass. So-called concept albums followed in the early 70's (Thick as a Brick" and "A Passion Play") with the attendant platinum No. 1 album chart sales. Tull survived the critical backlash of the return-to-basics later 70's to produce some of their finest creative efforts which, although not quite matching the commercial success of the previous works, established the band as one of the truly creative exponents of progressive music throughout the 70's, 80's and 90's.They have continued to constantly reinvent themselves, albeit with several personnel changes along the way. With sales of around 60 million albums and more than 2500 concerts in 40 countries, the band continues to tour and record, typically performing 100 concerts per year.
