Ian Anderson Background

The youngest of three brothers and sisters, singer Ian Anderson spent the better part of his youth in Scotland. Anderson was initially inspired by his father's collection of jazz and big band albums as well as the advent of rock music, but he was disappointed with the "flashy" style of American rock and rollers such as Elvis Presley. In 1959, his family relocated to Blackpool, Lancashire, England. It was there that Anderson went to the Blackpool Grammar School. According to a recent interview, he said that he was requested to leave the school for refusing to take corporal punishment. He then went on to attend the Blackpool College of Art during the early '60s. In his formative teen years, Anderson worked as a sales assistant at Lewis's department store located in Blackpool. After that, he took a job as a vendor at a newsstand. He eventually stated that it was at the newsstand where he picked up copies ofNew Musical ExpressandMelody Makerand read them over lunch breaks. He said that his reading material inspired him to play in a band.

It was around 1963 that Anderson founded The Blades, which was comprised of school chums. The soul and blues band featured Anderson on harmonica and vocals. In 1967, Anderson deserted his aspiration to play the electric guitar. As he relays in the intro to the Live at the Isle of Wight video, Anderson swapped his electric guitar for the flute. As his career forged on, Anderson became quite the instrumentalist – taking up mandolin, keyboards, saxophone, and other instruments. He additionally continued to play acoustic guitar. His propensity to play the flute while standing on one leg happened on accident. While playing the harmonica, he had been prone to stand on one leg while holding the microphone stand for balance. As the story goes, a journalist wrote about him "as standing on one leg to play the flute." Anderson then made the decision to live up to the story, which turned out to be a painstaking challenge.

Jethro Tull took shape in 1968 out of the merger of a pair of local blues-based bands, McGregor's Engine and John Evan Band. They gave their first performance at London's famous Marquee club. Still enjoying their success, Jethro Tull has put out over two dozen live and studio albums. They have sold over 60 million copies.Under his own name, Anderson cut a small number of highly lauded projects and often made guest appearances on other musicians' work. He has additionally cut numerous tunes, on which he jams on all the instruments as well as managing production/engineering.


Ian Anderson Albums

To date, Ian Anderson has cut six dynamic albums under his own name during a storied career:Walk Into the Light; the flute instrumentalDivinities;The Secret Language of Birds;Rupi's Dance;Thick As A Brick 2; andHomo Erraticus.


Ian Anderson Trivia

Ian Anderson's crowning achievement has been introducing the flute instrument to rock music. He additionally plays ethnic flutes and whistles jointly along with the mandolin family of instruments and the acoustic guitar.

After giving over 3,000 concerts in 40+ countries throughout just as many decades, Jethro Tull has played about 100 concerts each year to dedicated fans, as well as new fans across the planet.
