Ian Anderson Biography - Half a Century of Hits
This Fife-born multi-instrumentalist's career was as much a reaction to the artists he didn't like as those who inspired him. Disillusioned by the breed of rock star spearheaded by Elvis, he decided to leave behind a string of mundane jobs after soaking up the sounds of the time via the music press. Frustrated at his inability to match up to guitar god Eric Clapton, he took up the flute, forming his first band The Blades in 1962 before joining Jethro Tull five years later.
By 1969 they'd scored a Number One album, Stand Up, and entered the '70s as one of Britain's best loved bands. Soon they were enjoying success on the other side of the Atlantic, with 1972's Thick as a Brick hitting the top spot, a feat repeated by A Passion Play a year later. Although their line-up often shifted over the years, Anderson remained a constant presence, leading the band and defining their ever-changing sound.
In the years since, both the group and Anderson have remained a huge live draw on both sides of the Atlantic despite entering their twilight years.
