I've just read two interviews, one of Ian Anderson and one of Martin Barre. It sure sounds like Jethro Tull is over. Ian sounds rather full of himself and Martin sounds like he got tired of being under used. There are no plans for further Tull albums or touring.

But, instead, we'll get two tribute bands. Ian playing Thick As A Brick part 1 and the new solo album, TAAB2 on tour. Martin wants to recapture the energy of early Tull and is putting a band together to play "...pure Tull. I want to get back to the simplicity of the early songs that we haven’t done for a long time. There will be no keyboards. It will be straightforward and we will be playing tracks that have not been played for many, many years."

I read the interviews and thought, "married old couple that's been together for 42 years and now they want to go their own ways." I'm very sad about it because that last concert I saw was fantastic and they played so incredibly well together. But, they want to do different things. The up side will be two concerts to go to instead of one. But you know? Damn.

Here are the interviews:
