Are Jethro Tull still active in 2020??. Never really got into them due to listening to many other rock and blues/rock bands from the 1970s although I did notice in the past a number of 1970s rock fans name dropped them. I was tempted to buy the expanded first album (2 cds) around 10 years ago mainly because of Mick Abrahams playing guitar on it and then leaving to form Blodwyn Pig. I read a story maybe 10-15 years ago about Rory Gallagher being in the company of Ian Anderson sometime back in the 1970s or 1980s along with a few others in a after show social gathering and Rory eventually got up and left the gathering because his views didn't fit with Ian's views?. I also read that Ritchie Blackmore of Deep Purple & Rainbow and Ian became a bit 'matey' with each other about 10 years ago and possibly even recorded some stuff together?.
