Jethro Tull never really gets the respect they deserve, they really don't.
This classic folk-rock band, led by Ian Anderson and featuring more often then not, Martin Barre on guitar have been putting out excellent albums for decades and to this day remain one of the strongest life acts out there.
Living in the Past
What hurts Jethro Tull has very little to do with their music, but instead Tull gets a rough time because they were unlucky enough to win the 1989 Grammy for Best Hard Rock or Heavy Metal performance.
Skating Away on the Thin Ice (of a Brand New Day)
Now there is no way that Tull was ever a Hard Rock, let a lone a metal band, so it's fine that fans of Metal would get so worked up.
But really it isn't Jethro Tull's fault that the Grammy's had no sense.
I'm not saying that Jethro Tull is the greatest band that there ever was, but I will say that they have a great sound that mixes semi-crunchy guitar with a Celtic folk beat,
And that the classic radio station should maybe play something other then Aqualung every once in awhile.
