Ask Ian Anderson: Name Your Favorite Album » Tull 3

WHAT A CONCEPT: Ian Anderson celebrates 49 years as rock’s pied piper while on tour playing the entirety of Jethro Tull’s “Thick as a Brick” album. The album, released in 1972 and containing only the 44-minute title track spread across two sides of vinyl, was intended as a parody concept album. Today, the album and Jethro Tull stand as classic rock icons.
