Jethro Tull blended hard rock, blues, folk and surreal lyrics to become one of the most unique progressive rock bands of our era. Joining Tull in 1969 for the recording of “Living in the Past”, Martin Barre continued to provide much of the energy juxtaposed to Ian Anderson’s complex melodies and lyrics that allowed the band to rise in epic popularity until it’s dissolution in 2011.
Listen here to Carol’s interview with Martin Barre on Test of Time as Barre reflects back on his days as Jethro Tull’s guitarist including his favorite and most difficult albums to record. Martin Barre is hitting his stride as a solo artist and loving the freedom that’s offered. He continues re-interpreting Jethro Tull songs as well as writing and recording new material.
