Ian Anderson explained why Jethro Tull​ are a living legacy

It’s been almost 20 years since an album of new original material was released under the Jethro Tull banner, but bandleader Ian Anderson still performs the group’s music — both live and, as on his new String Quartets LP, in the studio. So why put the band to bed?

Anderson explained his point of view in a recent interview with Eon Music, explaining that while scores of musicians have passed through the lineup over the years, he’s one of a very small number of original players who’s still musically active.
