Watched Jethro Tull playing Live at Isle of White in 1970

Cable has some classic music stuff that brings back or creates memories. I recall Jethro Tull as the only bluesy, jazzy flautist playing rock music. I like his Bungle in the Jungle song. Of course most of his music sounded the same, but that is true of many bands. A trip to watch him playing while lifting his leg and seeing the hairy teens of 1970.

The older, fatter, darker Jethro was also interviewed as part of the show and seemed quite articulate, smart and funny. Almost could not recognize him as the same dude!

Can you recall the music of 1970 and what you were doing?

For me it was Bowie. Bowie at Carnegie Hall in Sept. of 72, followed by an appearence at the Tower in Philadelphia in November. We only had tickets to the show with Mott The Hoople, but did manage to buy $15 tickets from a scalper for 60 for the show the next night , also. What great shows. After that I was hooked and saw him whenever he hit the eastern us. Last summer he was at a very local, outdoor venue(montage mountain/for ampitheatere)on his Reality Tour. He looked better than ever! Such sexual energy. Less than a week later, the remainder of his us tour was cancelled due to the fact that he had undergone angioplasty for clogged arteries.

Also, Red...I think you mean the Isle of Wight.

be cool, Rose

1970 mmmmm I was 9 years old but move the decade forward a little and I can remember all the great songs that made being a teen fun. Back then I was rock and classical. Funny isn't it. Played in a symphony at CR at the ripe ol age of teen but partied to AC/DC fleetwood Mac, Chicago, Pink Flyod, Boston etc... Of course when I ended up on the commune with the true hippies of the 60's I became well educated on that era of music. We didn't listen to the acutal bands and singers of the 60's but some of the communites play guitar while we all sang the classic songs. Bobby, Johnny,Jannis, you name it. I still have "Blowin in the Wind" and "Mr. Bojangles" stuck in my head. Dam I AM getting old! Shhhhh don't tell

I loved the Beatles, Rolling Stones and the Who as they percolated through the era and Bob Dylan for his intricate songs. Many others later as well. I did not see Jethro Tull live, just on this broadcast which was a trip! Like the Woodstock movie, nicer to see the edited version rather than hassle the crowds at the lovein! Yes I am lazy sometimes.
