Early life

Ian Anderson was born the son of a hotel manager. He spent the first part of his childhood in Edinburgh, an influence which has dominated his artistic output ever since. He would return much later in life to live in Scotland for several years. This article or section does not adequately cite its references or sources. ...


His family moved to Blackpool in the North West of England in 1959, where he gained a traditional grammar school education before going on to study fine art. Much of his work referring to this period suggests a somewhat turbulent upbringing. It has been suggested that South Shore, Blackpool be merged into this article or section. ...

Early career

While a teenager, Anderson took a job as a sales assistant at Lewis' department store in Blackpool, then as a vendor on a newsstand. He later said it was reading copies of Melody Maker and the New Musical Express during his lunch breaks that gave him the inspiration to play in a band. Melody Maker, published in the United Kingdom, was (until its closure) the worlds oldest weekly music newspaper. ... The New Musical Express (better known as the NME) is a weekly magazine about popular music published in the UK. It is unlike many other popular music magazines due to its intended focus on guitar-based music and indie rock bands, instead of mainstream pop acts. ...


In 1963 he formed The Blades from among school friends: Barriemore Barlow (drums), John Evan (keyboards), Jeffrey Hammond (bass) and Michael Stephens (guitar). This was a soul and blues band, with Anderson on vocals and harmonica - he had yet to take up the flute.

Jeffrey Hammond (born July 30, 1946, sometimes credited as Jeffrey Hammond-Hammond) was a bass player for the progressive rock band Jethro Tull. ...


By 1965 the group had turned into the John Evan Band, comprising a larger line-up. It broke up within a couple of years, by which time Anderson had moved to Luton. There he met drummer Clive Bunker and guitarist and fellow vocalist Mick Abrahams from fellow blues band McGregor's Engine. Along with Glenn Cornick, a bassist he had met through John Evan, he created the first incarnation of the band with which he was to stay for over 40 years: Jethro Tull.

At this time Anderson abandoned his ambition to play electric guitar, and as he himself tells it in the introduction to the video "Live at the Isle of Wight", he traded it in for a flute which, after some weeks of practise, he found he could play fairly well in a rock and blues style. According to the sleeve notes for the first Tull album, "This Was", he had been playing the flute only a few months when the album was recorded. His guitar practice was not wasted either, as he continued to play acoustic guitar, becoming one of the few recording artists outside the classical realm to use the nylon-string acoustic guitar as a melodic, rather than a rhythm instrument. As his career progressed, he added soprano saxophone, mandolin, keyboards and other instruments to his arsenal. The Isle of Wight is an English island and county, off the southern English coast, to the south of the county of Hampshire. ... The saxophone (colloquially referred to as sax) is a conical-bored instrument of the woodwind family, usually made of brass and played with a single-reed mouthpiece like the clarinet. ... Carved (electric) and round backed mandolins (front) A mandolin is a small, stringed musical instrument which is plucked, strummed or a combination of both. ...


His famous tendency to stand on one leg while playing the flute came about by accident. As related in the "Isle of Wight" video, he had been inclined to stand on one leg while playing the harmonica, holding the microphone stand for balance. During the long stint at the Marquee Club, a journalist described him, wrongly, as standing on one leg to play the flute. He decided to live up to the reputation, albeit with some difficulty. His early attempts are visible in the "Rock and Roll Circus" film appearance of Jethro Tull. In later life he was surprised to learn of iconic portrayals of various flute playing divinities, particularly Krishna and Kokopelli, show them standing on one leg. The Marquee is a legendary music club first located at 165 Oxford Street, London, UK when it opened in 1958 with a range of jazz and skiffle acts. ... Krishna with Radha, 18th C Rajasthani painting Krishna (कृष्ण in Devanagari, in IAST ) is a deity worshipped across many traditions of Hinduism. ... Kokopelli is a fertility deity, usually depicted as a humpbacked flute player (often with a huge phallus and antenna-like protrusions on his head), who has been venerated by many Native American cultures in the Southwestern United States. ...


Later career

While Anderson has recorded a small number of critically-acclaimed projects under his own name, and frequently makes guest appearances in other artists' work, he has been identified in the public eye as the frontman of Jethro Tull for nearly 40 years.


This is undoubtedly because a signature motif of Anderson's career has been a highly distinctive stage image, which has often been counter to the prevailing rock music culture. While he has habitually drawn inspiration from British folklore - at different times deploying stylistic elements of Medieval jester, Elizabethan minstrel, English country squire and Scottish laird - at other times he has appeared as astronaut, pirate and vagrant. His personae often involve a large degree of self-parody. The Middle Ages formed the middle period in a traditional schematic division of European history into three ages: the classical civilization of Antiquity, the Middle Ages, and modern times. ...

As a flautist, Anderson is self-taught; his style, which often includes a good deal of flutter tonguing and occasionally singing or humming (or even snorting) while playing, was influenced by Roland Kirk. In 2003 he recorded a composition called Griminelli's Lament in honour of his friend, the Italian flautist Andrea Griminelli. In the 1990s he began working with simple bamboo flutes. He uses techniques such as over-blowing and hole-shading to produce note-slurring and other expressive techniques on this otherwise simple instrument. Flutter tonguing is a wind instrument tonguing technique in which performers flutter their tongue to make a characteristic FrrrrFrrrrr sound. ...

Anderson plays several other musical instruments, including acoustic and electric guitar, bass guitar, bouzouki, balalaika, saxophone, harmonica, and a variety of whistles.

He has recorded several songs on which he plays all the instruments as well as carrying out all the engineering and production (such as 1988's Another Christmas Song). His earliest foray into one-man recording was apparently on the popular Tull piece "Locomotive Breath". Unable to get his ideas across to the rest of the band verbally, he laid down percussion and guitar tracks himself before adding vocals and then bringing in the others, at a time when tracks were usually recorded with all band members in the studio. Ironically this is one of the most vital pieces on the 1971 Aqualung album and is a mainstay of Tull's stage show. 1988 (MCMLXXXVIII) was a leap year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 1971 (MCMLXXI) was a common year starting on Friday. ... ‹ The template below has been proposed for deletion. ...


Anderson's music blends styles such as folk, jazz, blues, rock and pop. His lyrics are frequently complex, (mostly) tongue-in-cheek criticism of the absurd rules of society and/or religion (Sossity, You're a Woman; Hymn 43; Thick as a Brick). He often combines lyrics with other themes and motifs: folk, mythological, fantastic (The Minstrel in the Gallery, Jack-in-the-Green, Broadsword and the Beast). In the 2000s, Anderson's songs often capture 'snapshots' of his daily life (Old Black Cat, Rocks on the Road). “Folk song” redirects here. ...

Business activities

Anderson is a successful businessman away from the music industry, and he has owned several salmon farms. His Strathaird concern, [1], based on his estate on the Isle of Skye was worth £10.7 million in the late 1990s, when parts of it began to be sold off.

Income included a payment of £209,517 following one of the rock group’s regular checks on its flow of royalties."[2]

Family Life

From 1970 to 1974, Anderson was married to Jennie Franks, a photographer who is credited with writing many of the lyrics to the song, Aqualung. Jennie Franks was Jethro Tull frontman Ian Andersons first wife, from 1970 to 1974. ...


Anderson married Shona Learoyd in 1976, described by Rolling Stone magazine as a "beautiful convent-educated daughter of a wealthy wool manufacturer" [3]. She had studied ballet for 10 years, though Anderson met her when she was working as a press officer at Jethro Tull's then record-label Chrysalis Records. She later became involved with the band's on-stage special effects. The couple have lived in a 16th-century redbrick farmhouse on the 74-acre Pophleys estate in Buckinghamshire, England, and in the Western Isles of Scotland. They currently live in Wiltshire, England. They have two children: James Anderson, also a musician, and Gael, who works in the film industry and is married to the actor Andrew Lincoln. This article is about the magazine. ...

Trivia

  • Among his interests Anderson lists protecting wildcats, especially those that have been rescued from harsh captivity; cameras, chiefly Leicas; Indian cuisine - he has written a beginner's guide, thus far published only on the Internet [4].
  • He has never taken or passed his driving test, though he lists off-road motorcycling among his interests. A character in the popular computer driving game GTA San Andreas is believed to be an homage to Anderson as he is named Jethro and wears a similar beard and bandana.

  • In an interview on the 25th anniversary edition of Aqualung in 1996, Anderson told the interviewer that he had once made what he thought was a good-spirited comment about the music of Led Zeppelin; his comment was along the lines of "combining my lyrics and Led Zeppelin's music would make for a great little rock 'n' roll band". He admitted that it was somewhat insensitive because Zeppelin lead singer Robert Plant wrote many of the lyrics to his band's songs. Whether they have reconciled remains unknown.
  • Ian Anderson has been a DJ on Planet Rock, presenting his own two-hour show Under The Influence on Sunday evenings.
  • Is one of the few notable rock musicians who play the flute, and the only one who uses it as his main instrument. Other flute players include Walter Parazaider of Chicago, Ray Thomas of the Moody Blues, Thijs van Leer of Focus and Peter Gabriel during his years with Genesis.
