Jethro Tull has been close to my heart since I was like 10 years old and got my hands on a cassette tape of Bursting Out album and subsequently spent the next two years listening to it. Since starting to play drums, I never really looked at Tull’s drum parts, until now.

For some reason, Jethro Tull never comes up in topics of intricate or difficult drumming; everyone talks about Rush, Dream Theater and other heavier progressive rock and metal bands. One of the reasons might be that Jethro Tull has been even further outside the main stream than Rush and other progressive rock bands; while having a great cult following, they never got “that famous”.
