Music today has been Jethro Tull’s classic album Aqualung (1971), their fourth album, and it was this one that had them break through to a bigger audience. The band at this time was Ian Anderson on vocals, flute, and acoustic, Martin Barre on electric guitar, John Evan on keys, and new bassist Jeffrey Hammond-Hammond after Glenn Cornick moved on (allegedly fired for his partying live style). Hammond-Hammond was so named because his mother’s maiden name was the same as his father’s surname. Clive Bunker was on the drums, it would be Bunker’s last album for the band, replaced by Barriemore Barlow, leaving the band for the opposite reason to Clive Bunker, he got married.
