Jethro Tull without Martin Barre is like Led Zeppelin without Jimmy Page. Period. End of story. End of debate.

Martin is the genius behind Tull; a fantastic musician, composer, and arranger. His new album Away With Words is masterful. On a personal note, he is gracious, kind, and approachable. I have spoken with Martin many times and he always has the time to talk and shows genuine interest. This article shows the kindness Martin has and the team player Martin is.

@TullTruth -- dude, have you even read the article above?
Regardless of all your other points that you are stretching to make, Martin Barre seems very gracious, articulate and well spoken in this interview.
You keep repeating the phrase "sad broken man" ad nauseaum, but there's nothing to indicate any of that in this article.
Troll much?

Well, looks like we struck a nerve.

Went to visit your board, seems there is a few of them, but I recognized some of your name. I am not sure who was banned, not me as I have never heard of it before. Nice pictures, did you hire that one guy to put up pictures of the venues so you can find them? Seems there are not enough contributors to field a baseball team.

Martin is a sad broken man, have you seen those videos of him and the wannabees trying to play Tull songs.

So tell you Martin fans, why is this contribution of his musical prowess so absent from his solo stuff? Because Jethro Tull is Anderson with any four other backing guys.

What a sad broken little man, trying to rewrite history, when Anderson spent time making it.

You know I don't know you (thank god), I don't know who this Nags is, what I'd know is I can make a point without having to resort to language like you use in public.

Inferior guitarist attract inferior fans. You can't speak to the point so speak around it. The fact remains that you have a small man trying to rewrite history, unfortunately the facts are all on record.

BTW, I went to see the little man's website to check his "new" album can't generate interest among record companies? You should tell him about iTunes), they're all old songs. No Ian to help him.

Martin is a legend and a genius ,
The last great album by Tull was way back in 1987 ,Crest of a Knave.

Tull have not 'moved on anywhere since' in reply to the 'TullGoon' comments below.

Without Martins sublime playing = Tull would have had no grammy.

Andersons loss and whilst TAAB2 is purely mediocre,must be a much bigger drag to have someone else sing your parts for you,because the voice is none existent now.

Nice interview with Martin, a guitarist who should command much greater respect and acknowledgement than he already does. I wish him well with his endeavours.

As for the comment below from the TullTroll, it simply demonstrates why clowns like him get themselves banned from decent Tull Boards.

What a sad little man. Must be a drag to see Tull move on, he has a rehash, Ian delivers TAAB2, must suck Martin!
