This is a killer performance by legendary Prog Rock band Jethro Tull. Absolutely genius musicians and performers the lot of them, and tight as a gnat’s chuff as they say around here.

Can you spot the very obvious link between the two songs? Classic Police! And this lot are just fun! Just for good measure I’m including a very silly pic of my youngest son wearing his comedy glasses, not that it’s … Continue reading M’s Marvellous Musical Moments – Police and Arctic Monkeys
