I went to Ian Anderson's gig at Hammersmith Apollo last Friday and was pleasantly surprised to hear Sugar 'N' Spikes and Ella Guru playing through the sound system immediately before the gig started.
I'm told this is a constant feature at Tull concerts for many years. Apparently Tull were support for CB years ago in the States.

Anybody have any more information on this?

Ian is a fan of Beefheart and Zappa. Beefheart opened for Tull in 1972, and Ian later financed some of Mallard's recordings.

The story goes that Frank and Ian never reconciled before he died after Frank dissed Tull in an interview?

Read in an interview in Modern Drummer back in the 80's that Tull's drummer Barriemore Barlow was a big fan of Beefheart & Art Tripp. When Barlow found out Tripp had given up drums, and had become a chiropracter, he sent Art a drumset to try to persuade him to drum again. A number of years after reading this I happened to bump into BB and he confirmed this in our conversation.

Also when Ian worked with Mallard, Barlow played drums on some of the sessions.

I've never much been into Tull and always thought Ian Anderson was a pompous ass. I really don't know anything about him outside the Beefheart/Mallard thing. I'm guessing it was the Renaissance Festival gear and my aversion to his flute playing?

By the way, I used to be a very big Jethro Tull fan. Now I got a little bit tired of them, and my mania has faded down a bit, but I still love them.

These days I'm listening a lot to "Heavy Horses", and I have to say I clearly hear Ed Marimba/Drumbo influences on Barrie Barlow. For example the drumming on "The Mouse Police Never Sleeps" reminiscent of "Click Clack" (even if Mouse Police is 3/4), or the beautiful marimba part on "Rover"

cheers

First time I heard of the Tull/Beefheart connection I was in high school and one of the "cool" teachers asked what kind of music I was into. When I said: "Beefheart" he gasped "Omigod! I saw them open for Jethro Tull and they were horrible! The whole audience was yelling for them to stop." I've been biased ever since.

They indeed DID tour with 'Tull in '72 after Beefheart had returned from the European tour for the Spotlight Kid, they toured the south.
