Here’s photo of Alan Thomson With The Martin Barre Band Whilst on Tour In the USA during 2016.
Playing slide with Martin Barre during the 2015 winter tour in Plymouth Massachusetts
We thought that you’d be interested in looking at the guitars that were used on Jethro Tull’s ‘Aqualung’ and ‘Minstrel In The Gallery’.
The SG was used by Martin Barre for recording “Minstrel in the Gallery” and The Les Paul Junior is the one Martin used to play the famous “Aqualung ” riff.
Teaneck New Jersey, still in the middle of a great run of gigs. Here at Teaneck I met up with Paul Rose! Its a small world really isn’t it!!! See you all soon when I’m back in the UK.
Somewhere in America ! A Great Photo with Dan Crisp, Martin Barre and Alan Thomson at BB King’s in NYC. Looks like alot of fun! I wonder what the song was. Alan is out in the USA for a number of weeks before returning to Tour with John Jorgenson, then with JM Pentangle and then out on the road with Doug Morter. Some more photos soon we hope!
Here are a few photos of various friends who I’ve met up with on the road somewhere in Europe! For those of you who don’t know who they are here’s a few notes……
LEE SKLAR…..Leland “Lee” Sklar has been a fixture in the recording studios of L.A. for over four decades. His bass playing can be heard on over 2,000 albums (so far!) for a great many music icons, including Phil Collins, Billy Cobham, Rod Stewart, Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor, Hall & Oates, Jackson Browne, Tommy Bolin, David Bowie, Ray Charles, B.B. King, The Doors, Peter Frampton, Aaron Neville, Lyle Lovett and countless others. He has also played bass for many TV shows, including Hill Street Blues, The Rockford Files, L.A. Law, Knight Rider and Simon & Simon, and has performed on the soundtracks of many motion pictures, including Forrest Gump, Ghost, Kindergarten Cop, and My Best Friend’s Wedding. He was the bass player for the band Toto in 2007 and 2008, filling in for an ailing Mike Porcaro. Lee continues to be a mainstay in the L.A. studio scene, showing no signs of slowing down.
DAVE PEGG.……As a teenager, Dave became involved in Birmingham’s vibrant 60s rock scene. He soon found himself playing guitar most evenings with one or other of the city’s young bands. Later, Dave auditioned as a lead guitarist with The Uglys but was persuaded to swap to bass guitar and has played the instrument ever since.
After a spell with The Uglys, Dave joined the Ian Campbell Folk Group on double bass and met fiddle maestro Dave Swarbrick by whom he was introduced to Fairport Convention. He joined them and has been in the band ever since.
In 1980, he joined Jethro Tull as bass player and spent 15 years with the band. As if playing in two bands was not enough, he set up Woodworm Records to produce and market Fairport’s albums. He also recorded a solo album.
Dave has also co-organised Fairport’s Cropredy festival since the early 1980s. From small beginnings, it has grown into a major event that attracts 20,000 fans each August.
As well as recording and touring with Fairport Convention and Jethro Tull, Dave is much in demand as a session player and has contributed bass to innumerable recordings. He is also an accomplished mandolin player.
ALAN THOMSON……As a Bass player Alan was another long-term member of John Martyn’s Band and an accomplished song-writer. His touring and writing credits include Robert Palmer, Rick Wakeman, Andy Summers, Bo Diddley, Denny Laine and Long John Baldry.
LARRY GRAHAM…..The co-founder of funk pioneers Sly and the Family Stone AND Graham Central Station.
