We love promoting local talent on Phoenix FM but that doesn’t mean we can’t get to feature music royalty when we get the chance.
Drive presenter Stewart Pink spent some quality time with progressive rock legend Ian Anderson for an exclusive interview.
Ian is the lead singer and driving force behind Jethro Tull, who have sold an estimated 60 million albums worldwide since their formation in 1967.
The band are now ready to release The Zealot Gene, their first new studio album in 19 years, on Friday.
As well as talking about the new tunes, Ian spoke about recording from home and how he drew inspiration from the bible. He also spoke about the vinyl revival – and how he prefers to listen to music on a digital device instead of the old-fashioned way.
Stewart celebrated the interview with a special edition of his Saturday night Rock Show, which you can hear again at www.phoenixfm.com.
