14. Jethro Tull saved my life!

Well... my romantic life. Starting in fourth grade and all thru the rest, I was the only boy in school playing flute. For so many years it was not cool to be me. Then suddenly with Ian Anderson prancing around in his boots and bathrobe, the other kids (and girls!) began to see the flute as a cool, rocking instrument!

Thanks Ian, and Tull for helping me morph from flute section band nerd... to a rock prince...at least thru high school!

(But luckily, not many years later, I discovered the world of irish flute, and band like the Chieftains, Bothy Band, Boys of the Lough...)

thanks, hobbit709, for sparking the memories!
