Prog magazine returns to the newsagent shelves today with issue 74, and we are so glad to be back with you. In the year they celebrate the 40th anniversary of Songs From The Wood, and with a brand new The String Quartets album, we feature Jethro Tull on the cover. In some of the most honest interviews yet, Ian Anderson and Martin Barre discuss the band’s enduring career, evolving stylistic shifts over the years and finally talk about the split that saw them no longer playing in the band after over 40 years together. And with the likes of Mick Abrahams, Tony Iommi, Dave Pegg, Jeffrey Hammond and more shedding light on their time in Tull, it’s a real must-read for fans.
