The new issue of Prog is on sale today. In it we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Jethro Tull: Prog speaks to Ian Anderson to discuss the band’s impressive and enduring career, and also to look behind the making of the band’s Heavy Horses album as it turns 40 this year. Anderson also reviews every single studio album of Jethro Tull’s especially for Prog. Plus he allows us to dip into his archives to compile a special and rarely seen Tull scrapbook for your enjoyment.
