    Hasn't since 1993.
    Brian Jones died in July 69, He was fired from the band in June cause of his drug abuse and the baggage that went with it.

    I don't even know the members of The Who, anymore.

    Their lead guitarist's name is still Townshend, but his first name isn't Pete.

    Its his younger brother Simon, Think they were still viable for awhile after Moon died With Kenny Jones on drums..But After Entwistle passed they're basically(To me) a trib act.

    The first time I saw Simon, he was playing in Roger Daltrey's band, open for Eric Clapton show (2010).

    I thought Daltrey's set was MUCH better.

    Then remember Barrie(more) Barlow, one of the great totally unappreciated drummers in rock.

    I saw Barre in the '70s, not sure what year. It was not long after Aqualung. We went to so many shows/concerts in the '60s and '70s that it's kind of a blur.
    He was playing a Burst,and it sounded wonderful to me. I have always felt that he was way under-rated. The show was very good, they were tight and the crowd was digging them.
    Somewhere in my many boxes full of 35mm slides I have @ rolls of pics from the show...many taken from the stage.

    This is the Lester that started it for me. Great picture in the Living in the Past album, one look and down the rabbit hole I went!

    Killer player,,, Killer guitar...

    Tull would not be the same without Martin...

    This Was has a couple of good songs on it and Stand up is really good. Benefit is my favorite though.

    So did Martin coin the term "Barre chord"?

    I was lucky enough to see Jethro Tull Live in Sydney in 1995.

    In two words.........outstandingly awesome.

    That was, for me, a memorable Concert & I’ve been lucky enough to see quite a few of the great Bands over the years.

    :cheers2:
