Jethro Who?

My grad student Amy told me about a great flute clip she'd seen on YouTube with a "weird 70's guy" playing a flute solo wearing a funny outfit and making lots of noises into the flute (see that clip here).

That "weird 70's guy" is Ian Anderson of the group Jethro Tull. He inspired a whole generation of flute players with his rendition of Bach's Bourree and "was widely recognized as the man who introduced the flute to rock music":

Geez, I feel old...
