    The number of classic rock fans here is interesting...and perhaps a little disturbing. lol

    On a Jethro Tull note, my dad saw them perform once in Edmonton, and who opened for them but...the Eagles. This is before they became huge, and my dad said the Eagles just were unreal.

    And then Jethro Tull started playing - and it seemed like a magical night. At least to my dad and the fans, it seemed like every song, every note, every jam was just "on". My dad said it was the best show he had ever seen.

    The best part is that years later, a reporter asked the guys from Jethro Tull what was the best show they had ever done...and they said Edmonton was definitely up there - it was a "magical" night.

    Pretty cool when the artist and the fans agree on live quality...
