Ian Anderson remembers Jethro Tull sharing bill with Led Zeppelin

Jethro Tull is back in the United States again today for another tour. Singer/floutist Ian Anderson and guitarist Martin Barre have made a habit of touring the United States for many years, going back to the days when they shared bills with Led Zeppelin in 1969.

Today, Anderson remembers getting on well with most of the members of Led Zeppelin but admits the relationship between him and Robert Plant might not have gotten off to a good start. And although offstage antics distanced the two bands, he still has a big respect for Plant's vocal abilities and looks.

More of Anderson's interview, including tons more about his experiences with and opinions of Led Zeppelin, are to be included shortly on an episode of the syndicated radio series "Get the Led Out" with Carol Miller. To locate a station near you, visit
