Cheers.

Bernhard is absolutely right. Word was that Bonham was actually in awe and intimidated by BB, and would try and avoid gigs that featured them both on the same bill.

Interesting. I never heard that although I've read John thought Barrie was quite good.

In my very humble opinion, "Thick As a Brick" is one of the greatest rock-n-roll records ever, and Barriemore's performance on it is one for the ages.

Yes I heard that also but I also heard they were good friends too. JT's "Cross Eyed Mary" & "Aqualung" are some of my favs by him.

I am pretty sure that Clive Bunker played drums on "Aqualung" and not Barriemore Barlow. Hmmm. I'll have to look that up.

Yessir I was a Jethro Tull fan when their first album came out. Always loved the drumming in Jethro Tull. Awesome. I used to listen to those early albums over and over. I thoroughly enjoyed the article linked to at the bottom of that Wikipedia page, where Ian Anderson talks about all his drummers - http://www.tullpress.com/mddec90.htm

Yep. Barriemore's first album with Tull was "Thick as A Brick". I found their sound, style and feel pretty similar - earthy, rocky timekeeping with flamboyant tom flourishes. I wonder how much of that was Ian Anderson's doing? Barriemore had to navigate the more complex arrangements; his work on TAAB was jaw-dropping in its tighness and flexibility.

Great band, although two of my favourite somgs of theirs are from the Bunker era - "My God" and "Living In The Past". My fave Barrimore work is the first 10 mins or so of TAAB.
