Why Ian Anderson Picked Up The Flute | The Big Interview

The Jethro Tull frontman talks about why he gave up the guitar for something more unconventional

When we think “rock & roll” we usually think guitar, bass, and drums. That is until Jethro Tull and Ian Anderson came along. This week, Ian Anderson is joining Dan Rather to talk about the band’s origin and why he picked up the flute in the first place. In this special sneak peek of The Big Interview, Anderson talks about how when he heard Eric Clapton, he knew he had to give up the guitar because he could never be as good as him. This decision led him to a different instrument and ultimately, to rock & roll stardom. Find out more about his incredible life and career with the full episode this Wednesday, May 13th at 8/7c!
