Ian Anderson, Jethro Tull, 1972.

“While Jagger was teasing sex-provocateur — youth at its most decadent — Anderson suggested total depravity and filth-society at its lowest ebb. His hair a wild, matted mane, his clothes a cross between an embankment tramp and a raggle Errol Flynn, Anderson on stage could have stepped out of society’s worst nightmare: the one who wouldn’t be pushed into a corner – a demented degenerate totally lacking any sense of moral decency.” ~ “A Tull Story”, NME, July 1, 1972
