JULIE HANDS IT TO JETHRO
The group is Jethro Tull. The girl is Julie Ege, whose picture you may have seen once or twice in the past few months. The place is the penthouse suite of the Dorchester Hotel. And the reason for the meeting is the presentation, by Julie, of a Gold Album to the group for worldwide sales of more than a million of the album 'Benefit'.
But Tull-man Ian Anderson was much more keen on talking about the group's new album, out this month. It's called 'Aqualung'. One side consists of songs about people — including a tramp-like figure called Aqualung — named after the wheezing cough from which he suffers.
Jethro Tull's British tour kicked off last weekend and goes on until March 20.
Footnote: to avoid any possible confusion, Julie Ege is the one in the striped sweater.
