Jethro Tull - Did You Know?

Jethro Tull - Did You Know?February 24, 2018

Music facts, music trivia, interesting stories and much more. Introducing the "Did You Know" page about British rock band, Jethro Tull.




Jethro Tull are a British rock band that formed in Blackpool, Lancashire in 1967. At the beginning, the band played blues rock but later developed its sound to incorporate elements of hard rock and forge a progressive rock signature.

An interesting fact about Jethro Tull comes from 1989. In this year, a category of heavy metal was included in the Grammy Awards for the very first time.

Metallica performed on stage and were also expected to win the category for their 1988 album "...And Justice for All," but it was Jethro Tull who actually won the award with their 1987 album "Crest of a Knave."

As a result, many audience members were booing and laughing for a long period of time for this decision, which made things a bit awkward.
