Legendary Jethro Tull Guitarist Martin Barre
My Freshman year of high school sucked. It was my only year at the snooty regional Catholic school. I didn’t fit in, and I was saddled with long bus rides every day. But there was a silver lining, my stoner bus driver Walt, introduced us to Progressive Rock, and all of the magic that was Jethro Tull.
