    Awesome. 20 bucks for what was probably a good seat at a great venue. Those were the days.

    #102 10 months ago

    Give me Dr. Dre Pin for my hip-hop themed pin.

    I'd pony up cash for a Yellowman pin right now. Zzz-zzug-zzug-zzugzen multiball. No body move no body get hurt ball save. Morning Ride (like midnight madness on other pins). Not to mention the tumor removal success extra ball which disables half the playfield temporarily. It'd be a hit with all the kiddies.

    Now $20 is a "service charge" for your privilege of buying a ticket.

    I saw Metallica twice there around the same time and although they were great, I was more impressed with that Jethro Tull show.

    Haters gonna hate, but Tull was one of the best touring rock acts at that time.

    I only hate that I didn't see em.

    I saw CSN there too around the same time shortly after Crosby got his new liver and what a show that was!

    Best Tull song:

    Sweet Dream

    #110 10 months ago

    "Ian Anderson is accompanied by Tull band musicians David Goodier (bass), John O'Hara (keyboards), Florian Opahle (guitar), Scott Hammond (drums) and surprise virtual guests"

    .............surprise virtual guests.

    Does that make anyone else besides me nervous?

    I figured it was Zamfir but the dude is still alive!

    Do you have to be dead to be a "virtual guest"?

    Perhaps a hologram Martin Barre?

    No ZZTop are still alive. They have a Milli Vanilli way of putting on concerts anymore.

    I saw ZZ Top at the Houston rodeo in 2007. It was obvious nobody was playing rhythm guitar or synthesizer. It's like some kind of open secret. They can only play their pre-80s stuff live as a three-piece without a backing track.

    I'd like to think Billy is actually singing.

    If not then why not.

    Sure I'd rather have that than an Iron Maiden!

    Quoted from jfre81:

    They couldn't even do that when they did their Super Bowl halftime show. Lip syncing studio tracks was about as low as it gets.

    Sometimes there are musicians playing behind or under the stage. I've seen this many times.

    NO FLUTES!

    It made it to page three and is finally back in the all pinball sub-forum.

    Thanks! So there is a chance....

    #120 10 months ago

    I think it's time to start getting a song list together.

    Is there room in pinball for a "Fat Man" mode?

    Aren't they all?

    #122 10 months ago

    I love early Tull, Aqualung is okay but over-rated. War Child is weak although it did produce one "hit" song. To me they were done being interesting by 1975.

    A pin would not be a good idea.

    This sounds like pretty much the same story for every music themed pinball machine that is already out there and they seem to sell fairly well.

    I vote for Mr Bungle. They already have pinball sound effects in their songs...

    Metallica fans world wide sat pissed and in disbelief. Hard rock / Heavy Metal..... Jehtro Tull.... still shaking my head. Imbeciles!

    #129 10 months ago

    To be fair the category was hard rock/ metal performance meaning one or the other. And although not metal they were certainly rocking hard the night I saw them in 1988. And a superior performance as well. So maybe in reality it was the correct call.

    I would break my Stern boycott for a Led Zeppelin pin.

    I'd put both games side by side, touching.

    #133 10 months ago

    Thanks for info Odin.
    Got 2 seats for the Greek show. Now I don't hate that I haven't seen them.

    With a special mode where if the Metallica pin senses the Jethro presence you hear Lars Ulrich crying.

    What time will you be picking me up?

    #136 10 months ago

    Hocus Pocus by Focus. That song had a mean flute. Great song.

    #137 10 months ago

    Only if it's content pre- "A". Man, that change of direction sorta sucked.

    #138 10 months ago
    Quoted from o-din:

    I saw Tull live once at Irvine Meadows in 1988 and they were still killing it

    I saw Floyd live in 88' for $38 Aus, very similar pricing, those were the days!!

    #139 10 months ago

    Looks like I am going to see a 70 year old, Grammy winning, flute playing, rock legend at the most awesome venue in So Cal!

    Thanks jamesmc. I love it when a plan comes together.

    #140 10 months ago

    WOW!

    With all this talk about Jethro Tull i just re-listened to the entire Aqualung Album on vinyl and have to say it was amazing!! Without a doubt a top 10-15 album. This thread may want to sit back and take a few minutes to reacquaint themselves with this sound. They would do a machine proud but it maybe to a limited audience that still remember what a true rock band sounds like. Tull had sound that could change with each album ........ probably because the lineup of musicians changed every couple of years.

    on a side note ......does anybody remember what Metallica did to combat the scourge of music piracy when napster brought about file sharing?

    #141 10 months ago

    they quit making good music......
    lol

    #142 10 months ago

    After thinking on it, I'm holding out for the Steely Dan pinball.

    #143 10 months ago

    I’m going to see Tull here in St Louis in June. I haven’t seen them in a while. I’m looking forward to it.

    i think it is just Ian Anderson now that he fired Martin Barre .

    Quoted from vid1900:

    Switch that to Danzig style vocals and heavier guitar and base and you have some dark solid metal.

    #146 10 months ago

    NO. Another Metallica fan here that will never forget.. Why hasn’t “Classic Rock” become golden oldies or ancient rock?
    You probably could sell a few thousand Tull machines, but no way could sell on to next generation.
    And Metallica was quite prescient in their anti-Napster stance, it helped the Apples of the world but killed the cd/album concept. Plus they only made $2 billion, probably cost them another 10.

    With the tech available, couldn’t they make a jukebox/pin? Backlight changes to whatever artist mode you pick. Internet connected, so band gets a royalty immediately. Have to survive Drake, Katy Perry to get Bruno Mars, Pink-survive that get U2, Pearl Jam- survive that get...

    Not sure what you are getting at as Metallica is "classic rock". As is every other music pinball machine so far.

    Time sure does fly while you are having fun.

    #148 10 months ago
    Quoted from mnpinball:

    Because that would not sell....
    The only hip-hop pin that would sell would be Beastie Boys.

    Meh. A Death Row Records pin with a bunch of artists from that label's start would probably sell well.

    #149 10 months ago

    Fun fact: Andrew Lincoln (Walking Deads Rick Grimes) is married to Ian Anderson's daughter

    #150 10 months ago

    Acid rock of the early 70's lead to Heavy Metal to me, Odin do you remember Uriah heap, used to listen to them and Tull a lot in the 70's.
