    Quoted from bkbirge:

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

    The crying should be heard but not announced. During gameplay. Fun.

    No. I think the music genre in general is getting over done right now. Lets get more original themes like dialed in.
    Thanks

    Foo Fighters are way more relevant

    One of the best live acts out there now.

    Maybe Stern will pick up the license.

    #154 2 years ago

    Lets just end this "argument" by listing the bands that have far more universal appeal/relevance/music catalog/large market draw/influence than Jethro Tull, Budgies, Uriah Heap, or Foo Fighters. These are listed in no particular order but as a music fan would succeed FAR more than the others.

    Jimi Hendrix
    Pink Floyd
    Doors
    U2
    Led Zeppelin
    OZZY/Black Sabbath
    Rush
    The Beatles
    Pearl Jam/Soundgarden/Alice in Chains/Nirvana (Grunge machine)

    We could end this argument if you were to leave this thread and start your own.

    Quoted from o-din:

    If not then why not.

    Sorry I was posing the "why not's" like you asked, simply many other bands ahead of Jethro Tull that have more universal Appeal. I like your threads but I don't support your position and I don't think I am the only one who thinks Jethro Tull as the NEXT music pin is a terrible idea and would be a flop....

    #157 2 years ago

    As long as nothing from the "A" album is included I would be all for having a Tull pin.

    Well, I already tried to get Hendrix done, and even with overwhelming support it did not happen. And after you initially posted I have noticed your multiple thumbs down throughout this thread so it shows me something about this band must really bother you.

    On the other hand there has been a lot of support from other members so I'd like to see this play on out.

    #159 2 years ago

    To answer the original question...............no.

    I actually like Jethro Tull and listened to them alot as a teenager. But my reason for thumbs down is not against the band it is against the ridiculous idea that of all of the bands out there Jethro Tull is the next MOST relevelant and popular band that would support great sales in the Pinball World. I highly doubt there is any Stern or Jersey Jack scramble to get the rights to produce a Jethro Tull pinball machine. The market simply is not there no matter how good their songs are. Its just reality. Am I the only one that thinks this way???????

    Saw Tull in 1978 in Ohio for $7.......was awesome
    Saw Tull in 1999 in Vegas for $40.......was great show except for the 2 blabbing girls by us
    Saw Tull in 2012 billed as Ian Anderson for $65 in Florida......played Thick as a Brick in it's entirety and then played his follow up album Thick as a Brick 2 in it's entirety.....decent 2012 album and fairly current.
    Still listen to his albums. Timeless.

    Added over 3 years ago: that was 1976 in Ohio

    #165 2 years ago

    I saw Tull in 1980 at Madison Square Garden. He had a new band (except for Martin Barre) and more of a techno sound touring for the A album. Eddie Jobson was on keyboards and electric violin. I am a fan of his but he didn't belong in Tull. Horrible concert.

    I saw them again in 1982 in New Haven Ct. and again around 1990 in Troy, NY. Much better concerts than the first time I saw them.

    #166 2 years ago

    Eddie Jobson in Roxy Music was awesome, liked that clear violin he played back in the day, saw them 3 times, what a treat.

    Listened to Tull Benefit on the way to work today, great album.

    Lucky man. And others. I never used to like lucky man when I was younger. Now. The ending of that song played very loud. With Pinball. Today!

    #168 2 years ago

    There is an even better idea, a Beavis and Butthead pinball...

    Make it a combo theme pin

    All I got to say is Stern got it right by doing a Metallica pin....the Grammy’s couldn’t get it right when they gave the award for best “Heavy Metal” band to Jethro Tull back in the 80’s.....what a joke that was.

    #173 2 years ago

    If you say so.

    #174 2 years ago

    Please no. I can just imagine....snot Multiball.

    #175 2 years ago
    Quoted from Pickle:

    the Grammy’s couldn’t get it right

    Seriously, why would they give an award to a band who had just released a terribly produced and so far their worst album?

    #176 2 years ago

    How about Road Manager. These guys toured with different bands, different years. You can license songs cheaper. Owners could customize to their liking. Locomotive Breath multiball?

    #177 2 years ago

    I can remember that award and thinking wtf. I never considered Tull as heavy metal, more of orchestral/jazz/rock but definitely not metal.

    But the musical quality of Ian's is so enjoyable, different, and unique.

    Only saw him live once at a fair concert 2008?? Had terrible seats, sound levels poor, and seemed short with many songs I had never heard before. Ya win some loose some.
    I still enjoy listening to him any time though and would definitely love to see a Minstrel in the gallery pin.

    #178 2 years ago

    I saw Jethro Tull do Aqualung (and older stuff) in 10/71 and very few of the over a thousand concerts since were even close...

    When Metallica won a grammy for best heavy metal album they thanked Jethro Tull for not putting out an album that year.

    I still can’t decide if this thread is meant to be taken at face value.

    A Jethro Tull pinball game? I think the band is ok, but wouldn’t ever consider that it should be the theme of a pinball machine. I guess we can all throw out our favorite band and lobby for them.

    I submit, for your consideration, the Replacements pinball game. Why not? They’re a hell of a lot better than Jethro Tull.

    I'm not convinced Tull would make a great pin, but these guys--just maybe...

    #186 2 years ago

    Choose songs from 5 great artist, replace the horrible noise from Irom Madden , now you have a great pin. Replaced Metallica with 15 LED ZEPPELIN songs, and it’s great!

    A little update on this.

    So we went to see Tull at the Greek a few weeks back. The drive to LA is never something to look forward to, especially on a Friday evening, but we did it and got there on time. Nice crowd of mostly older folks (older than us), but as always the Greek is a top notch venue to see any show.

    Ian Anderson looks his age, but was still able to perform at a high level and the set consisted of songs to please just about everybody. And he had a great sense of humor. The "virtual guests" were ex band members and other inspired musicians that would appear on the big screens next to the stage between songs and included Tony Iommi and Steve Harris.

    I was really enjoying it and was very impressed. However somewhere about half way thru Too Old To Rock and Roll, it hit me. This was what I was into 40 years ago and had already seen them in the mid 80s. So we split a little early to beat the traffic out of there and got home in a flash.

    So should Jethro Tull be the next band machine? Perhaps. But heck, if they can sell as many Iron Maidens and Metallicas as they have been, then why not? Give the people what they want!

    #188 2 years ago

    ODin, you are truly too old to rock n roll, but too young to die.

    #189 2 years ago

    Yes.......and life’s a long song......
    But the tune ends too soon for us all...

    #190 2 years ago

    Lovin' me some JT...Aqualung still gets me going along with Windup and Locomotive Breath...BRING IT!!!

    #191 2 years ago

    How about a pin where you only get one ball, but it's guaranteed to last forty-three minutes?

    #192 2 years ago
    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    ODin, you are truly too old to rock n roll, but too young to die.

    More like too old to drive to Los Angeles, and getting too wise to even try.

    #193 2 years ago
    Quoted from Hogey:

    Of course they did most all the hits! They killed it!

    #194 2 years ago

    I would much rather have a Pink Floyd pin over any other if they could license enough songs and it shot worth a damn.

    #195 2 years ago

    Does anybody know who the younger guest singer on the big screen who sings "Aqualung My Shadow" in that above live video two posts up is?

    Quoted from Goronic:

    I suppose if you like to sleep while you play pinball which is what I almost did at the wall concert in 1980.

    Animals was about their last great album and live show.

    Animals is definitely one of my top favorites. But, just like Tull, when these songs are playing I really prefer to get absorbed in them. Usually that is something like s long boring road trip or just sitting with headphones. I just don't really concentrate on the music in the background on pins, my brain is more focused on the gameplay and sound effects. Of course, if any of these old bands are to be made a pin - the first mod should be to add an oil projector to lull you into a comatose state.

    I don't mean any disrespect to Jethro Tull, but they were/are not mainstream enough to get a pinball machine. Not enough people would buy it.

    #199 2 years ago

    OK,wow,look-The Beatles have never been done! I have talked to many of my generation(I'm 68) and we all would like a up to date,done correctly,( and this leaves out Stern)Beatles pin!Yeah,yeah,I've seen them,and the Stones,and Tull,here in the Bay area long before most of you were born!!!You guys are going sideways with this Metal Band stuff! Never been a fan of shaving my head and lighting up your Bick when your heroes show up!And crazily nodding your head up and down will do in your vertebrae and promote pain in the neck,as what this thread is all about ! Peace!

    Quoted from AVH7401:

    What Iron Maiden songs were as mainstream as Bungle in the Jungle? Or even Aqualung or Thick as a Brick?

    And how many Grammys have they won?

    Your "not mainstream enough" argument is a moot point.
