This performance marks the first musical concert in which John Lennon performed before an audience outside THE BEATLES, as part of supergroup which also included Eric Clapton, Keith Richards and Mitch Mitchell. “The Rolling Stone Rock And Roll Circus” is also the only time Tony Iommi of BLACK SABBATH performed with Tull, and the last time Brian Jones would perform with in front of an audience.Iommi joined Jethro Tull in December 1968 after leaving Eearth, his pre-Black Sabbath band .(Blabbermouth)
Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi has revealed that he’s working on new music during a Q&A session prior to the screening of Black Sabbath’s documentary The End Of The End.
“I’m still writing stuff; I’ve put ideas down on tapes. When all this nice, sunny weather goes and it gets grim, I shall start going in the studio and putting it down. “My engineer, who I had for everything with me at home, he’s just done Judas Priest’s album. Now he’s finished that, and we’ll hopefully start again and put some ideas down. I don’t know what it’s gonna be yet — whether it’ll be an instrumental album. I’ve been approached by a lot of people to do something with them.”
“Back to Jethro Tull I learned quite a lot from Ian Anderson], I must say,I learned that you have got to work at it. You have to rehearse. When I came back and I got the Earth back together, I made sure everybody was up early in the morning and rehearsing. I used to go and pick them up. I was the only one at the time that could drive. I used to have to drive the bloody van and get them up at quarter to nine every morning, which was, believe me, early for us then. I said to them, ‘This is how we have got to do it because this is how Tull did it.”
