Ian Anderson of the rock band Jethro Tull

Editor's Note:  What a cool name for a band.  In the wiki article on the band though it doesn't seem like Ian Anderson had much to do with the choosing of it.  His gig booker chose it and the band kept it because it was the first time they were asked back someplace.
