I have a Tull Greatest Hits cd in the car player that I keep playing.
I really enjoyed his playing on Stand Up and Benefit. He injected a great guitar tone to those releases. He also played on Aqualung and several other Tull lps and he is still around.
I noticed that he credits Leslie West of Mountain as an influence on his playing and his gear.

Any fans?

Yep - love his work with Jethro Tull.

I like Martin, I think he has a solo one out.

Jethro Tull's unique progressive rock sound definitely kicked into gear when he came around.

Of course Mick Abrahams was the guitarist on the first album, which was definitely more blues based. Martin helped give Tull its own identity.

I agree. He has his own style and sound and it has been a huge part of Tull. Very under-rated player.

Was just listening to some Tull the other day and thought Martin doesn't get much notice on how good he is and what he brought to their sound. Take a listen to his solo on Aqualung.smoking.
