Tull Show Rocked Out

I can't understand why Steve Appleford takes a negative position against Jethro Tull ("Living in the Past" review of Aug. 29); a band that has endured over 30 years.

I can count on one hand how many bands that have lasted that long. My wife and I attended the concert on Aug. 29, and yes, we're part of the 500-plus crowd that was over 40. Reading Appleford's story, I'm wondering at what point will we not be let into a concert due to our age. I found that the members of Jethro Tull had aged, and yes, Ian Anderson had lost some hair but still could produce a high-energy, quality concert. It's easy to take a negative position when you don't quite understand something.
