Jethro Tull in Space Will Rock Uranus Off


Astronaut Cady Coleman and Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson performed the first ever space-earth musical duet earlier this month. Their rendition of Jethro Tull’s “Bourée” celebrated the 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin becoming the first astronaut in space. People laughed at Cady when she said she wanted to bring her flute onto the International Space Station, but who’s laughing now? More Tull after the jump because you freaks need something to jam to on 4/20.
