GUITARIST ABRAHAMS LEAVES JETHRO TULL

Guitarist Mick Abrahams has left Jethro Tull and will form his own group after disagreements over musical policy.

Terry Ellis, manager of Jethro Tull, told MM:

For some time, Mick has disagreed with the basic policies, both musically and otherwise, of Jethro Tull.

A permanent replacement has not been found. At press-time the group were using various deps, including Tony Iommi from Birmingham group Earth. He stood in during the group's spot in the Rolling Stones' TV spectacular, the Rolling Stones' Rock And Roll Circus.
