    Not to hijack the thread but... a couple years ago I was surfing Wikipedia and somehow ended up reading about Gentle Giant and from there to Gary Green. They mentioned his birthday, and I realized it was his birthday that very day. They also mentioned the town where he was living in Illinois. I looked in an online phone book and found the listing. I realized I could call Gary Green and wish him a happy birthday. I didn't though. Woulda been wierd. :)

    Ian Anderson in the interview that came with the album I bought said Martin Barre played one of those cheap plastic recorders like everyone played in grade school. I'm not sure if he played as well, or it's Flute+Recorder, but there's recorder in there:

    "Inside Out" by Canadian band Crash Vegas.(Their original bassist, heard here, was Jocelyne Lanois, Daniel Lanois's sister.)

    I'd find some cool recorder music from the middle ages and learn it. It would be kinda cool on acoustic instead of the lute.

    At first, I did not get the joke and was going to say that Peter Moore has to be pretty obscure. :p

    Surprise for you: the Troggs actually used an ocarina for the solo on that song, with lead singer Reg Presley
    playing the instrument:

    ---Chris Britton, guitarist with the Troggs, to the Sydney Morning Herald in 2015.
