According to Launch Radio Networks, LED ZEPPELIN is among the artists who have been nominated for induction to the Songwriters Hall Of Fame.

The organization cited Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and the late John Bonham for defining "the emerging rock genre of heavy metal" through songs including "Stairway To Heaven", "Whole Lotta Love", and "Communication Breakdown". Honorees will be announced in the spring, and the Songwriters Hall Of Fame induction ceremony will be held in New York City in June.

The Songwriters Hall Of Fame is "dedicated to recognizing and honoring the accomplishments and lives of those men and women who create the popular songs that serve as the soundtrack of our lives."

Ian Anderson on tour

New twist to classic rock

Ian Anderson, of Jethro Tull fame, performs with orchestra

BY TOM LOUNGES
Times Correspondent This story ran on nwitimes.com on Friday, October 13, 2006 12:37 AM CDT 

Vocalist/flutist Ian Anderson -- who founded Jethro Tull in 1968 -- is in the midst of a new tour that finds him leaving his legendary prog-rock group at home.
He will be performing with a large chamber orchestra, which adds a delightful new twist to selections from Tull's classic rock songbook.

"This is a series of concerts that I've been doing over the last three or four years in parallel to the regular Jethro Tull shows," said Anderson, citing performances of the orchestral kind in such places as Iceland, Latin America, Western Europe and Eastern Europe.

It was at one such concert in Mannheim, Germany, during December 2004 that the wizened British rocker recorded his brilliant 2005 two-CD concert set, "Ian Anderson Plays The Orchestral Jethro Tull."

"I'm very proud of the album," Anderson said of this amazing 20-song collection that brings fresh life into well-worn Tull favorites.

The opportunity to bring this particular show to America finally happened this year, as Jethro Tull was on hiatus from touring, affording Anderson enough time to travel the USA.

"We did some dates earlier this year that went very well and were very enjoyable," he said. "Now I'm back again (for 23 additional shows) through the end of October doing those places we did not get to the first time around."

One of those places is the Park West in Chicago.

"Unlike my little adventures in other parts of the world, though, this time I am not playing with a different local orchestra in each place," he said. "Instead, I am traveling from city to city with the same orchestra for the whole of the tour. So instead of just having a few hours of rehearsal and reading the music in a sort of clinical way, they actually learn the music as they play it and can get into the spirit of things in a way that is not possible when you are just doing a one-off show."

As for when a new Jethro Tull group album might materialize, Anderson estimates sometime in 2007. "We were supposed to record (recently), but the other guys also do side projects and touring, so they were not available to me when I hoped to start recording," he said. "We'll get around to it soon."

In the meantime, the group's fans can enjoy "Ian Anderson Plays The Orchestral Jethro Tull" and relish the recently released "Aqualung Live!" CD, that Jethro Tull as a group, recorded last year on a closed sound stage before a small live audience.
