Martin Barre (1946- )

Martin Lancelot Barre (born 17 November 1946, in Kings Heath, Birmingham, West Midlands, England) is an English rock musician.

  • Martin Barre's vegetarianism was reported in the Jethro Tull 1995 tourbook. Also it was said on the concerts.
  • from FAQ [undated]: How do I keep fit? I love running particularly on tour when each day presents new scenery. I run 4-5 miles a day. My other love is tennis. Julie, my wife is a formidable opponent! I became vegetarian for many years, which also helped. These days I am a little more flexible with my diet.
  • from Dec 1999 News: Martin Barre has enjoyed a week of participating in one of his unmentionable sporting pursuits. He asked for this not to be specifically named due to the bloodthirsty nature of the activity but it seems like one weird thing for a vegetarian to be doing, if you ask me or Paul McCartney.
