Personal information

Born on: 10.09.1949

Barriemore Barlow (born Barry Barlow, 10 September 1949, Birmingham) is best known as the drummer and percussionist for the rock band, Jethro Tull, from May 1971 to June 1980.

Christened Barry, the 'Barriemore' was an affectation to suit the eccentric image of Jethro Tull, much as Jeffrey Hammond had added a second, hyphenated Hammond to his name. The second 'Hammond' was an in-joke with the band, as his mother's maiden name was also Hammond, therefore it could conceivably have been written as such.
