3 O’clock School of Rock – 7/24

Back in the 60s, it wasn’t uncommon for a band’s name to be supplied by the booking agent.  One Grammy-winning rock band can thank a booking agent – who was a history buff – for naming them after an 18th century agriculturist.  The band stuck with the name, because the club manager liked them enough to book them for a second show.  What is the band that got its start in the 60s and is named after an agriculturist?

 

Answer:  Jethro Tull
