Okay, I KNOW I've remarked on this before, but there sure are a lot of Ians in rock'n'roll. Just last night, I picked up three of them. Ian Astbury of the Cult, Ian McCulloch of Echo & The Bunnymen (the album, I just noticed, is produced by an Ian Broudie), and Ian MacKaye of Fugazi. Off the top of my head, I'm thinking of course next of Scott Ian (the other way 'round) of Anthrax, and I'm pretty sure there was an Ian in King Crimson. Usually not just an Ian, though; the frontman of most bands with an Ian is said Ian. Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull, for example.
What other famous musical Ians am I forgetting? List of albums updated.
