Glenn Cornick, Jethro Tull Bassist, Dies at 67


According to a statement posted on Jethro Tull's site, the bassist who played with the group since its inception until 1970, passed away from congestive heart failure.

Glenn Cornick, the original bassist of British rock band Jethro Tull, has passed away. According to a statement posted on Jethro Tull's site, the musician died on Friday, August 29 from congestive heart failure at his home in Hilo, Hawaii. He was 67.

Cornick was with Jethro Tull starting from its inception in 1967, but he left in 1970. Cornick took part in three of the band's albums, "This Was", "Stand Up" and "Benefit". Following his departure, he formed a band called Wild Turkey and later became a member of Paris.

Jethro Tull's vocalist and flautist Ian Anderson also remembered Cornick in the statement, saying that the late bassist's contribution to music world was "considerable." Anderson wrote that Cornick made appearances at Tull's fan convention to "rekindle the musical moments of the early repertoire."

"Glenn was a man of great bonhomie and ready to befriend anyone - especially fellow musicians. Always cheerful, he brought to the early stage performances of Tull a lively bravado both as a personality and a musician," Anderson said. "We will miss him hugely."

Cornick is survived by his wife Brigitte Martinez-Cornick of Hilo, sons Drew and Alex Cornick, and a daughter Molly Cornick.
