Born on the 10th August, 1947 Anderson spent some time of his childhood in Edinburg, Scotland. His interest in music developed through his father's band and various jazz records that he would listen to when he was young. It was during this time that he developed a liking for rock ‘n’ roll and got inspired by the work of super stars like Elvis Presley. After moving to England in 1959, he joined the Blackpool Grammar School and later went on to study fine arts at the Blackpool College of Art till 1966. While he was still in college in 1963 he formed a band titled, "The Blames" which included his friends John Evan on keyboards, Barriemore Barlow on drums, Michael Stephens on guitar and Jeffrey Hammond on bass. The band came up with both soul and blues music and was appreciated by a lot of people.
Ian Anderson is also known for his signature move of standing on one leg while playing the flute. This stunt that later became a famous part of his live shows actually came about by accident when he stood on one leg and held the microphone in order to maintain balance during one of his performances. When this incident at the Marquee Club was described by a journalist, he wrongly assumed that it was a deliberate act after which the artist decided to make it his signature move in spite of the difficulty he faced. The singer is extremely talented in playing a number of different instruments and has recorded many songs playing them. He even started playing the simple bamboo flutes at one time. He enthralled audiences by using various techniques like over-blowing and other expressive methods to make the instrument sound better.
