Veteran rocker Ian Anderson was so poor in the early days of his career that he ate dog food to survive.

The Jethro Tull frontman struggled to find success in the mid-1960s and has revealed he went to stomach-churning lengths to make ends meet.

He tells Mojo magazine, “That was a very miserable winter… I ate dog food. I used to bulk out a can of Irish stew, which cost about sixpence, with Spillers Shapes, a chewy, biscuity dog food. You could make a can of stew last three or four days with Spillers Shapes. It was all rather sad.”
