When the erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey was at the height of its climaxing success, Ian Anderson picked up a copy.He only made it through half of the first page before tossing it aside. In a phone interview, the Jethro Tull frontman called the best-selling novel "dreary" and "repetitive."Anderson knows a good story when he sees one. He's a master storyteller himself, and he and his band will perform one of his greatest stories at Abravanel Hall on Monday: the twilight and dawn of the life of one Gerald Bostock. Anderson and his band will present the entirety of 1972's "Thick as a Brick," and then the entirety of "Thick as a Brick II," Anderson's 2012 follow-up, subtitled "Whatever Happened to Gerald Bostock?" Bostock was a fictional 8-year-old featured in that 1972 album, one of Jethro Tull's most popular albums.
