John Evan (born John Spencer Evans, 28 March 1948, Blackpoolmarker, Lancashiremarker) played keyboards for Jethro Tull from April 1970, to June 1980. He was educated at King's College Londonmarker.

He changed his name when his first band, The Blades, changed their name to The John Evan Band. Jeffrey Hammond apparently thought 'The John Evan Band' sounded better than 'The John Evans Band'.

Whilst a member of Jethro Tull, Evan had a penchant for wearing his trademark white suit, along with a yellow shirt underneath and a pink-and-yellow polka-dot tie. Evan can be seen wearing this outfit in photographs on the album War Child and the live album Bursting Out, while a painted version of him is seen wearing the suit and tie on the inside cover of the album Aqualung.

Evan left Jethro Tull in 1980, forming Tallis with fellow departing Tull member David Palmer. After many years running his own construction company he now resides in Australia. He also appeared in the 2008 DVD, 'Jethro Tull - Their Fully Authorised Story'.
