Yep, and in the end they had to replace a lot of the music anyway.

When it comes to the Who, I like them pre Tommy. As to an actually track, it's a tie between Pictures of Lily and their cover of Dancing In The Streets. Pete Townsend annoys the shit out of me as well. He is beyond pompous.

Oh, I agree completely. And Daltrey is no slouch in that department himself.

Do you have/have you heard the 2 disc anniversary edition? The first disc is all the pre-tommy era stuff, and the second disc is a full length live version of tommy from beginning to end.

It's phenomenal.


Actually it's all tommy era. See live at the Isle of Wight set. Basically they chopped the concert in 3rds and put tommy on it's own disc which I find pretty upsetting to the flow of the concert.

I remember watching him talk about Monterey Pop, saying "Hendrix didn't steal my act, he's doing my act." :roll:

Maybe, but it still kicks all kinds of ass.

When they played Glastonbury he actually claimed to have invented MySpace before the internet was around. Dude's loco!

Oh and by the way, that kiddie porn? Totally for research purposes. For like, a song. Or maybe a book. But not for personal use, no way!

Yeah, that's all really fucking weird. He was supposedly molested as a child, and if you listen to Tommy(Uncle Ernie) and some of the his other songs(there's a line in A Quick One about a 'dirty engine driver') that definitely bely a bizarre interest in the subject. It's possible he was researching some kind of project about it, but it's also true that most people who were molested end up having issues with pedophilia themselves so, yeah, there's certainly a history of a preoccupation with the subject.
