The Who are currently touring as guests of Guns n Roses in South America.  I got roped in to chaperoning my 15 yr old daughter to the show - she was there primarily for GnR but was very impressed by Daltrey and Townshend, as were the rest of the youngsters, I suspect.

Of course, for GnR the crowd was all fists in the air and headbanging, but for The Who the mass was visibly throbbing, in more of a party mood.

These two septuagenarians put everything into it and clearly still have what it takes to get people's adrenalin going. The same energy they had in their 20s. Astounding. 

Also astounding that the stadium was half empty when they came on - but local paper blamed that on the 18:00 start.. a lot of folks still commuting from work at that time.

The radio version I remember from 1970 had a pregnant pause. In this version, it's filled with a piano riff. Interesting.

Maybe so... but the Entwistle bass hook, Moon's drumming, and Daltrey's vocals... ok, this is a subdued Pete Townshend performance. If all pop drivel grooved like this, the world would be a pretty awesome place.  Kid Rock indeed!

I always thought that this was the first stereo 45 issued in UK although they had been available in the US since about '58.  Anyway it was the first in my collection and I remember being amazed when I first played it - still love it - 8.5 & 10 for the opening.

http://www.thewurzels.com/disco.htm - I looked. . . I don't believe they did a cover. . . 

On the flip side though, I recently re-bought this album after selling my vinyl some decades ago and Mrs Poacher and I rocked out and pretended to stick our heads in a bass bin.
