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.

I just don't get it. Why don't you play some Kid Rock or Foo Fighters? Those guys can are really creative.

 

 are you for real? That's like putting the Backstreet Boys on the same level as the Beatles.
Since when is age indicative of musical quality? Well I guess then by that logic, Mozart and Beethoven suck.

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

I saw him speak twice: once in 1976 at my college and again in the early 80s in SF. But that second one was during his stint as a (no kidding) stand up comedian.

This is the one song that sums up my life experiences. My theme song if I ever had one.

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!
