MRD8 Joey,
I'll definitely pay to see The Who on this years tour...I haven't yet seen them without Entwhistle...I see them everytime they come close to Florida...first saw them in 1967! I've been watching the Camden, NJ proshot DVD from July 27, 2002 a lot since I got it in last week...Pete is fucking amazing on that tour! Maybe I'll B&P a few copies of it here as their tour gets closer...
03-23-04 05:56 PM
MRD8 Did you notice that they didn't play Behind Blue Eyes? Probably the first time they haven't played it in thirty years...I guess they left it out for Real Good Looking Boy...

Hannalee Review from The Times:


March 24, 2004

The Who
By David Sinclair
Pop
Forum, NW5





WHAT does it take to finish off a rock’n’roll band these days? Not even the death of half the group prevented The Who from stepping back into the ring on Monday for their first show in England since the demise of the bass player John Entwistle two years ago. Age does not seem to bother them much; it is 39 years since their first hit, and singer Roger Daltrey turned 60 this month. Nor has infirmity stopped them in their tracks — the guitarist Pete Townshend, 58, is so deaf he cannot hear a telephone ring at three paces.
Other troubles have been similarly brushed aside — turned to their advantage even.Townshend’s reputation was not exactly enhanced when he received a caution after he admitted paying for child porn by credit card, but the trauma seems to have provided him with new creative life.



Finding himself with extra time on his hands when the police confiscated his computer, he returned to songwriting, and has apparently composed enough material for The Who to be planning an album. Next year may see the release of their first collection of new songs since It’s Hard in 1982.

Unlike previous Who reunions, which have been strictly one-off, their return at the Forum this week marks the start of a full 18-month schedule of touring and recording. The level of commitment seemed to have been ramped up accordingly, and as they started with a lean, powerful version of Who Are You they sounded like a band that has rediscovered its sense of purpose.

With Entwistle replaced by the session bass player Pino Palladino, and Zak Starkey continuing to inhabit the drum stool left vacant by the late Keith Moon, the line-up was completed by the group’s longstanding, semi-detached keyboard player John Bundrick and Townshend’s younger brother Simon on rhythm guitar. But it was Townshend Sr whirling his arm in that familiar windmilling motion, and Daltrey twirling his mike like a cowboy lassooing a steer, who dominated as they reeled off a string of hits from their 1960s heyday including I Can’t Explain, Substitute and Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere.

With Entwistle gone, the chemistry between these two old stagers has changed, and while there was little eye contact, it was noticeable how close they stayed together onstage. But the new blood played its part in reinvigorating a set which was comprised mostly of old favourites. Starkey negotiated the twists and mountainous crescendoes that Townshend’s songwriting demands with surefooted grace, particularly on Baba O’Riley. Daltrey forgot the words to Love Reign O’er Me. “It’s one of those moments that comes with the bus pass,” he joked. But the performances of Behind Blue Eyes, 5.15 and You Better, You Bet were tidy, economical and all the more dramatic for the avoidance of too many barnstorming heroics.

After so many years of winging it for the odd big occasion, they seemed determined to get it right at last. And yes, they played The Kids Are Alright.

The Who play the Forum tonight and tomorrow, and the Albert Hall on Monday

Townsend's Stress Apparent in BBC Show

LONDON - Pete Townshend has said he considered suicide after his arrest on suspicion of possessing child pornography, and the stress he suffered was apparent in a BBC documentary shown Tuesday night.

The program, following police investigations of several different child pornography cases in Britain, briefly focused on The Who co-founder's ordeal.

He was arrested in 2003 as part of Operation Ore - the British arm of an FBI-led crackdown on Internet child pornography - and eventually cleared of possessing pornographic images of children. But the rock guitarist was placed on a national register of sex offenders as part of the formal police caution that he received for accessing a Web site containing images of child abuse.

The "Police Protecting Children" documentary series by the British Broadcasting Corp. showed an exhausted and deeply worried Townshend being questioned by police after scores of journalists gathered to watch his house being searched, and computer equipment removed for the investigation.

Dressed in a winter jacket and a T-shirt, with deep bags under his eyes, Townshend apologizes for having gone onto the Web site for research aimed at starting a campaign against child pornography.

"The first images I stumbled upon ... really burned me up," said Townshend, 58. "One in particular showed a young boy being sodomized. I think that's about the worst thing I've ever seen. I was angered by it," he said. "I thought my son, who is a young boy, could easily stumble on this."

Sighing deeply, he said: "I apologize for the trouble I've caused. I feel terrible about it. I was trying to do something useful, and I was foolish and stupid, and arrogant is perhaps the word."

After the ordeal, Townshend told a British newspaper that it had been so difficult "if I had had a gun, I would have shot myself."

Following the four-month investigation, police said Townshend "was not in possession of any downloaded child abuse images" but had accessed a site containing such images in 1999.

He acknowledged using his credit card to enter a Web site advertising child pornography but he denied being a pedophile and said he was doing research for his autobiography and the campaign against child pornography.

Honky Tonk Man Tickets were £35 each. Quite expensive for that venue actually, but then again, it is the Who!

They were on at 8.30 sharpish and I'm guessing they played for around 2 hours or just under. What can I say really? They were great! The venue was really hot, a lot hotter than usual and I have come to the conclusion that many Who fans don't wash.

They kicked off with an awesome version off Who Are You. It was all Windmill guitars and a lot of crashing and bashing about. Despite the fact that I physically felt quite uncomfortable, it was one of the best shows I have ever been too. Roger and Pete are both in great shape and both can sing and play guitar respectively as good as they ever could. Roger has lost some of the howl and I noticed that his shoulders are ever so slightly hunched now, but he was magnificent. I do wonder whether his cockney talk is put on a bit though. Maxy is right about the new song. It is terrible. There is a tune there, but it's just so dull. Bad news is that it's going to be a single!

I thought the crowd was actually pretty tame and wasn’t really getting into it until they played Won't Get Fooled Again and My Generation. It was great that they played one of their greatest Mod - Era anthems, The Kids Are Alright! I honestly wasn't expecting this, but WHY HY did Pete Townsend ruin it with a long rant at the end about how he loves his kids, how YOU should love his kids and how you should love every kid?

Anyone who thinks they should pack it in because of only two members are off their head! This band still has it and with all the manly hugging between Roger and Pete at the end is anything to go by, they love playing together. I thought Zak Starkey was great. He even copied Keith moons style of holding the drumsticks.

To be just feet away from Pete Townsend and Roger Daltery is a great experience. Hopefully there will be many more small shows like this, rather than those big Albert Hall performances they keep doing!

Prodigal Son Sounds great, Honky Tonk. I only wish the Who would dig a little deeper in their set and pull out some great lesser-known gems such as "Out in the Street," "A Quick One," "Don't Look Away," "Mary Anne w/the Shakey Hand," "Tattoo," "Relax," "Call Me Lightning," bits of Tommy, "Young Man Blues," "Shakin' All Over," "Summertime Blues," "Love Ain't for Keepin," "Pure and Easy," "Too Much of Anything," "Time is Passing," "Relay," "Put the Money Down," "Water," "Naked Eye," "I Don't Even Know Myself," "The Real Me," "The Punk and the Godfather," "Dreaming from the Waist," "Imagine a Man," "However Much I Booze," "New Song," "Music Must Change," and "Had Enough." Yeah... those songs are just as good as some of the hits.

" DREAMS , CHILD , DREAMS ..............................




( A Review by The Joey : Dateline , March 21st , 2004 )

Just Because A Rock and Roll Ghost isn't a Demon like Mick Jagger or Iggy Pop doesn't mean that the Ghost is interesting . The MaxLugar is Proof of that ............

Maxy must be properly seen as , in fact IS , a Ghost living a Fantasy . With Past Postings , that fantasy invited links and parallels with wider issues : The Determination and Resilience it offered were publicly and personally worthwhile virtues . Now , Dear Reader , the fantasy has worn thin and downright giddy from being spun far , far too many times .

Indeed , it's an unreal world , a world that Max helped to create and a world he now perpetuates , needlessly . Its bounds and pressing concerns are superficial and repugnant . When one man and his fantasy can do no better than to produce a string of irrelevant personal postcards steeped in Hungover Hippy Talk , it is time for him to QUIT POSTING . Period !

The MaxLugar is a slave , not a creator . He is asking us to accept him as part of a story - a story that has no value and always ends in a cul - de - sac of Defeatist Manic Depression or Self - Consolation . This latest post of Maxy's is pure Amateur Spiritualism for Acid Casualties ! For Pete's sake Max , How much longer are we all going to have to endure your irrelevant fantasies ?

Developing .......................................

Shiver ...........................................

I Thank You All For Your Time Today !
