Mehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

I... I mean... weeeh? When are scientists gonna figure out how to reanimate dead flesh so the Who can really start touring? Cuz I mean really... Pete has been kinder stiff... Oh, plus Zombie Ox would probably be rockin'. It would give new meaning to Rigor Mortis Sets In. Or some other awesome reference to his solo work.

I caught the VH1 Rock Honors show last night on tv honoring The Who and they were pretty good. Roger's voice isn't what it used to be but Pete and him both rocked out pretty good for being over 60! The show was pretty good with the Foo Fighters, Flaming Lips, Incubus and Pearl Jam singing The Who songs. I thought Pearl Jam did the best of the bands covering The Who songs although the last song the Foo's played with Gaz Coombes of "Supergrass" was great!

I saw on Yahoo news earlier that apparently Roger and Pete have fallen out! They've argued over what should/should not be played on the forthcoming US tour.

On the VH1 Rock Honors show last night on tv, Roger and Pete both said something about not getting along with each other and stuff like that. Roger said what was important was the music. You can go to this link and view the snipet they play between songs:

They've always had a volatile relationship. I should have written Roger and Pete have fallen out again! :)

i'm with you-kickass show. i almost cried to watch roger daltrey when he couldn't sing, but pete was a riffmachine, blasting out a premium performance.

incubus was really good too, they rest of the bands were all good, actually.

I was out of the country when tix went on sale for the DC show. It's just as well. $80.00 per ticket to sit in the nose bleed. There are premium packages for $505.00 per ticket, which includes a t-shirt, a seat within the first 10 rows and $50.00 to spend at the on-line store.

Not sure if this is a reliable source, but someone told me that Roger Daltrey keeps begging Pete to tour year after year because he needs the money to pay the bills on his castle :lol:
