Just turned a mate onto Who's Next.

He said, and I quote, that it was so good "I creamed".

It's such a kick ass record.

Sadly, Limp Bizkit's downright atrocious version of BBE will always linger in the background...

The Who.....

what can I say about The Who.........
Quite alot!!!

The Who is one of the very few bands that I & my sis (in NYC) did NOT discover ourselfs.
ur NJ SUburban cousin showed us Happy Jack (? A Quicck One -in Britian) in?1966-67 ish.

We were very impressed, proceeded to get Sell Out & My Generation (on Vinyl :giggle)

Basicslly we followed The Who up the Ladder of Fame/Super Fame from then on.

I saw them 3 times in 1968......
...the first show while they still wore the Poip fashion type stuff you saw in the Montery Pop Fesival film.
2nd time they opened for The Doors!!! Morrison got drunk that night and walked stage...chairs WERE thrown...I got out unscathed (I had gotten down from upper seats to about 5 rows from the stage.

3rd time they played at the RENOUNED Central Park's Schaffer Music Festival ? about 500 - 1000+ seats?
I was in the 5th row and able to go up to the front and get a few snapsshots. I still ahve then somewhere. I did see them in the past years while reorganizing stuff.

Schaefer fest??? :eybrow: you say...

well it was a summer thing that turned back into The Wollman Skating Rink durung the cold months. it went onfor about ? 10 plus years before...........

...... they decided the Rink needed big fixing so the SMF moved to the Hudson River waterfront a pier right by wheere the Circle Line Boats took off from.......and where The Intrepid Aircraft Carrier who eventual dock as a Museum . That lasted several years (saw Big Country there).

yeah, and..........
Well a l'il ole Band who had def reverece for The Who as Musicians & Performers (reaD IN A PRE-USA TOUR INTERVIEW)


..........played there in 1983. One of there first bigger gigs past the med size clubs in NYC.......





......could it be.....



...and it was........ U2!!!

In fact... U2's postivite take on The Who was one of the things that taagged them for me as a band to look out for (in the Fall of 1980! ).


of course there was Tommy..
OMG!
I saw them play Tommy at the Filmore East 1969 with the Joushua Light Show!! Incredible!!!
I still have the commentary I wrote about when I got home!

i did prefer that performance to the Opera House one a year later.

Then came (after Live at Leeds which certainly introduced the Power of the Who Live to people who hadn't seen them or hadn't yet been impressed by them)

Who's Next!

I could hardly beleive my ears at how manificant, lyrical And Rocking out that record was....even if as it would happen for the most part their Live renditions of it were "on fire!!!"

I saw them 2x's for that Forest Hills Tennis Stadium!

The 2nd show ? 7/31/71 IS one of the greatist LIVE shows ever played!!!
they did a ? 20 jam with My Genration and instruemntal stuff in there was was......incomperarable!!!

Quadrophrania!
A great album.one I've reggotten into the past year or so. I suddenly found myself hummins/singing low while the subway train was moving (making noise ) singing songs from Quad!

I gotta leave here so maybe I'll throw some more stuff out fri.

onre last memory.........

My mom
......asked me during U2's HutDub Tour as i was telling her about the shows a bit..........since she supported our R&R mania > keep 50-$ back in the day when that got you 4 -5 tixs ready for us for mail orders or standing on line duties!

"......U2......ARE they AS good as Bruce & The Who?"

I said Yeah, Mom, they really are!
