Saw The Who at Rich Stadium, Buffalo, NY, in 1989 on their “farewell tour”. Great freakin’ show…much appreciated the stranger who kept passing his pipe full of opium to us till we told him “No more, please”.
Please open the pod bay door HAL.
Please open the outhouse door HAL.
HAL do you read me ? Do you read me HAL ?
Regarding that picture....why does Roger Daltry appear to be checking out his own equipment?
Who's Next motherfucker?
He's re-shelfing his package, like Moon and Entwistle.
I won't deny the pipe til I'm unconscious on the floor.....
I got evicted out of my first apartment instantly for playing Won't Get Fooled Again WAY too loud. Landlord said he received 23 different calls about it.
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgment of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song…
(Perfect description of the FBI infiltrating an anti-war group and talking them into committing a crime, whereupon the group is arrested and locked up. Happened to a neighbor of mine back in ’68 or so)
And the world looks just the same
And history ain't changed
'Cause the banners, they are flown in the next war…
(But we’ve always been at war with Eastasia… ) (1984)
Though I know that the hypnotized never lie…
(Good description of low-information voters, anyone?)
And the parting on the left
Is now a parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight
Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss…
(Boehner? Jeb Bush? Biden?)
Who’s Next had a major impact on my college years. I drove to Chicago (x3), Detroit, New York City (x2) & Washington DC to see The Who.
