Recent Conversations with Nick C, #2

It is all Kit Lambert's fault.

The Who were a perfectly excellent little singles group with a sense of humor that produced numerous scorching teen anthems one after the other, ...

But then Lambert, whose Da was a composer, started whispering in Townshend's ear, that Pete should start taking himself more seriously, forget the singles, and start writing Rock Operas.

What a load of bollocks!

Tommy is where I draw the line.  Before Tommy The Who were up there with the other Rock Titans.  After Tommy, with the exception of just a few tracks, they are annoying, pretentious twats.

Lifehouse? Puh-leeze, ...

Think of what could of been if Entwistle and Moon had left The Who and joined up with "Legs" Larry Smith, Neil Innes, and Viv Stanshall in The Bonzo Dog Band? That would have been the greatest rock band in history.

Plus, if that did happen, we might have seen this headline:

London, UK

Pop singer of The Who, Roger Daltrey, was found murdered in his Camden flat yesterday morning, a guitar embedded in to his head.  Guitarist, Pete Townshend, is missing.


Moon the Loon.
