Motivations and enough

>>Sail. Fade away.
>I was talking about Roger, not Pete.
Whooops. Ok, then...ummmm....ummmmm.....hope/pray for more acting jobs?
>Who cares what the motivation is?
Well, I do. I'd rather have a Pete motivated by passion than by greed. Greed, as we can see in various institutions, brings only shoddy results to the whole.
>I mean, let's face it: Roger is a performer, not an artist (Pete is both). So he's not agonizing >over the fact he cannot practice his Art. He wants to be a Rock Star. Hey, so do I!
Roger definitely needs this more than Pete.
Kind of cool that Pete seems to be doing this for Roger.
>Zep was in STEEP decline and IMHO Plant just wanted a graceful way out.
There ya go again. Stealing my thoughts!
>>The *only* way it would work is if they call the album "Who's Left".

<GASP!> It would be kind of cool, wouldn't it?
>>You mean Udder, right?
>Why, because it's "cowboy diplomacy?"
Hey, "cowboy" is a dirty word to any self respecting Redskins fan like myself!!!
>>Hey, I'm living in VT!
>We all have our burdens to bear.
Knowing your love for the mountains, I know you can't possibly think that living in VT is a burden to bear. Moving here was the best decision my wife and I ever made (well, except for getting married ;-). I actually like cows. They're cool, and quite interested and curious creatures. No one ever takes the time to hang with them a bit though to find out.
>I'm in South Carolina...top that one, if you can!
No thanks. I know an impossible task when I see one.

I think you're right, but I do hope he has some self motivations.
>Man, just think for a minute what their relationship has evolved into.
I've been thinking about the irony of this for a while now.
The irony is thick.

>Absolutely great! The whole story in a nutshell!
Cousin Scott was gettin' deep, wasn't he?
But man, hit the nail right on the head....and hard.
>TheWho-. have give me more......more than a little...and a little is enough!
>Enough......I am content!
I echo the sentiment.
But, there's also the selfish side of me that wants more. That side is wrestling with the logical and practical side that is scared of a Who bashing if/when a new release ever comes to fruition.
Round and round we go!!!!
