Possibly. Or would it just give the critics free reign to make all
the jokes they want?

Never let go the coats, Mark. ;-) (sorry)

TOMMY maybe, but where's your evidence that they had trouble making
QUAD & WHO'S NEXT? I'm talking about actually having difficulties
in the studio, recording the songs, molding them. Pete had difficulty
expressing his LIFEHOUSE *concept,* but apart from the aborted N.Y.
sessions, the recording of WN, by all accounts, went smoothly.
> When it's easy, you get FD. I'll take the conflict, myself.
Well, there's bound to be problems making a new studio album at this
stage in their career; especially considering Pete's newly realized
apprehension about creating Who/rock songs.
Again, it's down to Pete. If the songs are blatantly mediocre then
the studio struggle to breathe life into them will be glaringly ob-
On the flip side, if the songs are kick-ass, ideally they'll be easier
& more enjoyable to record. The band will be pumped, etc.
But trying to put a nice gloss on a batch of so-so songs.....well.....

That's plural. Are we cloning? And "The TD's" sounds better. Say
it fast. ;-)

*I* use the word "goofy!" Who uses the term "Twenty Hundreds?"

Not on that Essen '81 video. He's flying. Powerful & insistent.

C'mon. You know Moon could drag on occasion.

What? Five songs from two albums? "*Some* good songs" also translates
into "*many* crappy songs."

Commentary? I'm talking about the physical act of searching for &
sorting through any archived tapes. Daltrey ain't gonna waste his time
doing that! Neither is Pete. That's what they *pay* people for.

What "agenda" does Jon Astley have when it comes to old Who material?

Apologies, Your Highness. ;-)

And "The Quiet One."
