Re: Nine Year Old Who Fan

My 8 year old daughter thinks they are old aged hippies.
She's right, you know (from an American's point of view). :-)
I'd put it down to a gender factor rather than age difference. The
Who has always been known as a boy's/men's band, *especially* in the
Keith years but later as well. While I'm well aware and appreciative
of the female fans, the last I heard The Who's audience were 80% male
and looking around at the 2002 shows that seems about right.
"Mom they are soooooo gross" was her last remarks to me. Of course
she loves Aaron Carter...could there be a small generation gap here? :)
I don't know the first thing about Aaron Carter....but...does he
scream the lyrics, approach his shows as a matter of life and death,
frighten those in the first rows for their bodily safety, and write
epic songs about the eternal issues of existence and the struggle for
identity and self-actualization? Oh, and does he do it at 110
decibels? If he does, and your daughter's into THAT, then yeah, maybe
she really is disgusted by the same sentiments when expressed by old
farts. If not, I rest my case.
