If that's the case, then REO Suckwagon and Jour-nay
and Kans-ass and Ferrener and Skin-nerd and
Styx-in-my-throat are ALL more important than The Who
right now! And 100 years from now, when they talk
about The Who it'll be about Tommy and Quad, not WN.

I would. Some of Ray's most painfully bad material:
"Motorway food is the worst in the world/You've never
eaten food like you've eaten on the motorway/Motorway
food is the worst in the world/The coffee tastes weak
and the cakes taste stale/And gasoline fumes are the
worst to inhale/Your stomach rolls over and your face
Yeesh! Almost as bad as Did You Steal My Money!
> Come on, I'm not talking about current top-10
Current or not, you ARE talking about those sort of
people if you evoke what's played on the radio!
Besides, how many Maroon 5 fans do you think even know
of The Who?

On a Who list? Yeah...I bet you are.

I disagree. I think Ray is certainly capable of
writing some incredible new material. In fact, their
last album Phobia wasn't bad. It just wasn't popular.
> Just in case there was any doubt; I knew that.
Oh, OK. Good.
