Uh.....yeah.  I posted it like two weeks ago.  Remember?  Same post which
had Pete's quotes on the Kinks & Ray Davies - which you commented on.
Here 'tis again:

Pete on Entwistle's comment that TOMMY turned The Who into "snob rock:"

"I think John was in the wrong band.  John wanted to be in, 
I dunno, Whitesnake.  Really.  But he loved me & he loved my 
writing & he loved playing the music but I think he wanted 
there to be lines of coke in the dressing room & groupies on 
the end of his knob all the time.  And when he was left to his 
own devices, that's what he did & that's how he died."
