Re: WHO To Play TOMMY at RAH - Plus "Guests"

From: "John Hughes" <pureneasy@xxxxxxxxx>

Considering they didn't even play a John Entwistle song just once, by way of
a tribute to John on the 2002 tour, I won't be surprised if they "edit"
Tommy by these songs, though to be fair it would emasculate the set if they
didn't play Cousin Kevin.

Although, given the subject matter, okay, they'll probably "edit" these JAE
songs out of the set.

I feel like betting somebody a buck that they'll keep them in. It would be too grotesque to leave out either Fiddle About or Cousin Kevin. The artistic integrity of the story itself would suffer. I'd be ashamed of them if they cut the songs out due to the child-abuse political angle, and I can't believe they'd be so petty as to cut out John songs just because he's dead.
