How dare you criticize my mini-WHO BY NUMBERS set proposal!

What a horrible thing to say!  ;-)  That song came across really well
on Daltrey's DST tour.  I'd much rather hear that than LROM for the 
zillionth time.  IAM is very poignant & would fit well in their live
show at this stage in their careers.  I think Daltrey could pull it off.

Yeah, that song didn't translate very well on stage in the '70s.  I love
it, too, but I bet it's a sluggish difficult song to play live.  I'd like
to hear Zak give it a go.  If they played it in a slightly quicker, more
driving tempo, I think it might sound good live.  That'd be a nice one
to hear Daltrey sing.
