Ummmm, no.
Also not sure how my bathroom and your bed would be in the same house, let alone part of the country.

>Sorry, one of us is married.......... ;)

Yep, happily married.
My wife kicks ass.
Don't let it be yours.

I was reading your post and thinking to myself "But Scott, Pete's real!  You don't want a 'clown' up there, do you?", and then you said it....."Pete is real".

I think the loss of Keith really rocked Pete, and the entire equation that was The Who.
For all the talk of Pete wanting control, he really wasn't comfortable with the burden of having to carry The Who all by himself.  I'm sure he felt a bit like Sisyphus (sp totally butchered, I'm sure).
Keith was such a visual and audio draw to the crowd.
With Keith gone, the spotlight was square on Pete.

Wow, that was fast.
Got to wonder if that was already in the works.
Or, where's there's a demand....
