Daltrey's vocals are not what they once were. That's one more reason I want
this tour and album to happen. I think it could be the last chance. We'll
just have to disagree about Mick's voice.

I'm hoping the contribution is a really special album in the near future.
At this point I'm not sure what to believe, though. I mean Pete and Roger
*both* said they'd be playing Tommy at the RAH, Roger just a month ago. At
this point I'd be surprised if the new album really is a concept album based
on The Boy Who Heard Music.

I just looked on their website and counted 53 songs played on their last
tour. That's a lot, but it ain't 200. I guess they just practiced 147 of
them for kicks.

Not good enough. You've got to actually suggest some replacements. I'll
give you 6 tracks from the new album, including the 2 we already know. I'll
also save you the trouble and assume you're picking Dreaming From The Waist.
Your mainstays are:
> Who Are You - Keep it. It's one of the mainstays.
> Baba O'Riley - Keep it. A mainstay.
> Won't Get Fooled Again - Keep it. A mainstay.
> Pinball Wizard - Keep it. A mainstay.
> See Me Feel Me / Listening To You - Keep it. A mainstay.
That's 12 songs, total. Plus, you want them to vary the set, right? I
won't expect you to come up with 53 songs for the tour. How about 18 more
to make a nice, round 30? Let's hear some suggestions.
