I don't consider a HOB a bar. Too big. I mean a BAR!

True, but the singles kept selling through the 60's.

If we're talking about opinions, then in the opinion
of the casual music listener WN is their best album.
Among most music critics, music professionals and hard
core Who fans, it's Quad (and Tommy).

Well, that's not true. Because they made one of their
two best that year (Muswell Hillbillies).

You stated it as not opinion but fact.

I do.

You want the chart numbers?

You don't have to. I've done it.

I don't agree at all. I think the vast majority of
serious music listeners don't listen to music radio.
They have a CD or at least cassette in theif vehicle
(probably with a killer system), and at home the same.

Again, I could do the same with The Kinks.

If so, then Britney is the Queen of music.

But The Who are clearly a lot better than the Beatles.

Oh, so now it's mankind we're talking about?

The first British wave was Beatles Stones Kinks Who,
along with bands like Yardbirds Animals Them etc.

The second, more heavy guitar-oriented wave was Cream,
Traffic, Hendrix etc.

You know...Rock group.

You said you felt, sure, but followed with "their
music isn't close." Their music IS close, that's what
I meant you were wrong about. Not about your opinion.

I never said that, did I? But no doubt some people do
feel that way, and could make the argument just as
strongly as we could about The Who.

But...just a minute ago it WAS! One way or the other,
please! This isn't "mix-and-match" day.
