There's a saying in the country of my parents that states "who plays with 
fire get hurt". I think Pete fiddle a little with a thing much greater than 
his ability to deal with. He became a channel to messages from beyond that 
are calling people to wake, to grow and assume the responsibilities for the 
good of the world. He was thinking in the beginning that was only a bunch of 
good ideas to produce a rock-piece. But the unexpected success of Tommy 
astonished to everyone, including Pete himself. After trying to surpass 
Tommy with Lifehouse (unfortunately it was beyond his time) -- another bunch 
of good ideas mixing Sufi concept of vibration as the source of reality with 
science fiction of a over-polluted world and a alienated and controlled 
people that wasn't dug by anyone -- Pete dived in alcohol, drugs and the 
selfish life of a rock-star. Poor little boy.... but the door 
(spiritual/magical) was opened already, and that was what matters to the 
collective conscious.
