I was agreeing with someone else, who said something
like that. I notice you didn't take issue with him. Or
the people who whined about political discussions
revolving around Pete with one hand yet posted the
"OhboyI'mgoing" with the other hand.
Be evenhanded, how about it?

Don't be so sensitive. I was using the same subject
Tom did to reply to what Tom wrote.

Who's got ire? Not me. Just mentioning.

Acutually it'd be more like the other way around. If I
was to tell them anything. But each to his own sewage.

Perhaps they should think about that before they start
complaining in the first place. Seems like I'm last in
line, and the one who's getting all the grief.

Each to his own sewage.

I've been to actual WHO shows, and yeah they're great.
I'll catch Velvet Revolver when they come around here,
and Jane's Addiction next time they reform and tour.
Meeting the other Whofans is great, but at this point
the only reason to go to a "Who Revue" show. Even the
Encore series, it seems, show why NOT to attend the

But not the same things, which means my statement
wasn't contradictory, as you said.

> You don't want a new album.

I never said that. With the absence of Pete solo
albums, I'll be happy to listen to a new group album.
It's a pity it'll be called a Who album, when it's

Sometimes it's better to end on a high note. Hey,
didn't Townshend himself say that about The Who once a
long time ago in a galaxy far, far away?

How am I "stopping" them, exactly? And, to be quite
blunt about it, some of these very same people ARE
stopping any Who-related political discussion by
complaing to Paul or threatening to leave. Paul can
verify, if he wishes, that I haven't complained about
ANYONE on this list EVER.
So, shit, I was just agreeing with Tom. Now it's an
"issue." This isn't freedom, this is "Bush freedom."

Good thing I didn't wait to get the deluxe package. I
had a feeling.
