Whoa!  Pete was right there in the thick of things!  Partying it up with the rest
of them.  By all accounts, he & Moonie were the worst offenders.  If any-
thing, Pete should've been influenced by the proper behavior of Daltrey! 
(Proper, in this case, being simply taking a "bird" back to your hotel room,
banging her in private, & falling asleep.)  Daltrey's the spiritual leader, not Pete!

I doubt it.  He keeps remarking how "easy" it is to play live these days, &
how f-ing great he is at it.  Playing live isn't any kind of a challenge for him 
these days which would make him want to examine what he's doing & giving 
it much thought.
