How could I argue with you, Pete? If you, rock-legend alive, are saying 
that, of course it's true...
Now serious, despite believing Mark is being too much pure and high-pitched 
in his tentative to preserve all the glorious of a myth, I somehow agree 
with him that it would be the case of Pete has remained solo. Pete on his 
own is great, is jazzy, somehow cool as The Who ain't. Fuck eventual 
commercial flops of some albums, 'cause in tour Pete is always all right, 
with his loyal public.
