> To the general public, The Who is more Roger than anyone else.

Hmmm....that's debatable.  I think it's half Pete, half Rog.  Most people
know Pete's the songwriter/guitarist & Rog is the singer.  In fact, maybe
it leans more toward 60% Pete, 40% Rog.  I think if you asked people
who the "leader" of The Who is, most would say Pete.

Plus, it's their *jobs.*  Their livelihood.  As harsh as it sounds, I think we
sometimes lose sight of that.
