I'm one of those fans that feels like many of Pete's songs could have
been great Who songs and vice versa. For example; Rough Boys...Who and
Love Ain't For Keeping..Pete. IMO, RGLB has lots of energy. It starts
out with angry energy and ends with joyous energy. The only part of the
song I feel should have been different is the part where Roger
sings...wise men say only fools rush in...but I can't help falling in
love, in love with you. I think that Pete should have sang that part.
I love the song. Have you tried turning the volume up and listening to
it a few times?
