This is basic to the album's success and the reason for the rave live
reviews. -And why they should still be called The Who!
>>The restrictions that are always there when there was the three
of you break down when there's two - or you perceive that it does.
Two's company, three's a crowd."
I know this is a quip, but he better look for a letter from Queenie.
>>But what do
I know? You forget, I've never seen The Who live."
Aha! The monitors must put out more bass than the PA.
>> If you do the eclectic stuff, half the audience would
go home unhappy. Then if you do all the hits, you get the moaners.
You cannot please everybody."
He's got that figured out about right.
>>He just articulates a
human feeling that most other blokes have felt as well." (Notice Rog
said 'human' & not 'spiritual!' - Schrade)
Roger's purpose in life and enjoyment seems to concern the band itself and
he's more of a pragmatist. On WBN, Pete did mainly focus on human feelings,
but he was on the way down. He was affected by the excesses of his life. We
are all humans and humans have feelings. If we didn't have human feelings and
the ability to express them, we would truly be mere animals or robots of
The thing I admire most about Pete is that no matter if he is up or down, he
doesn't lose sight of the fact that there is something more. He's deeply
honest. Pete sees more than Roger does. Roger can identify that Pete has a
gift and is honest about that. But Roger may not realize that he himself has
the same capacity if he weren't so limited by his love of the band. There is
so much more to see if we would open to see it.
When Roger couldn't articulate his feelings, he would start punching people.
Many take this route verbally because of a narrow view.
That being said, surely Pete has a particular function that Roger doesn't
have. People are different. But Roger has inner eyes too that he may not know
of. I think that people tend to confuse intelligence with spiritual sight.
Some folks are just more intelligent than others. People give credit to Pete
for his genius. But spirituality is not governed by intelligence.
Intelligence is "harnessed" by spirituality to express what is seen once spirituality is
tapped. To do this, one must turn from their mind to their spirit. If you
don't open to do this, it won't happen. A person will remain an objective
thinker that knows objective facts.
I can testify that my human spirit works. It can sense the difference
between a smart guy talking and a spiritual person touching spiritual things.
Pete spoke of the "Note." The Universal chord. What a discovery! Roger
agreed and stated that "If we ever do find out what the meaning of human life is,
it'll be a "note."' He didn't come up with it, but he at least agreed with
what Pete saw.
God put into every human being on earth an organ called our spirit. This is
a fact. It is a part reserved just for Him like a beach-head in our being.
Before finding this out, I was limited to my own opinions and blew around like a
boat with no rudder and considered that to be freedom.
Just like we have eyes to see the physical realm, we have a spirit to see
the spiritual realm. It has God consciousness. It can sense God.
God is food. Every single person on earth whether they are rich or poor, low
class, middle or upper class, intelligent or not needs food. It is basic.
You don't need to be smart enough to eat. That is good news! What an
equalizer! If one eats, they will live. I'd rather be living than dying. I can sense
that from Pete.
Thanks for putting this up, Scott. Great job. Roger gave us a lot of answers
to the questions we've been asking.
