That's the one we know of.  Are you implying that Pete's lying when he 
says he's written other songs?

Recording-wise, nothing *has* happened since then.  That doesn't mean
Pete isn't privately working on song demos, with the thought of a possible
new album in mind.

Daltrey?  I don't recall that.

I know.  They both link to Pete's interview.  Unless it's been corrected.

I was under the impression that they only had the two songs recorded &
nothing else.  And I though the rumor about *other* songs entering the
recording phase was started when Eddie Vedder said he had heard about
five new Who songs.  Isn't that when everyone began speculating that
they had completed some more studio work on *other* songs?

They probably had to meet Geffen's release deadline for THEN & NOW.

I thought RGLB & ORW sounded fine.  They weren't cheaply recorded, IMO.
Pete's probably more worried about the band's *performance* sound as
opposed to the recording sound.  Maybe he thought they didn't have 
enough time to get a well-rehearsed, top-notch take of RGLB & ORW.
