It can be, but it wasn't kind to Pete. Fashion had a lot to do with it,
obviously. I know that was Pete's sober period, but he looks more strung
out there than ever, as someone mentioned here not too long ago. When I saw
them that year I was 16 and I really felt like they were OLD. Now I'm as
old as they were then, and they're ancient, but they seam much, much younger

I'm sure those songs *are* John. I'm talking about the band as a whole

The Who didn't do "showy" very well, anyway. At least not in the big
arena/stadium kind of way then were trying to do then and that the Rolling
Stones are masters of. No, their showiness was at a more personal, mic
swinging, arm twirling level. Could you imagine how silly it would look to
see a band smash their gear to pieces from the back of a 60,000 seat
