"THE WHO: LIVE IN BOSTON" (2002)Despite bassist John
Entwistle's untimely death as the Who's 2002 tour was
about to launch, the show does go on in this DVD
recording a September performance at the Tweeter
Center. Casual fans should find that Pete Townshend
and Roger Daltrey look and sound better than do, say,
the Rolling Stones as they trot out the old act one
more time. Still, there's an obvious sadness to
watching them carry on as a duo, and the "Boston"
location might as well be anywhere for the lack of
visual style delivered by this fundamentally executed
disc. For post-heyday Who that's more rousing, we'd
recommend hunting online for a VHS copy of the 1982
"The Who Rocks America."
