One meets these type of Who "fans" - people who like The Who
*up until* TOMMY. Keets would call them Pre-Modernists,
or some other such nonsense. ;-o (Paleo-who-ic?)
I've met several of this sort. It's sometimes difficult to talk to
You start conversing about The Who & they say they really don't
listen to any post-TOMMY Who. They carry on about "Substi-
tute," "Boris The Spider," & SELL OUT.
It's like finding half a Who-freak to talk to. You can't mention
anything post-TOMMY. Sometimes, you can't mention TOMMY.
I stand there talking to "these people" but in my mind I'm scream-
ing, "QRADROPHENIA!" "Love Ain't For Keeping!" "Success
Story!" "Sister Fucking Disco!"
How do you convert half a Who fan over to the other half?
