Exactly.  I really shouldn't be so confused by these "half Who fans."
After all, I'm half a U2 fan; I don't care for any U2 after JOSHUA

Still, these "half Who fans" frustrate me because when I started getting
into the band it was all-inclusive.  I was just as excited by the '60s-era
stuff as I was by the '70s & '80s incarnations.  

But there are tons of those "half Who fans" out there, let me tell ya'.
And they really love the "early Who," but they vehemently despise the 
"later Who."

Too bad.
