Ya know, The Who has always been underrated and depreciated in media and 
public, and that was always a mystery to me, considering its high musical 
quality and vanguardism... but, now, this is a gift, looking at Pete's 
problems and the fact that he is from now on a kind of suspect person, that 
one people will look at with suspicion and prejudice...
But to the dieharder whofreaks like us, Who is always Who, the only one rock 
and roll band in the world, no matters what the others are saying or 
listening or appreciating...
