Working musicians only make money by working unless as Alan says they are on 
retainer.  What would you do if your boss said we don't need you for a 
couple of years (The band haven't done shows since last Aug) and we're not 
going to pay you during that time?

I said it in the mid 80s, 90s, 00s, and now, there will never be a new Who 
studio CD (I said album in the 80s).  I will admit to being a little nervous 
when they recorded the two new songs last year, but old habits are hard to 
break. :)  Any new studio recordings lie at the doorstep of PT always has 
always will.  I'd much rather get that Anthology DVD set of the real Who 
than a new CD of Who's left.
