The members of The Who, famed for works including the rock opera "Tommy," got a hard-driving serenade by some top rockers or more recent vintage. 

Foo Fighters front-man Dave Grohl belted out "Who Are You" and Matchbox Twenty lead singer Robert Thomas sang "Baba O'Riley" as the backdrop of the stage lifted to reveal a choir of New York firefighters and police. 

Townshend was visibly moved as he watched the uniformed choir whoop it up in appreciation for his and Daltrey's concert in New York shortlyafter the September 11 attacks.
