Yep.  Thus the terms Who2, Who's Left, etc.  Plus this: "There are  
many Who fans who have just as good a time watching one of the many  
fantastic Who tribute bands as watching Roger and Pete (and their  
supporting musicians) pretend to be who we used to be.” It's true,  
I've heard some of them (fans) say so.
