If by "better than ever" he means not hitting the high notes,
straining & struggling at times, crapping out after getting a
whiff of weed, & constantly catching colds & infections while
on tour....then, yeah, he's right.

Listen, I love me some Roger Daltrey, but his voice is no
where near what it used to be.  Hell, it wasn't in '79 & '82!
I admire his "positive thinking" approach but the facts prove
otherwise.  He's even admitted to using hypnotism as a way
to overcome stage fright.

Some days his voice is OK; other days it's pretty rough.
Whatever.  I can't play basketball like I could when I was
20.  (Go, Cavs!)

He needs to keep *Pete* going, is what he needs to do!
