Remember Roger running in place during the 82' tour ala the I'm Free portion of the movie Tommy-?

Thanks for the kind words, Jon.      I should have hung in and watched
the rest, but the Stones were wearing me down at the time.

Another few thoughts occurred to me.    You'll never see a large
ring of a stage where Roger runs around so he can relate directly
to the audience, like U2 or the Stones do.     Granted, I don't
want The Who to be running around on an audience-surrounding stage,
I'd rather have them performing music.
