Brian found this:

> Roger did a phone interview on BBC Radio 5 this morning:


Amusingly, this Media Player has a volume control which goes up to 11.  So its louder than normal Media Players.

Some quotes from Roger:

	"We  don't play stadiums anymore .  We played stadiums for a year and hated it ... we pioneered stadiums...  It became less and less about the music and more about being a circus act."

	"Music is age-less".  Doesn't like to b referred to as a "heritage act" - "heritage implies that you're 'gone'."
	"The Who wouldn't have made it past the audience stage of X Factor.  Nor would the Sex Pistols."

Good!  I wouldn't want them to!  None of the groups / artists that I'm a fan of would have been any good on any these X Factor / Pop Idol shows.  That's why I like them.
