We need songs that illustrate the power and versatility of the old Who, 
while highlighting the strengths
of the current band.  That includes Simon on both backing vocals and 
guitar, and Rabbit on piano
and organ.

My big concern with Tommy is that they will be tempted to bring a whole 
of backing vocals and horn arrangements on stage - just watch 'em 
(insert Jody Linscott comment here.)
Will they bring out any *special guests*?   I don't think so.   For the 
concert for New York, they
slipped into their comfort zone, and while it had a huge impact, us 
hardcore fans watched a re-run.

So, how about Long Live Rock.   That's got both Roger and Pete on 
vocals, piano and a rocking
chorus that everyone can sing along with.
