Last night a number of artists payed tribute to the music of The Who at New 
York's Carnegie Hall. The show was an overwelming success.

Punk rocker Patti Smith, before kicking into the Who classic My 
Generation, said to the crowd, “O Carnegie Hall, forgive me for what I am about to do.”

Rockers Living Colour performed a funked up version Eminence Front from the 
Who's 1982 album, It's Hard.
