You're right Jim.  I'd buy the album and I WOULD go see that concert.

What, did I sound like Schradelhumbugsourpuss or something?

Let me explain what I was thinking.  The Who are not a commercial draw anymore.  As much as I'm sure I'd love a new Who album, it's not going to sell much.  For whatever reason, the Classic Rock industry can not get enough of anything Led Zeppelin.  The longer they don't play together, the more their legend grows.  So, anything with Jimmy Page will automatically draw more attention than anything by The Who.  Next, there's the cover album phenomenon.  Older acts have had much more luck selling albums of standards than new material.  Plus, that old blues music would be going back to both Roger & Jimmy's roots and would work well for Roger's voice.  On top of all that, the album could be made in no time, so it wouldn't interfere with anything The Who might do.  In fact, it could drum up some publicity for it. As far as recent Oscar winner T Bone goes, I think he'd be much more likely to get involved in a Page/Daltrey project than a Who one, with
 Pete's ego and all that goes along with it.  I'm telling you, the album I'm describing has the potential to be BIG.  Like Grammy awards big.
