 Hi Pat,
 You, any do not know me. I am and was a TRUE THE WHO NUT.
 I just bought my boxed set Maximim r & b, PLUS THE GOOD VIDEO.
 The old days, man... Reminds me of my past, plus present.
 I have never seen the who in concert, I would like to. I would fly in a

 Pete, all whobes,
 Pleaseeeeee send me any/all email about the who. I really want to rap

1973, when I had all their albums, and I quoted their LYRICS at work when 
things were getting weird......
