and a damn good one, too, obviously, who will be even better when they
cover "trimming one's posts" and "actually saying something" later in
the semester.

I trust/hope you saw the special treatment it got last summer with
Simon singing it.

No problem, I'm a big behind, myself.

I'm running a contest to see who can find the most errors in it.
AFAIK not only did Pete not have much (any) input into it but no one
else closely involved in The Who did, either.  Look at the list of
interviewees/sources in the back.  I only recognized two out of about
30 names, and one of those was a Hindu priest.  Prior to this,
Giuliano had written more than 20 books about various rock stars
(cf. www.amazon.com).  He seems to combine Steven King's volume with a
tabloid's accuracy.

In answer to an earlier query, Bruce Kawakami, historian deluxe,
informs me they did three takes of "A Quick One" at the Rock-n-Roll
