Re- Who's a Who

Hi All, Beau's question about who we can call a Who member does raise
a few issues. As far as I'm concerned The Who ended with the death of
Keith. This will probably raise a few more but what if's but this is
MHO. What followed was TED with Kenney Jones and Rabbit and as we all 
know did not really last too long. Now mind you, TED on their own or
with almost anyone is a very mighty force in Rock n' roll and is hard
to beat. In whatever fashion or size, TED with or without the rest 
are still the best. This I am convinced of. The years and years of
experience,the hundreds and hundreds of shows and the profesionalism
and confidence of TED is unequalled. If you really were to list the
number of people that have played live with TED since 1979 onwards it
would begin to look a little silly. After all Pete said on more than
one occasion and it's on video: "WE have the unmitted gall to call
it or this The Who " !(25th anniversary tour finale in california)
I never saw Daltrey oe Entwistle object to that statement or say
anything afterwards. As for Bob Pridden, well., no. Bob is probably
the longest serving Who associate/Roadie/Sound Man etc... However, I
fail to see any main reason why He should be included as a member of
The Who.He has been a major player over the years,yes that's true,
but that does'nt qualify Him as a band member.Bob's contribution to
The Who should not go unrecognised perhaps,but what exactly did you
have in mind Beau ? I  await the probable barrage of  those in
disagreement. ! Regards,
