Re: Was Rabbit A Real Member of The Who?

More interesting, who's a Who these days?  Are TED actually Who's?  Or 
was all that over when they closed up shop in '82?  If they're 
negotiating over the LIFEHOUSE performance, that would suggest there's 
been a separate contract for everything they've done since.  

We need a copies of the contracts to see what they're calling it now. 
 Anybody got a catburglar lying around at home?
