Re: bad song becomes good song:

I was really looking forward to hearing him do it when TOMMY (the 
movie) came out.  Elton John had such a terrific voice back then, but 
I was disappointed--Roger was better.  

Somebody mentioned a while back that other musicians seem to have 
problems with The Who's material.  The effects aren't easily 
reproducable.  I have to admit, though, that Michael Kamen and the 
Juilliard Orchestra took a pretty good whack at it.
