Ummm, sounds like TigerPurr was there for their "true popularity peak", yet she's going with the time around '82.

I'd like to see some stats on album sales and concert attendance.

Another thing struck me last evening that has me further supporting the '82 era as a peak in popularity...
Pete's solo career was off the ground.
This added to public awareness of The Who, and of Pete.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but Pete never really enjoyed much solo success until Empty Glass, right?

Whole lot of people out there with their hands over their ears.
Still waiting for just *one* person here (other than you) to state that The Who gets less airplay than the Kinks.





Listen to the souuuuuuund....of silence.

It happens with age.
