Right.  As I said, it's nothing new.  I think it was the way he implicated
Roger as supporting the fans in this that caught my eye.<<

I'm not sure of specific interviews or remarks attributed to Pete, but 
really, that he lumps Roger in with "the rest of us" didn't really surprise me. 

To wit, The Who that reformed in 1979 was really a compromise between the Who 
that Pete wanted (more onstage instrumentation, keyboards, a second guitar 
player) and what Roger wanted (the classic guitar-bass-drums-vox Who thrashing 
it about).  So I've always seen Roger as a least a bit of a bastion of the "old 
Who" thing.
