|THE WHOPage 1 of 1 |
|I saw the who's next tour with keith moon. Its funny, that many of their early hits, would make you think they were a wimpy pop band, not a violent explosive live act. Plus one on live at leeds, that and their performance at woodstock made me want to play guitar, big time.|

|I kind of like old Who more than the newer Who. Mainly, when they were mods, but don't get me wrong, without Tommy, they would have broken up after the who sold out. (Because they were a bit more punk before that was a style of music the public was ready for. They did experiment in psychedelic rock before moving onto more concept rock albums, but I think they all lost the passion they once had in the 70's. I don't know why they kept going after Moon died, because it just wasn't the same anymore. |
My favorite album is "Who sellout", because they try all sorts of material in it, but most of the songs are masterpieces. (I don't care for Rael for some reason, a bit too long maybe).

|I've yet to hear a better live album by any band than "Live At Leeds". Admittedly biased as I was actually there for that one. They returned about a year later and opened with the imortal words "We've come to pay our royalties"!|
After Keith Moon's demise they seemed very "run of the mill" live wise. I'm afraid I didn't rate Kenny Jones at all as a drummer.
Then I saw them at Sheffield with Zak Starkey and they were on fire! Granted, Starkey is not Keith Moon but he did inject a lot more life into the sound with his "Moonesque" fills and Thunderfingers Entwhistle was awesome. It seemed apt to read that Keith Moon actually gave Zak his famous white drum kit.
