This is kinda interesting. Pete and Simon Townshend appearing together on MTV in 1983. The music video for Simon's "I'm The Answer" is then played .... erroneously credited to Peter Townshend.

Been listening to a lot of his stuff lately. Really looking forward to seeing him on the 16th.

So no one's going to see Simon or has anything to say about him? I think his records are really good. A new one came out just a few days ago. Some of his songs are as good as anything on any of his brother's solo albums. He's also been far more prolific than Pete, who in the past 25 years has released only two albums of all new material. It's almost as if Simon's records are filling the void left by Pete's inactivity. Any thoughts?

I am what I am I just happen to be related to the king
I stand where I stand I just happen to be fated to be prince
And if you should know all that I've been told
Then you might as well be queen
I'll be what I'll be just happens I'm graciated royalty,
Me thinks my own things
But answers with undivided loyalty
And if you should hear all that I endear then you might as well be queen
For the artist bears his soul for the truth is hard to hold in reality
The oddest animal is a victim of his own immortality
His highness and his throne he never chose to know
Majesty, born in me, in me, in me
David, David Bowie sat me on his knee and said, "you happen to be, you happen to be related"
And Eddie, Eddie Vedder came into my house and said,
"You happen to be, happen to be fated"
Terrence Stamp, Chris's brother told me he was great and asked me to relay it
And Rod Stewart skidded across the Oval stage singing to me,
"Maggie must have made it, 'cause this boy is related
And if you should know all that I've been told then you might as well be queen
For the artist bears his soul as the
Truth is hard to hold in reality
For the oddest animal is a victim of his own immortality
His highness and his throne, he never chose to know
Majesty, born in me, in me, in me
His highness and his throne, yeah he's a victim of his own immortality
Majesty born in me, in me, in me

tatters, as a huge Who fan I must admit I don't know too much about Simon. I do like that song you posted, pretty darn heavy and some cool lyrics about being the unknown second son!
So he is playing at the Arc in AA right? I thought about going...

This is a good place to start. It's a compilation CD released in 2002.

I've been listening to it in my car the last few weeks and really enjoying it. I saw a name I recognized in the liner notes. Turns out I went to school 35 years ago with his tour manager! You should definitely come to the Ann Arbor show. It's only $20 and he does the whole meet and greet thing afterwards, autographs, photos, etc. It's historic, too. The Ark is just three blocks from the site of the old Fifth Dimension club, where on June 14, 1967 the Who played their first concert in the United States.

Saw Simon play with The Who in Louisville last year. Was really impressed with what he added to the show. Was out front in the mix, I could hear clearly what he was doing, but he also didn't intrude into what Roger and Pete were doing. Count me as a fan.

Only about 75 people turned out for the show in Ann Arbor last night, but one of them was our very own whitem8, who I've been interacting with on IORR for almost 10 years and finally got to meet in person for the first time.

There's a photo of me and Simon on Simon's facebook wall. You might have to scroll down a little bit, but I'm the big guy in the Who t-shirt.

Thanks so much tatters for recommending this show, it was fantastic! I was very impressed. Not knowing any of his material, other than him playing with The Who, he has the chops. Great guitar playing and some wonderful music.
Nice meeting you as well! Cool shot of you and Simon. Next show at the Arc will be Peter Wolf! Can't wait!

"Great show last night in the amazing town of Ann Arbor, MI. What a wonderful venue The Ark is, run by volunteers, it has a fantastic vibe and a fab sound system. Really enjoyed the evening, meeting the fans after and getting more Denial CDs and vinyl out there. I’m on the road now to Chicago for a sold out show tonight at the City Winery – a double header with Willy Porter (check him out online, he’s a great guitarist). Tomorrow I’m solo at CSPS Legion Arts, Cedar Rapaids IA. Hope to see some of you there."
