Wont get fooled again

The Who has still has some gas left in the tank. I was mesmerized when I heard Roger Daltry shouting or growling at the end of the song. ROLLING STONES, DEEP PURPLE, THE WHO and Black Sabbath and many others will never fade away for years to come. These people do no care of there age but do care of there performance on stage or screen. Of course on I mean Clint Eastwood.90 years and still riding horse. Hopefully he can do a gun slinger movie. Now about THE WHO. Pete Townsend still blows away the roof. Hopefully in the upcoming tour 60th tour, Keith Richards play like Pete Townsend. But if Keith wants he can play, like he did with The Winos. But he just doesn't (sometimes does play) due to an unknown reason when he is with THE ROLLING STONES. Here is the link of Wont get fooled again 2022

This is a video of Baba O Riley. Also, not to take the wind out of your sails, but Roger's scream at the end of Won't Get Fooled Again is actually prerecorded. I didn't know that till I learned that here, but there is video where he's not near the mic and it happens. And also its the same every night and the only thing he NAILS. It was really sad when I learned, but I guess I've grown to understand. I do agree they still put on a really good show the two of them and I like that, beyond that, its really them up there. I saw a really ramshackle Won't Get Fooled Again a decade ago and loved it. It was so far from perfect but it was live and a mess and thats what I'd want to see. And yes, Pete is still a MONSTER on the guitar. No one can deny that.

7:46 It sounds like the album recording.

"Won't Get Fooled Again" and "My Wife" are two great songs by The Who. The "Who's Next" is a great classic album. One of the best albums ever.

As pftw04 pointed out, they and the Stones don't seem to care about age. I'm glad they are both still going!

The Who tech Brian Kehew blogs about catching Covid on the second show of the tour and subsequently missing a week. At the time of his blog entry (May 18) there were "three or four" crew members sidelined with it.

RollingFreak, you are quite right that Pete is still a monstrously good guitar player. The big power chords are as thick and cutting as ever, but his fingers dance jazzy motifs and flamenco flourishes at will.

Roger's voice is sounding great this tour. Really tempted to drive down to Seattle and see them one more time.

Mike Campbell & the Dirty Knobs are opening in Seattle. Last time I checked there were lots of tickets. I'm seeing Mike @ the new Crocodile Cafe on Tuesday (with Stan Lynch on drums!). Should be awesome.

I'm also thinking about going in for Seattle, I saw this tour when it was at T-Mobile Park in fall of '19 and it was great, would be fun to see it indoors too.

Roger is singing great in these shows, Pete's guitar playing seems a bit less fluent than usual, but maybe it's just shaking two years of rust off.

Nice, several other IORRers in the area. Treacle and I are both in the valley. Did you see The Who when they were last here back in late 2019? That was the last concert I saw pre covid. Decent show, Liam Gallagher opened.

Thanks for letting me know! Hopefully we get a Stones 60th show after that cancellation. I ended up going to Vegas and had a blast, but would love to have them here.

I did go to the last two Vancouver Who shows and saw them on the Endless Wire tour in Edmonton. I really enjoyed the 2017 and 2019 shows.

I was hoping the setlist would be a little more varied this year than the 2019 tour but am happy they are still touring and that Roger is in fine form.
