Wow, He really does an awsome job on this one.
Best singer I´ve heard do this apart from Jagger.

Excuse me, but I think that was very tame. Daltrey does his usual mic throwing exercise, does not sing particularly good, the band is totally stiff with a bewildered sax player and the arrangement is horrible.

Come on, let's not condemn this experiment. First of all I think the purpose of this show was to combine rock music with a symphonic orchestra and the fact that they chose to play Street Fighting Man at the occasion can be seen as paying tribute to one of the greatest rock songs ever written.
Second I think I have seen far worse efforts by many many many other people to try to cover a Stones song. I think Roger and Zak are doing rather a fine job. It's that guitar player that does not understand what he's supposed to do, so he decides to play one ugly mess where there ought to be chords.

The British Rock Symphony tour in 1998 featured the music of the Who, the Stones, the Beatles, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin. Though advertised as a Roger Daltrey solo concert, he turned out to be only a "featured performer" who sang about 10 songs, mostly Who stuff. Most of the music by the other groups was performed by other, lesser known, singers. Highlight was Stairway and Kashmir, particularly since those two songs were NOT performed during the 1998 Page and Plant tour which was going on at the same time.

Sorry, but this is one of the most embarassing moments I've ever seen in rock history.

I don't think it wasn't that bad, he didn't try to copy the song he just put a lot of The Who sound in it .. wasn't it that Tommy was a nice guy the song fits excactly in the opera.

Seems like Daltrey has become one of the must-not-be-critized-ones.
Sorry if I offended people above; still gotta say this dude
is The most overrated vocalist in Human history. :OP

First of all I'm not a Who fan Bro (i did like Tommy and the old stuff) but I admire his voice ........ still strong for his age .. and it sounds the same as the early 7ties

Ok, Roger does the best he can with the band he was stuck with. GOD! That sax solo is terrible! And those quitarists are horrible as well. Only Roger and Zak Starkey redeem themselves...

yeh! obviously not the best cover version and band for this etc...i agree Zak is right on it...

but i like that The Who have always been vocal Stones fans, to this day; I recall Pete's affectionate induction speech to the hof...
...and remember with much fondness that EP of 4 Stones covers they put out in solidarity with the boyz when they were taking all those busts and could very well have ended up in jail, which would have killed a lot of their sixties output, maybe killed the band altogether...
THOSE were good Stones covers, and really specially good Who record.
And it was done quickly and independently and it took great heart balz to pull that off, especially at that time.

An EP of four Stones covers? I thought they only did a single; Under My Thumb b/w The Last Time.

you're very most probably correct tatters, ty. i'm going on memory (bad memory apparently); and at that time, i had an import of it bought in nyc, which didn't physically look like an american 'single' 45 single...and it didn't look like any official release exactly either; anyway, my bad; i only had a couple of EP's amidst my singles (still have an elvis one) but i must be mistaken so thnx for correction.
i was searching the web a bit to see if it had been released with other stuff as an ep anywhere and couldn't find anything...but a nice mention of that Single with the last time and under my thumb in this guy's piece about Stones covers. some interesting choices.
sorry for the confusion.
