For the record, it was me, not Mike that made what you think is a snotty
I think, (no, I know) you are being a bit sensitive for nothing. It was a
light hearted comment about the fact that they, as many of us, have aged
since they were in their prime. Frankly, I was flipping channels and saw
them performing and was not sure who they were at first. Kind of knew them,
but was trying to place the older faces with the younger performance.
The years are not very kind to the hard and fast living rock musicians.
Okay, I am perhaps a bit sensitive on the subject due to my rapidly
advancing age. I see a lot of similar comments online from people who sneer
at [insert name of 60s legends] without having actually been at the show in
question, it gets up my nose a bit. Not all Who shows are outstanding (and
frankly this one wasn't) but not much more than a year ago I saw them tear
down the building at one show in particular. They really don't need to
pretend they can still do it, they actually can.
I'd love to be in Roger Daltrey's condition when I'm 65--hell, I'd like to
be that fit now, the bastard's stomach is flat as a Starrett ruler.
Townshend has aged fairly well too since he gave up drugs and booze in time.
Many others -- the ones still alive -- are in bad shape. A lifetime of
booze and hard drugs and no sleep apparently catches up with one....
I enjoyed it. I wasn't sure how'd they do. Did better then I expected. Did
remind me how old I was, but Face Book does that everyday when I see an
old buddy and your image of them is from 30 years ago. You say to yourself
I don't remember him/her looking like that. Damn they didn't age well. But
they're probably saying the same thing about me!
You can lead them to LINUX
but you can't make them THINK !
