I wish they’d died before they got old

7 02 2010

No, I really do not wish they had died, at least not literally.  But I do wish The Who had bowed out gracefully after the death of John Entwistle.  The Who was never really The Who after Keith Moon’s death, but Peter, Roger and John, with a succession of replacement drummers, managed to maintain some semblance of Who-ness.  Now, the once most powerful four piece band on earth cannot make music without a bloated backing group.

I personally don’t see the point in going to see them live.   They really are a shell of their former selves.  There’s no more heart, no more energy.  Here’s a bit of the Super Bowl performance.  Decide for yourself.
