The Who:"Real Good Looking Boy"

Pete and Roger got together to do a charity show in New York City a few years ago and Roger performs this song solo. He really puts everything into it, which he has always done. Pete Townshend said this was the moment that he believed they could do another studio album together, which produced Endless Wire. That album was released in October 2006 and stands as one of my top couple of favorite Who CDs. The two were asked recently what their plans were and Pete said nothing is definite. However, Roger stated in an interview a week later that Pete is working on some new stuff for another Who album. There also is word that they may do an Unplugged which would be awesome. The above song is one of the reasons why I think so. I got to see them do some songs acoustically at their Quadrophenia concerts 10 years ago. Songs like "Won't Get Fooled Again," "Behind Blue Eyes," and "Drowned" were really, really good in that format.

Pete Townshend said that when he, Roger and John Entwistle first met, Roger Daltrey was the best guitarist of the three. He certainly shows himself here to be quite formidable. Some folks may think they should not do another album and should go off into the sunset. Maybe those people should go jump into the sun. Thanks very much!
