Great video!

But yeah, stick me in the "No, thanks" camp. I can see what all the fuss is about, and I respect them all tremendously as musicians, but I don't like the music. Quite like Cannibal Corpse :)

Thanks for the video, though! Always great to see a band doing what they do.

I think the overall sound is much better. John stands out in the mix like he should lol

Oh if you like that get 'The Kids are Alright' DVD. Most watched DVD in my collection.

If everyone in the world or on basschat had the same taste the world would be a boring place.

So if you dont think the Who were the greatest (in their prime), dont think the Ox was the greatest, its not your fault. You will get over it and learn to live with it. Someone has to be in the minority - thats life.

And if kids want to show off their limited ability with a Who tune - you cant knock their taste in music (well I cant anyway).

Oh I'm not saying everyone should like it.
It's also contextual. Modern yoof has so many bands to watch and emulate and learn from. The Who were a giant leap for mankind and that is simetimes forgotten.

I must admit until I was about 25 I didn't take much notice of The Who but I became a big fan of the Moon Period, as Pete T says they where the engine of R & R in the '70's I can only imagine what the teens of the '60's thought about them when they let rip with all that aggression and full tilt Marshall stacks, 'The first Punks' yea I would say so! awesome band then but I would not pay to watch them now.

With an Epic and a rick turner, you'd be made very welcome on the alembic forum.

(puts tin hat on)

I personally think the Who were overated....don't get me wrong...I love the singles...."Won't get fooled again", "Who are you?" , "My Generation", "I can see for miles" are all amazing tracks. It's just that beyond the singles I can't find much to float my boat i'm afraid.

Still they were still better than The Beatles (ducks for cover)

This could be construed as a suicide attempt so you'd better steer clear of the cops for a while.

I love The Who. That performance of WGFA is (in my opinion) one of the greatest rock songs performed by one of the greatest bands ever. And the bass playing is just phenomenal!

Of course everyone is entitled to their opinions, I know there are a hell of a lot of Who fans on here who'd agree with my 2 cents!

Agreed. As I said earlier, dont start me off on The Who. I could be here some time.

If anyone doubts there prowess even in the later years, check out the Concert For New York on YouTube.

I hate to use youth lingo, but they "pwnd" that show.

I watched that. No-one even came close to the Who that night.
