Oh, play it loud

THE WHO, live with Keith Moon - BABA O'RILEY
Video uploaded by pireterna - thanks very much.

Because some mornings you just...fill in the blank.

For Mr. Kelly and Mr. Anderson and all those Farewell Tours.

It's funny when I saw this I immediately though of the concert I went to in 1982 to see the Who in Orlando in what was supposed to be their "Farewell" tour. I did not realize then that they did not know what the word farewell meant.

WHO'd want to be a rock star?

I put this on low volume but even so the cats put their ears back. And WHO can blame them, I say.

Chocolate is effective too, or some exercise, on those mornings.

Sometimes it helps to fill in the blanks, with just about anything, but this is not just anything.

Laoch - Because I was a fan of The Who, I noticed the repeated Farewell Tours. I suppose that other bands also find it hard to give up the stage.

Penny - Not everyone's cup of tea, I realize. But when something that kicks it is indicated, this is my go-to choice. I never imagined that in my sixties, the music from much younger days would still speak to me. My brother was in a rock band in Australia in the 70s...MacKenzie Theory...my apologies to the cats.

Elisabeth - We consist of disparate, incongruous parts...and it takes what it takes.

Now watch the same tune performed live by the Blue Man Group using their strange gizmo instruments. Wild!!

Blue Man Group - Baba O'Riley

Now that I'm in my 60's, I consider it my second wildhood - what the hell.

Radish King said...

Ahhhh, wonderful. Thank you.
Greatest drummer EVER.

Robert - Does it make you think that Dr. Seuss had an influence...the giant Who-cardio Floox? Thanks for the link.

Kass - What the hell...our pajama tops and bottoms don't have to match, either. Peace.

Rebecca - You are welcome. Your post made me hanker to hear this and wear my virtual Keith Moon tee shirt. xo
