Fans Cheer at 1979 Who Concert

'The Who' took several weeks off to recuperate after their Super Bowl performance. Roger Daltry called Pete Townshend after two weeks rest and screamed "Who, Who, Who are we, are we men in our sixties, or are we the Who, Who, Who". Daltry didn't have an answer but felt good enough that he had the question. Townshend knew the answer but was kind enough not to say.

Who is the Who? Entwistle and Moon are gone, gone, gone. Just like Lennon and Harrison. For one thing they are aging rockers Who long for the high notes and high jumps. Only Zak Starkey, the drummer, bounced back after the Super Bowl to perform with his father Ringo at 'The Cave' in Liverpool.

Rumors have been circulating since early February that Townshend and Daltry are in consultation with the Royal Academy of Medical Sciences in London to determine what can be refurbished or replaced to regain some of their youth. The Royal Academy is mum about the discussions. It is theorized that Townsend is considering the experimental hydrocarbon leg springs to regain his jump. Nothing has been said about Townshend's hearing. Daltry may be considering the artificial larynx that would duplicate all of his original vocal characteristics. This is highly experimental, and in Daltry's case exhaustingly complex, since the medical specialists must analyze every sound recording for every noise that emitted from the vocalist's mouth.

Talking about my generation. The best to the boys and their battle with time.
