The Who rocks the WHO summit.

Geneva, Switzerland - Members of The WHO came together this week to address concerns about growing health crises around the world and to answer questions about a possible upcoming tour.

Frontman Roger Daltrey expressed grave concerns about what he called "my generation" but said he still felt "the kids are alright." Clearly, Roger thinks the elderly are more at risk of contracting diseases sweeping the globe than are the youth of today.

Pete Townshend was asked how worried he was about the containment of the Ebola virus and responded, "Oh, I definitely think it's an Eminence Front. We've enlisted the help of Dr. Baba O'Riley to study the disease and he won't get fooled again, I can assure you."

Townshend continued, "I'm not going to lie, this is another tricky day for our world right now. But will we figure out a way to beat these diseases? You better you bet!"

Moments later, an AP reporter walked into the room from the back and inquired as to why everyone was asking the rock band questions about health and disease outbreaks.

Mr. Daltrey looked quizzically at the reporter and asked "Whooooooooooo are you? Who who, are you?"

The reporter explained there was a press conference across the street taking place with the WHO (World Health Organization) and suggested the other reporters were at the wrong location.

Several of the reporters did seem confused about why the WHO members were singing all of their answers.

As the reporters realized their mistake and started leaving the room, Mr. Daltrey stood up, smashed an amplifier with his microphone, and stormed off stage.

Mr. Townshend politely muttered into his microphone, "See you next tour," and exited stage left.
