61. This is why I prefer to see a good cover band instead

of the original live. I still have my CDs and old concert DVDs, and I take solace in them. I can't see paying $100 to see old timers struggling to perform. I prefer to remember them in their prime as intact bands. Also I can see some real good cover bands for free at our summer festivals. Smaller crowds. Just get the lawn chair out, grab a ribeye steak sandwich, and enjoy them.

The Who were magical once, and I have those memories. So much support is just trying to relive the past and not seeing what is on stage now. Of course a 60+ year old man is not going to be able to do what a 25 year old man can do. I won't begrudge Daltrey and Townsend making a buck. Folks don't have to pay for the tickets. The audience gets the opportunity to relive the past. Just count me out. I am going to watch The Kids are Alright instead, and think of seeing the movie with my good High School friend. Also remember seeing them live the only time in 1980 in Baton Rogue with my brother. Moon was gone, but they still had life. Seeing their "Final Concert" in my dorm cafeteria in 1984. I wish that really had been their last concert. Hearing Quadrophenia for the first time while eating pizza with my best friend. Those are great memories.

I don't care that they don't sound exactly the same as they did 35 years ago. I just like watching them perform together. Do you seriously think Kanye will be doing his schtick when he's 65?

63. as proven by your posts as well

Despite what you may believe, there is no "objective truth" when it comes to evaluating rock music performances. I suspect I've seen the Who more often and over a longer period of time than pretty much anyone on this board. Is it the same band I saw back as four piece with Keith and John in the 60s? Of course not. But imo they put on a tighter, tougher performance than just about anyone out there tonight. Alicia Keys? Seriously boring. Bruce -- not at his best at all. Paul with Nirvana? Interesting, but limiting.

Those are my opinions. Yours differ. So be it.

67. I'll challenge you on that

saw them before Tommy at the Fillmore east and Tommy 3 times plus I think a total of 7 times including the "74 tour. I sent my kids on 11/5 to go see them.. They loved them. In the past year I took my kids to see Clapton, Beck and the Allman's.
I saw Bruce at Red Rocks in '80 and I walked away as think it was false spontaneity. That is was all practiced and rehearsed. I thought jumping on the piano was bullshit. I never felt that about the Who or any of the other bands I mentioned.

I saw everyone including Joplin.

66. so what no apostrophe.

nit picking. I didn't think Springsteen was so great tonight. I always think he over performs and I think his act is very rehearsed. There is little spontaneity in it and it's all been done before. Like jumping on the piano is"spontaneous" I did think Clapton and Waters were excellent and I did see Cream, Blind faith, 461 Ocean Blvd tours and to this day one of my big regrets is not seeing Derek.

As far as Red Rocks goes. I saw the Dead, Joni MItchell with Pat Methany, Santana, Bruce and others there. What is your experience there?

Also your comments show a ahole when I have seen one.

Other than that, yeah, it is EXACTLY like karaoke. Oh, I forgot the millions of people who disagree with your opinion.

At the end of the day, they are entertainers who bring joy and excitement. It is not a science, it is a performance and I thought Roger was impressive as hell.

rockers together on the same stage.

Jagger, Richards, Daltry, Townshend, McCartney, Waters, Clapton ... all around 70 years old.

(I thought the 9/11 concert was the last time, but this really will probably be the last time.)

That one poster here could not simply post his criticism once or twice, but felt compelled to do so continuously and obsessively in response to anyone who said anything positive whatsoever in this and the other thread, is, well, his problem.

Any humble contribution I could afford to make to this cause pales in comparison to the chance to see these iconic, if aging, performers one last time. Great cause and a very impressive line-up of talent.

60. You never know who they invited who couldn't/wouldn't come

When you're setting something like this up, you pretty much have to decide if you're going to pay the acts or not. My guess is they probably only paid for travel expenses. There are some acts who absolutely, positively will not perform at benefits for free, no matter how honorable the cause. Phony Joanie Baez is one.

62. Time-tested and massively popular seems to be what

they were shooting for. I am seeing a LOT of youngsters on the #121212Concert feed diggin' the old guys and knowing who they are. One teenage girl on there said she had Billy Joel posters on her wall as a pre-teen, haha! Good for her!

73. Very simple

They were aiming for an age group that has disposable income - that's people in their 40s and 50s - rock and rollers than can afford the $2500 ticket price. The artists were performing for free to help out their neighbors and you complain they don't sound like they did at the height of their careers. I will honor them for what they accomplished last night.

4. ITA! I've enjoyed the whole concert but the Who - especially Roger Daltrey - are killing me.

40. They've held up better than one of their biggest fans has (that's me).

I was kinda hoping Pete would smash his guitar at the end. You know, just for old time's sake.

But it was good to see them again.

41. Most of the show has been very energetic

That's what rock n roll is all about. This show, with the old school rock and rollers, is a testament to the survival instinct.

59. They carried the most defiance

The lyrics weren't as relevant as others, but they had the attitude to match the general contempt towards the hurricane itself that many people must feel.

74. Went to a Who concert a week and three days ago.

Despite the turd upthread's opinion, Roger sounded just fine to me.

However, I'm a Townshend girl and got to hug Pete's little brother, Simon, so I was happy.
