Who star hits out at Michael Moore - NME

Moore, who has just released his new documentary 'Fahrenheit 9/11', wanted to use Townshend's song 'Won't Get Fooled Again' for the release. However, the guitarist refused and now claims that Moore accused him of being in support of the war.

(snip)

"He says that I refused to allow him to use my song 'Won't Get Fooled Again' in his latest film, because I support the war, and that at the last minute I recanted, but he turned me down," he continued. "I have never hidden the fact that at the beginning of the war in Iraq I was a supporter. But now, like millions of others, I am less sure we did the right thing.

However, in a statement issued by Moore, he said: "Last year The Who asked me to do a documentary on their career. I was sorry I had to tell them that due to my need to finish 'Fahrenheit 9/11' I would not be able to make their film for them. ... I am sorry I wasn't able to do The Who documentary like they wanted me to, but this is certainly no way for Pete to show his anger, and frankly it is very embarrassing for him to behave in this manner, as he is the greatest rock star who ever lived."

-OK, so Moore might be a bit too abrasive, but Townshend does not come out of this too well. He supported the crusade? I would've expected more from a man as intelligent as Pete.
