    just purchased it, almost seven years later. mrs. shockey still refuses to watch.

    how well done it was really incredible, all things considered. "the who" stole the show, no easy task.

    jagger looked pretty good. keith richards?! yikes!! how is he still breathing?! :eek: :eek: :eek:

    How much did that run you, Shockey?

    It was on the Classic New Years Day but I forgot to watch it. I'd pay just for The Who.

    The Who absolutely killed that show. Fucking awesome.
  7. I've seen The Who seven times. I saw the original lineup in 1969, 1971 (Best. Concert. Ever. for me), and on the dreadful Quadrophenia tour in '74. I saw them during the unfortunate Kenney Jones period, and as the revived big band with Zak for the Quadrophenia anniversary tour. So I do not say this idly.
    They were never better than they are in that performance, particulaly Won't Get Fooled Again.

    Why must you
    ever be going?
    Two more months-ah
    Ten more weeks-ah
    We got to deal
    With one of these geeks-ah

    Ah, Giuliani!
    Giu-li-an-i! Let me hear you!
    He's diplomatico
    Meeting leaders-o
    From all around the globe
    But if you blame USA
    Stick your 10 million up your robe


    Giu-li-an-i! Let me hear you!
    I will-ah miss you
    Senor Rudy
    So tough but oh so sweet
    Only good thing about your leaving?
    We get the hookers back on the street

    Hey America!
    Come to New York!
    Do-ah some shopping, catch a play
    And if you see a lonely fireman
    Give that guy a thank-you lay!
    (And the cops too, and the cops too)

    bring New York together
    we even like the Steinbrenner
    Now we break applause meter
    With two words
    Der-ek Jet-er!
    He hits
    He fields
    He's got a cute-ah face
    Even Operaman would let him get to second base

    The Who reunites
    Pete and Rog-ah no more fight-ah
    They smash the guitar
    and swing micro-phoners
    Plus Mick Jagger's on the bill
    Paul McCartney, what a thrill!
    But it's Destiny's Child that gave me a bone-ah!
    I've got a bone-ah!
    A Jewish circumcised bone-ah!
    Can't get rid of this bone-ah!
    Operaman wish he was alone-ah!

    Oh Mr. Bin Laden
    Why are he so angry?
    Just look-ah at him
    And he no can touch the rim
    He no let women read
    He no let women vote-ah
    That's why the only love he get
    Is from a mountain goat-ah
    He wants to spread disease-o
    In our mail box
    Cause he himself suffers
    From a case of small cocksssssss
    Oh-sama kiss my ass
    Oh-sama bite my dink
    Oh-sama go to hell
    Oh-sama get a shrink
    Oh-sama says he tough
    Oh-sama says he's brave
    Then tell me why Oh-sama
    Is shitting in a cave! Hey!

    It was an hon-ah
    To sing for you
    Operaman had so much fun
    Cause New York City
    Te Adoro!
    You'll always be
    our number one!

    Operaman! Bye bye!

    My God that was amazing. Goosebumps from start to finish. It was like the musical equivalent of watching David Cone's perfect game: An aging icon recaptures the brilliance of his peak.

    "We could never follow what you did."

    If you notice, too, the song ends at the 9:11 mark.
  12. Exactly the way I felt, BYH.
    Townshend looked unbelievably pissed off during that whole number and, as Dave Marsh wrote, with Townshend raging, they really were the greatest rock band of all time. And let us all pause for a moment in awe of the late Mr. Entwistle's bass playing.
