Just released a statement for the WHO tour in the first half of 2005. Not much detail yet except: They are releasing their 1st album in 23 yrs. and only original members are Daltrey, and Townshend. Joining them are Pino Palladino on Bass and Zak Starkey, Ringo's son on Drums. Any Thoughts:

It's not The Who without The Ox!!!
I was never a fan of Cream, Clapton, in my opinion, hasn't done anything "God like" since Derek & The Dominos. I hope for all the Cream fans thet Jack Bruce will play a fretted bass, he's so off (off key I mean) when he plays fretless! Sorry to be negative but it's my fourth week end in a row at work.

I'd be curious to see what direction Pete's writing has gone. The last thing I dug was White City.

Hopefully, Daltrey's voice will be better this year. he sounded a little "rough" at times the past couple of years IMO.

I think they are ready again, besides there's always the track and lip sync trick!

I've seen the "Who" on several occasions since the '89 Farewell/Reunion Tour including the Quadraphenia Tour in the late '90s. Each time they were great.

None of these classic bands (Who, Stones, Page/Plant, Dead, Pink Floyd and yes, even our Brothers) are anywhere near what they were in their hey day. And while many will argue that at least one of these bands (can't imagine which one) has evolved, face it, they'll never be as good as they once were. That being said, let's embrace all these bands for what they are, ageing rock stars who still enjoy giving us that certain pleasure.
Who care what instruments they play (fretless bass or whatever) the point is that they're out there playing those great tunes, worts and all.

The only question I have is: Are they still the Who? Mabey they should take a page out of the Led Zep and Grateful Dead vets book, maybe "Townshend & Daltry" or "The What"or how about "It's Us".

The point is, stop dissecting everything and just enjoy it while we can.

It's not The Who without the Ox? Sorry guys, but I think there's some underlying thoughts there that you aren't telling us. I'm sure lots of people say the same thing about the Allman Brothers, Gov't Mule, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and countless other bands. I certainly think that the bands aren't the same without those particular "lost" members, but great bands change and evolve over time. Overall point is that I completely agree with otherhandmer.

It is new material Daltrey and Townshend have written for an album directed at new fans as well as their following. It is tenativly called "The Who2".................they know it's not "The Who". Should be interesting.

I saw that same rendition of The Who on tour two summers ago. They rocked. I'll see them again if they come anywhere near me.

I saw the Who in '02--bought tickets before the Ox died, went afterward. I was surprised at how truly great they were. There was a missing thunder to the bass lines, but the band was tight and very energetic. Daltrey's voice was right on, too. I'd see them again.

Besides, the Who is one of the few concerts I could get my wife to!

I can't say I'm expecting greatness from this new cd, though. I'm with Charliec--White City was the last compelling Townshend work I've heard.

Sounds reasonable enough

Saw The Who in '69 and '73, saw the farewell tour for Cream. If I have a choice it will be Cream. Better chance of a good show.

i saw one of the last 2 shows of the 02 tour. its funny, they had their version of the live music series and i had never been to a concert with that before and almost bought it. then i realized it was like 25 bucks and every show on the tour had the same setlist. that was a bummer and i never did buy it. i guess you cant really expect much changes in their setlists...

They are doing something no band that I could think of is doing. They changed the name (it is'nt official yet), or thinking of being called WHO2, which is a play on words in many ways: 2 Who members left, The Who part 2 etc. How bad could they be with their line-up. Zak is young to be able to direct them in the youngins' realm of music and a new bass player changes the old Who's dynamics. There is no one like The Spider! The songs will be new for the times so we just have to wait and see.They should be good. If not, they can call themselves : "WHY"

They could call themselves "Why" or "What" and it would work on a few different levels.

WOW, so Cream is going to tour? Hadn't heard about that. And from what I read on here, with Jack Bruce? Yes!!! But I guess no Ginger Baker?

It would be good to see Clapton cut loose like he used to. I've always felt since he started singing love songs...zzzzzzz...

It has'nt been released that they will tour. They are reuniting at the Royal Albert Hall in London for sentimental reasons and are discussing a 4 nite concert. No talk yet about an American tour, and yes Ginger Baker was with Cream so he will be the drummer minus his firehose as Baker left the 'biz' to be a firefighter!

LOL I have already seen 2 different Final reunion tours of the Who about 10 years apart. I would go again if the price isn't ridiculous.
Ginger Baker lived for a while here in Colorado where he played in a little jazz band. his big thing was playing polo! The IRS came after him and he moved out of the country.

Yeah Jack, I heard he was a fireman in Africa. That's what Mark Hudson told me. Save your money for London, I'll be there!
