So I got the chance to see The Who perform at the Key Arena tonight and it was pretty amazing. I knew that they would be good, I mean they're The Who, but I didn't know they'd be as good as they were. They played a bunch of great famous songs like Pinball Wizard, My Generation, Who Are You, You Better You Bet, Baba O'Riley (Teenage Wasteland), & Won't Get Fooled Again. They also played a bunch of songs from their new album (the first in 20+ yrs) which is coming out soon. Those songs were good to; it's hard to compare them to the older songs because those are rock & roll classics but they were certainly enjoyable.

Everything sounded great all around, the musical instruments and the vocals. Pete Townshend can really wail on his guitar and Roger Daltrey screams with the best of them. I left the concert with a pleasant fuzziness in my hearing ability!

Anyway, I still kind of can't believe that I got to see The Who. I'm still excited about it! And on Tuesday I get to see the Rolling Stones (w/special guest Dave Matthews Band)...I think I may soon go deaf.

Oh, and hearing "Won't Get Fooled Again" always makes me think of the Bushism "Fool me.....can't get fooled again" and The Daily Show making fun of it:

In other rock & roll related news, I was able to see the new John Lennon documentary "The US VS John Lennon" last weekend. I would recommend the film based solely on the fact that you get to hear tons of Beatles and Lennon's solo music which is always a treat. I also loved watching all of the protest footage from that era. It was interesting to see the unique things that John and Yoko did to non-violently protest the Vietnam war. They showed lots of footage of John and Yoko's "bed in" which they held, in lieu of a honeymoon, like a sit in protest. It was funny watching them try to explain their concept of "total communication," which consisted of them hiding themselves in a bag, to the press which just wanted pictures of them and who were baffled by what they were doing. I also loved seeing the billboards that they bought all around the world that read "War is over if you want it. Merry Christmas, John & Yoko." I've heard the song merry x-mas (war is over) but I never knew they financed a billboard campaign to go along with it.

I was also interested in the details of the plot to get John & Yoko deported because of their influence over the new younger voting bloc. But ultimately, even though the "US VS" part of the movie was interesting I think the reason it was enjoyable was because John Lennon was such an unrivaled, unique personality and it was great to see so much footage of him that I hadn't previously seen. Also, the documentary did a good job of keeping the commentary relevant to the time period instead of drawing parallels to the present (although there were one or two comments) but I was struck by how many disturbing parallels I was drawing during the movie, they didn't have to do it for me.
