Well, Here's a Poke at You . . .

Lately, I have been doing the 'night owl' thing (my mice are now staring at me reproachfully) because my biorhythms are changing again, so I use it as an opportunity to see what TV station managers think is worth watching to those of us who can't sleep. While surfing the channels, I paused at an infomercial for Time-Life's CD collection, "Legends".

"Cool!" I thought, "Music for old guys like me!" So I hung around, mainly to immerse myself in music while I read, and whom should I see co-hosting the 'show' but that more famous old guy, Roger Daltrey! WTF!

Those of you who are around my age may remember that way back in 1967, the Who released an album entitled, "The Who Sell Out". ROGER, SHAME ON YOU! YOU REALLY HAVE SOLD OUT!

P.S. I would like this dedication to go out to the illustrious and injudicious Tom DeLay:

The Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again".

Not Roger Daltrey, please, tell me you're kidding.  My daughter was beginning to believe that my generation might have a clue because of Teenage Wasteland, Bad Man Behind Blue Eyes, et al.  If she finds out about this, I'm a goner.

Cynthia, it's sad but true. I can (maybe) understand Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, and Steppenwolf allowing their material to be used in commercials, but the Who??
I am truly bummed.

Big O.
