Who said that?

Saw this Q&A in an interview with Pete Townshend by the Sacramento Bee. Gives me hope for the tour, actually, even though I had misgivings about Roger Daltry and Townshend reforming The Who...

Q: What do you say to fans who are sketchy about seeing the show since it's only half of the original band?

A: Wait a little longer; Roger and I will both die, then you'll be able to save even more money relying on your ancient memories.

No way, man. The es-car-gotta-go. It was a gag gift. Literally.

I saw The Who when they were in Phillips Arena a few years ago on what I thought would be the final tour....they are old. They are a bit slower. BUT, they are still The Who. Even with 2 -- and if Zack Starkey returns on drums -- they'll be fine. We'll miss Entwhistle, but it will still be worth seeing. I do remember the souvenir stand as nothing but a cathedral to all their failed solo works. That was not worth seeing.

Per the Bee, Starkey's on the tour (whose famous father folks would recognize, if they saw a "Photograph"). Also John "Rabbit" Bundrick on keys, Pino Palladino on bass and Simon Townshend (Pete's younger brother) on guitar/vox.
