    I caught a drumstick at a Journey concert one time....not even close.

    It was quite fabulous, until the weight of the crowd was upon me trying to get the drumstick.

    Tom Wright is a photographer who got to know Pete Townsend at Art School and acted as The Who's road manager for their first US tour. A few years ago he published a book about his experiences. It's really, really good and if you're a Who fan, you should get it (there's also stories about his experiences with other bands including Joe Walsh, Eagles and JD Souther).

    Wright gave a lot of photos to The University of Texas at Austin, and they've now put up an exhibition of a hundred photos - mostly of The Who - on a website.

    Thanks for the find, UTW. Joe was his usual charming and funny self in the videotaped speech, and I love all the photos of the band. Tom even managed to capture a rare shot that featured Roger and his beautiful wife, Heather.

    I like them, but not as much as I did when I was 17-18 years old. Good hard rocking sounds, but Pete Townshend often gets quite preachy for my tastes(Maharishi, the little boy who heard music, etc). They did put out quite a few good tunes. Having said that, I wish they'd just hang it up already(same goes for the Rolling Stones, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Foreigner, Boston, etc). Daltrey & Townshend aren't the only two who made the who what they were(may Moon & Entwistle RIP).

    Top 10 Who songs:

    1. Going Mobile
    2. We're Not Gonna Take it
    3. The Real Me
    4. Bargain
    5. I'm Free
    6. I Can't Explain
    7. Tommy Overture
    8. Slip Kid
    9. Call Me Lightning
    10. The Good's Gone
