    Tonight they play three sets. First and third are with an orchestra. Until I saw the set list, I never gave much thought as to how many of their recorded songs are with an orchestra. So instead of piping in the orchestra, they’ll have one complete with conductor.
    A close friend played in that orchestra.

    The orchestra was amazing. Pete Townshend said they practiced with the orchestra for just one week. Only true professionals could master all those songs in just one week. The violinist who played the lead at the end of Baba O’Riley was incredible. She was up and dancing with Roger Daltrey and it was obvious that she was having a blast and was fantastic at the same time.
    Drumming since 1961.

    That sounds amazing Marv. My wife had cataract surgery last week on one eye and this week on the other. She had the multi focal lenses put in. It was successful and now she has no need for glasses. Insurance doesn’t cover the multi focal lenses but we decided it was the best option. My brother commented now she might want to rethink her decision to marry me 25 years ago due to excellent vision. I told him he’s no walk on the beach either.

    Lonny how is the Band situation ? Good I hope.

    Next Wednesday my MHX will have the Matching 14x6.5 Snare w/Die Cast hoops & SKB padded hard case. Can’t wait .I will post pics of course!

    The guitarist and the bass player got into jazz and kept trying to get me funky. I never had been accused of being funky before.

    Maybe it's because I'm only starting
    That I think it won't take too long
    Maybe it's because I can see you laughing
    That I think you've got it wrong
    Maybe I could be like Robin Hood
    Like and outlaw dressed all in green
    Someone said, "What's he gonna turn out like"
    Someone else said, "Never mind"
    Well, I was big and bold and more than twice as old
    As all the cats, I'd ever seen
    I grew my hair and bought a suit
    Of shiny white or was it cream
    I shook and shivered danced and quivered
    And stood on a mountain top
    No one came from miles around and said
    "Man, your music is really hot"
    Well, I knew what they meant because I was a freak
    Ah, my throat was tired and worn
    My pretty face just looked out of place
    As they poured on the scorn
    I wrote…
    Well, I could write a million songs about the things I've done
    But I could never sing them so they'd never get sung
    There's a law for the rich and one for the poor
    And there's another one for singers
    It's die young and live much longer
    Spend your money and sit and wonder
    No one came for miles around
    And said man your music is really funky
    Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
    And say things as they really are
    But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
    Could I ever be a star
    Nobody knows who's real and who's fakin'
    Everyone's shouting out loud
    It's only the glitter and shine that gets through
    Where's my Robin Hood outfit
    Well, I've come and I've gone before you wink an eye
    No one even cared enough to say goodbye
    The money's good and the time you have
    Fun and games galore
    But you spend your money and lie in bed forgotten
    And wonder what you did it for
    No one came from miles around
    And said, "Man, who's he?"
