Wow, tough crowd, eh? Who knew Wilco fans (and bashers) were such a sensitive bunch? And Wilco isn't even an emo band... I think it's downright weird that almost all the posters of these latest volleys in this amusing conversation thread are as anonymous as they come... Guest wrote this, Guest wrote...

Wow, that's a really cool piece. Thanks for writing that, Tom. I remember being your age and feeling the exact same way. All I'd wanna add (and take or leave this advice) is to always challenge yourself with new sounds. Don't ever let your tastes stagnate; you'll find stuff that will still turn your...

Keith Moon & headphones

Keith Moon was more or less "forced" to wear headphones when performing songs like "Baba O'Riley" and "Won't Get Fooled Again" in concert due to the fact that with their synth parts, he didn't always know when to come in.

Dave Marsh doesn't mention why "The Ox"

Nope, I've scanned the Dave Marsh bio <b>Before I Get Old: The Story of The Who</b> (which I recommend sorta, although Richard Barnes' <b>The Who: Maximum R&B</b> is a better book and an excellent read). Although it didn't spill the beans about why he is called that, it did tell that at one poin...

the ox

I'm sure the news services will give a thousand answers as to why he was called the Ox, but I think it was due to his stage tendency to just stand there and make a thunderous noise without going wild. Kind of like an ox, I guess. I saw that it referred to his physical stature, but while he was tall,...

John Entwistle Is Gone, Long Live The Ox!!

I was stunned by the news that John Entwistle had died of a heart attack yesterday. The Who is one of those bands who changed most of our lives; for me, my rock cherry was popped at the tender age of 8 by the original 1969 Tommy album. That was it; I've sold my soul to rock and roll, and that album ...
