I Don't Need To Be Forgiven

Last night at Virgin I found a DVD of The Who with Eddie Vedder, Bryan Adams, Kelly Jones and Noel Gallagher for nine bucks on sale.

Of course, I had to buy it. It's an awesome DVD from the Royal Albert Hall and if you ever find it I strongly urge you to get it.

After watching it Rome Girl says she thinks that really, overall, The Who are a better concert band than the Rolling Stones.

"The Stones are so blues based," she said, "that they don't translate well into stadiums and arenas. They should be in bars and clubs. The Who sound like they were meant to be in stadiums and arenas."

My argument would be simply that the Who with Townsend's weird sad anger simply translates better into 2007 than the Stone's mentality which is still stuck somewhere between 1968 and 1973.
