Rock is dead, my ass! Need proof?! Look no further than The Who’s spirited appearance on Jimmy Fallon a few nights ago.
Roger still looks fit and trim enough to kick ass figuratively and literally, plus his voice sounds in top form. And Pete, still too cool for it all, playing at his wind milling best as they tore through “You Better You Bet” and one of my all-time favorite tunes of theirs, “I Can See For Miles”.
I know you talked about scaling back your live appearance, boys, but we’re really in no rush to see you leave. Keep showing most bands half your age and then some how it’s done.
Hi, I'm Pete Rizzo, early morning elixir for your weekends.
I love music and I love talking about it. I grew up listening to bands like Rush (best band on the planet!), Van Halen (Diamond Dave all the way), AC/DC (Bon rules!) and Genesis (the Gabriel years). But my true love is progressive rock and heavy metal. The louder, crunchier, more bombastic and self-indulgent, the better!
When I’m not on the air, I’m either training in martial arts, deciding which tattoo I should get next, reading a good book (I still enjoy turning actual pages), or my wife and I are planning our next big travel excursion.
I’m on every Saturday and Sunday morning. You can also follow me on on Twitter @PeteRizzoWBAB. I’d love to hear from you.
