The old song lyric “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday” certainly rings true for the surviving members of The Who, who tried to do that 35 years ago.
Pete, Roger, John and Kenney kicked off their only formally announced “farewell” US tour in Washington, DC this month back in 1982, wrapping things up a few months later in December with two nights in Canada.
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.
