Post Roger Daltrey
Because this forum is pretty much dying anyway, here's a new topic.

My aunt saw Roger Daltrey live one week ago... He was here (Rotterdam (at least I think it was Rotterdam, maybe Amsterdam)) for Last Night of the Proms. He performed 'See me, feel me' and the 'Pinball Wizard' from Tommy, and other songs from The Who. This aunt was also the same aunt that took me to see Tommy in the first place. He has aged quite a bit (which I'm sure you all know), his voice was older, but still quite enjoyable.

I'm so jealous! He certainly was one hot dude when he was in his twenties... Aww..

Actually I didn't see him myself, my aunt did.

And yes, he was really a good singer way back then :)

He is amazing on the Tommy soundtrack. "Listening To You/See Me, Feel Me" is his finest performance.

Yes he is :) I really loved him in the film too... But that was more physically than his singing ;)

Daltry is brilliant as the street singer in the Raul Julia/Richard Harris film version of Threepenny Opera too.

Roger Daltrey is to appear on one of the CSI series shortly as a Mob boss. Should be interesting.

Roger is amazing! The Who is my favorite band and I haven't seen Tommy but I plan on getting the movie soon. I love Roger's voice because it can adapt easily to any emotion and still sound great. I've always wanted to see him and Pete live. That's one of my dreams. :D

I saw The Who in September and it was an amazing concert. I have the official bootleg CD and DVD of that show too. www.themusic.com has official Who bootlegs for this world tour.

I did notice that Roger is not spinning his mic as muchn anymore. I recall he only did it a few times during the show I was at. He (and Pete) still have it, though.

Saw Daltrey on CSI recently and he was brilliant! He played a mob boss who was supposed to be dead... but he wasn't. In the episode, he had to play five roles... including a black woman. :)

He's a good actor and really sells stuff. I guess that's because he calls himself a "dramatist" of Pete's work and others.

Andy.
