DESPITE signage to stay calm, people responded with wild and noisy adoration when The Who appeared on stage at Roger's Arena in Vancouver on Friday 13th this weekend.
The British rock band that began over 50 years ago is still going strong with two original members, singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist/songwriter Pete Townshend.
The past fifty years were kind to 72-year-old Daltrey whose powerful voice had an emotional edge and raw richness to it that in my opinion superseded the voice of his youth.
The walls reverberated with LOOOUDDD rocking sounds and I wondered if I was the only one uncool enough to plug my ears now and then.
They played some of their biggest hits, including My Generation, Pinball Wizard and I Can See For Miles.
When I got home I found a video from a television show they did years ago when they had more hair and seemed a bit more constrained than they currently were at the arena.
I think this group got better and better (as did the light show) and grew into their most meaningful tunes over time.
