I think it's hard for any band that can't follow up a stellar debut. I'm also tempted to chalk it up to that time period and all those bands like the Femmes that sort of beat down doors for those that followed but never really seemed to get the kind of recognition you're talking about. They never re...

Townshend is still a rock and roll animal, and he was the only thing that felt like the real thing. Loved Roger's pre-recorded "Yeeeaaaaahhhhh!"--in fact, aside from their voices and guitars I wonder if the rest might have been canned. Not that I'd blame them. I saw this same lineup severa...

Sooo.... the film was good, very well done, totally not kid tripe, made my son cry (in a good, empathetic way--he's 8). It's too "advanced" for really young kids (under 6), maybe. They may lose interest. It moves relatively slowly. The naysayers basically want it to be some cutesy romp. Bu...
