Late Night FDL: Who Are You

The Who – Who Are You

The Who had best avoid Denver and Seattle during their US leg…

Roger Daltrey Doesn’t Want Fans Smoking Pot at Who Concerts

Boy, how things have changed since the ’60s. Roger Daltrey threatened to stop a Who concert last night after he smelled pot smoke in the audience.

According to Newsday, the band was playing a show at New York’s Nassau Coliseum yesterday when an abundant amount of weed smoke started to make itself to the stage. Apparently, the singer is allergic to marijuana smoke and it causes his voice to stop working.

You can see Daltrey scold the audience member with the wicked bud in the above video. He asks him to stop puffing or he would walk offstage. Then Pete Townshend gets a few words in too, before the fan apparently put away his stash and let the band continue on with its 50th-anniversary tour show.

Newsday‘s review notes that “the smoke’s impact was almost immediate on his voice, which went from crystal clear and potent for the opening ‘I Can’t Explain’ to something rougher and more limited during ‘I Can See for Miles.’”

Townshend’s been in a particularly prickly mood lately. Earlier this week, he released a new solo song, “Guantanamo,” about the Cuban prison camp where alleged torturing occurred following one of the wars the U.S. has been involved in over the past few years. In the song (which is from an upcoming solo compilation), he spits his words and hasn’t sounded this angry since that time he kicked a cop.

The Who’s 50th anniversary tour continues through November, with dates in North America and Europe. Townshend also has a special gig on July 5 in London, where his 1973 rock opera Quadrophenia will be performed by a classical orchestra.

What’s on your mind tonite…?

    CT, how’s weather in Paradise, ’cause it’s cold in Dixie – hi today of 57° with brisk northerly winds; low tonight in the 40°s.

    Edit: Was really just checking to see if my comment would post.

    What happened to the music?

  • TalkingWarrior

    I thought so, too – but we seem to have lost our host and other DJs, too.

    Edit: Last I saw was some mention of “orange sunshine tabs.” Maybe they’re off trippin’ somewhere. 😉

    The conspiracy theorist in me is getting that feeling …

    Earlier today my phone was acting up so badly on the net, I finally decided it was time to “afford” a new one.

    Remember Suz needing a new keyboard? Then eCAHN ended up replacing her whole system, repeatedly reminding us she knew several people having “computer problems.”

    Surely the Exceptional Nation isn’t the only State (or Corp., or oligarch) that can do the malware thing.

    “blockades, war and poor governance have strangled” are the reasons given for the withering of the Gazan economy…..

    before Hamas took over, and restarted the hostilities with Israel, the people of Gaza drew a large part of gaza’s income by working at jobs in Israel……but kidnapping an Israeli soldier…who was in Israel and not in Gaza…. got the border crossings sealed.

    It ain’t no use to sit and wonder why, babe,.if’n you don’t know by now

    bigger bummer. Iran, Syria and the Lebanese hezzies as well, as the Houthis in Yemen….are all busy spreading them regional wars even more than the Saudis…….. while the Turks are reacting to the fighting rather than starting it and the Israelis aren’t much involved at all…

    guess some of us don’t recognize reality as much as like to re-shape it to fit their pre-formed comment (hi Juan C)…

    Look, dub, you’re all ‘talk’…! Where’s the proof behind any of your well-rehearsed TP’s…? 8-(

  • dubinsky

    why I do believe that you’re being deliberately rude and trying to start a personal fight on a music thread.

    of course, if you think that Iran, the Assads the hezzies and the Houthis aren’t ass-deep in the fighting, and you’re so f’ed up as to claim that it’s only FOX propaganda that they are, you’re probably about half-passed brain dead anyway.

    but, what the heck, have a lovely evening and enjoy your delusions.

  • http://firedoglake.com/ CTuttle

    tut, you need proof that the Iranians and Assads and hezzies are fighting?????

    you don’t believe them when they say so?

    Your cognitive dissonance, on top of your MSM talking points regurgitations is awesome! Why you’d feel compelled to be another megaphone on top of their megaphone, a predictably sycophant ‘yes-man,’ is beyond me…

    Carry on, dub!

    Alrighty then, that’s a new one, dub…! I feel so much better now…!

  • dubinsky

    a modern manifestation of the Sunni-Shia fighting is a major facet.

    Iran’s regional ambitions are another.

    the Assad family’s struggle to maintain dictatorial control over the Syrian people a third.

  • dubinsky

    I’m sure that quite a few things are beyond you, ape, but let’s not try to claim that either of us aren’t individuals with working intellects and whose comments reflect their own ideas.

    let’s not try to pretend that either of us are merely slavish recyclers of some single source.

    let’s at least get Hegelian and admit to synthesis rather than merely crying :ersatz”.

  • http://mosquitocloud.net/ aprescoup

    That’s just shallow, conventional “wisdom,” aka. statist propaganda, piping through your mindlessly indoctrinated, authoritarian sycophant and uninspired, borg-brained orifice.

    You’re just another liberal-statist bore, dubinsky. Post some more comics, wont’cha, please!

  • dubinsky

    there’s something about conventional wisdom that is slightly more useful than is utter farfetched nonsense and pastiches from propaganda arms of authoritarian regimes.

    it’s usually a higher degree of conformity of the preponderance of the known facts.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJe1iUuAW4M

  • http://mosquitocloud.net/ aprescoup

    Let’s not kid ourselves, dub. Your individual “ideas” are but indoctrinated, conventional “wisdom,” stretching the Maddow through the Fox lineup spectrum of permissible opinion. You’re just another rootin’ and salutin,’ mindlessly authoritarian, cross-partisan “yes-man.”

    IOW: a boring bore.

  • dubinsky

    while I’m still laughing and not willing to join ape’s and other’s churlishness…….. it’s the music that counts.

    I can replicate your mature mind’s bloviations with brain farts from luminaries ranging from John Bolton to the cabinet appointees of the monopoly capitalism pusher Obama, and his entourage.

    You’re a useful – ahem – useless cypher for fascism, dub.

    *heh* Ask him his thoughts on Nato and/or Russia…! 😉

  • AKBob

    Sadly this will only be a stand there and wave thing , he will not speak, But we are invited to show up and i want to make a sign that stands out as there will be much media. Around here if i make it about fish it will sell. Crap i suck at investigation.

    Greet him with your back turned?!

  • AKBob

    I think i will make a sign that says..A long way to come to eat a real fish.

  • TalkingWarrior

    How about “We’ll trade our Inequality for your Equality” or some such as US just headed up the OECD (?) rankings as one of the most unequal of nations while Norway was at the top as one of the most equal.

    Edit: You could put a huge smiling fish and lots of sad minnows beneath “Inequality” and several equal-sized smiling fish beneath “Equality.”

    Such a sign also compliments the guest as is proper while making a point to the home viewers, also proper.

  • http://mosquitocloud.net/ aprescoup
  • AKBob

    Good point, but around here it’s fishing central. Give me a better idea or i stick with, your fucking farmed fish suck.

  • http://firedoglake.com/ CTuttle

    What type of fish are they farming, homer…?

  • AKBob

    Atlantic Salmon. And they farm them in BC also which threatens our wild stocks when they get loose.

  • AKBob

    They are trying to farm all kinds of fish in the oceans which will fuck up ecosystems much like GMO does.
