I was just reading an email from an acquaintance – an acquaintance who LOVES Rush. I like Rush too.
i especially like and enjoy many of Rush’s lyrics, written by Neal Peart. Or is it Niel Peart – spelling is not my forte.
But as much as I love the libertarian lyrics penned by Peart, I love The Who.
Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey.
Some laugh at me for the fact I spent over 250 bucks on tickets to see The Who, and one of the ticket holders was my three year old son. Yet, today, that wee son sometimes grins, and sings to me, “Who are you… who who.. who who..” and tells me how much he enjoyed seeing The Who himself.
Then there is my 19 year old – that stood up and couldn’t restrain himself during Baba O’Reilly.
I love Pete Townshend lyrics, and I love Roger Daltry belting them out.
I also love Pachelbel.
There are a few songs written by Pete Townshend, and sung by Daltrey that I predict will last – to the degree that in a few hundred years from now, or a few generations, people willl still be singing – just like today, some of us continue to whistle or listen to The Kanon by Pachelbel.
