“ This here ain’t no protest song or anything like that, cause I don’t write no protest songs.
“ When I first started hobo’in,
I took a freight train to be my friend.
“ I told people I was a drummer before I even had a set, I was a mental drummer.
“ Why did they keep changing guitars and amplifiers when they were perfect? They did the same things with cars, if you ask me. They forgot how to make them right, because they focused on style and bells and whistles.
“ I start a lot more songs than I finish, because I realize when I get into them, they’re no good. I don’t throw them away, I just put them away, store them, get them out of sight.
“ What the Who is all about is exactly that and it always has been. If it exists today for this concert, it’s in response again to a function which is happening out there on the street.
