A Friend of mine sent me a link about a Who tribute album that will be coming out on October 2nd.
I’m generally a believer in the philosophy that you don’t f@%$* with the infinite, but I have to admit, I’m pretty impressed with both the song selection and the players who will be appearing: K.K. Dowling (Judas Priest), Joe Elliot (Def Leppard), Dave Davies (Kinks), Rick Wakeman (Yes), Todd Rundgren, Iggy Pop, Pat Travers, Leslie West (Mountain) Randy Bachman (BTO), Ian Paice (Deep Purple), Joe Lynn Tuner (Rainbow), and let’s not forget Peter Noone from Herman’s Hermits.
Without hearing it, I’d have to guess that it will sound pretty good, but without Roger Daltrey’s voice, it won’t be quite right. I suppose we’ll see if it’s the singer or the song that makes the music move along.
