Is the "Sally" in "Baba O'Riley" the same one as the chick in "Tommy"? [Sally Simpson, that is]

I thought you all might be interested in this piece of information:

Yesterday me and my dad were out shopping around and we ran into his friend Jimmy. Dad told me before that Jimmy had played with the Who (backup band, I believe) and I asked him if that was him and dad went to ask him and Jimmy was like "Yah! I played with the Who and Cream and a bunch of other bands." and he went on to say "This was in Edmonton. They ended up staying for three days (!!!) at (some band)'s managers house. Peter Townshend and Keith Moon got into a fight and Keith was walking around the house with a black eye!!" ...I never knew that. I didn't think anyone else would either so why not share it here. (and other places!!!)

Hello all!  I just joined this community thing yesterday so I thought I'd post and introduce myself.  :-)  I'm a 19-year-old college student from Virginia and I just got into The Who a few months ago.  I love them.  I would try to pick a favorite member or song or whatever but I have a feeling my brain would explode...lol, I dig them all.  :-)  Anyway, just wanted to say hello, you guys seem like a cool bunch and I'm sure I'll be posting here more.  Peace!  8-)

(I'm going to try and cross-post this to some other Who communities that I joined recently, too...we'll see how that goes, I guess.)

I found this Community and figured I might as well join it.  I'm now part of four Who fan Communities;

thewho , whos_generation , this one, and my own Who Community, thewhosellout .  I love The Who; they're my favorite band of all time, and any discussion about them satisfies my obsession.  While we're there, I always ask this question, and though it's overplayed, I always love the feedback I get (sometimes heated): in your opinion, which of the two rock operas, Tommy or Quadrophenia, do you perfer (and why)?  So far, I've been getting mixed reviews.  Anyhow, I've been a Who fan for years, so any little tidbits I find are interesting.  Just a side note to the creator of this Community; where did you find the picture in the background?  It's awesome!  Did the text come with it, or did you put it on there?  Just curious.  Anyway, I've been desparately looking for people to join my community (there's exactly one person other than me there), so if you're at all interested, please follow the link.  You have to join to post, but that's really all.  Have fun and post often.

I wanted to say that The Who are a band that mean alot to me. I was 14 when my brother-in-law played the "Live at Leeds" album for me, and my life was changed forever. After that I went to my local library and took out everything they had by the Who, which turned out to be "Tommy", "Quadrophenia"(my favorite), "Meaty, Beaty, Big and Bouncy" and "The Who Sell Out". I taped them all and wore them out to the point where you could hear both sides of the tape at once! My days involved school, then The Who. I would return home after my classes for the day and smoke a little grass then listen to whatever Who I had.
The Who really made me literate in music. From them I started listening to the mod stuff, like The Creation. From there I got into the Beatles, and then the early Rolling Stones. From there I got to Dylan, which was another turning point. From there I went everywhere, Captain Beefheart, Tom Waits, Frank Zappa, The Band, onto the Talking Heads, Chocolate Watch Band, Shadows of Knight, The Sonics, The Monks, The MC5, to punk. to p[ost-punk...well, you get what I'm saying.
The chemistry that The Who had live was intense and huge. I find myself zoning out to Keith Moon's ferocious and articulate drumming sometimes. Other times its the incredible almost stoner rock bass of John Entwistle. Pete of course, the sloppy alternate strum that could shake down the great wall of China. And of course Roger, the mic spinning, competitive singer that could make you really believe that the beach is a place that a man can feel he's the only soul in the world thats real.
The Who are the greatest band of all time, anyone that says any different is uninformed.

Some current recommendations:
The Who -"Live at the Isle of Wight" dvd

The Who-"Live at the Young Vic" double cd set

The Who-"25 years of Maximum R&B"

Hello, I'm new. My name is Elyse and I'm starting my third year in high school. I dig The Who verrry much. The Who is most definitely my favorite band. I love John, Keith, and Roger but Pete is my favorite, I am soooo much in love with him. It's really great finding all of these Who communities. I look forward to meeting some of you guys.

Hey I just joined, so I thought I'd introduce myself...my name is Missy, I'm 19, and go to the University of Dayton. The Who is absolutely my favorite band, and I'm a huge fan of theirs. My favorite member is Roge, but I also love Pete. I've even read a biography about Pete and The Who, and fell in love with them more after I read them. I also play the guitar and piano. Well, just wanted to say hi.

Hey, to all The Who fans out there! There is now a wonderful Who community that's just getting started. It's being run by katypunkchik, oolucky83oo, and juliejules4080.
We will all kinds of games and interesting facts about the members. So if you love Roger Daltrey for his sexy chest, Pete Townshend for his windmill, John Entwistle for his awesome bass thunderfingers, or crazy Keith Moon then this is the community for you!

whos_generation It's our Generation!

We will open soon, please feel free to join! :)

hi, I'm emily. just really started to get into the who, but as my beatles fetish can attest, once I get into a band I go a little nuts.
anyway, still looking for the whole story behind the band, but current fave member is Pete, followed closely by John. Um, guess that's it.

Introduction... [06 Mar 2004|09:39pm]

I joined this community eariler in the week and I don't think I ever bothered to introduce myself! Anyway, my name is Jennifer, I'm a freshman in h.s., I play guitar, and I'm in love with Pete Townshend.

I think that's enough for now.

welkom 2 teh kamp [23 Feb 2004|09:53pm]
Hey...the Who is my favourite band (tied with a few others). My favourite member is all of them tied together, though Pete was my favourite for the longest time when I first found out about them, and then John was my favourite for a while. Now I'm going through a bit of a Keef Moon phase...though I still dig them all equally (yes, Roger too!). Pete's the one I can relate to the most.

Can anyone make me an icon of the very last picture on this page? Make it very plain, like an icon base really, with a veryveryveryVERY thin black border around it...thanks.

Hey there, I just found this community and it says very sternly in the community info that no lurkers are allowed so I thought I'd post and introduce myself. I'm Sarah, born in Toronto, Canada. I'm 20 and got into The Who by my mom. I saw them on the most recent tour at the Air Canada Centre. That's about it for now.
