    One of my top 5 who songs. It's underappreciated as far as I'm concerned. Thanks for sharing the video.

    Top 5? Wow.

    Pretty much anything on Tommy, Quadraphenia, or Who's Next get my vote before this song. This version sounds a bit rawer and better than I remember this song.

    I put this in the same category as Emotional Rescue album or any Zeppelin past the 4th album. It's not bad but not their best work.

    Thanks a LOT Frank. (facetious) I just wasted over an hour listening to Who songs on Youtube! lol

    The Who has some of the best intros there have ever been. Hard to pick a favorite.

    My favorite band is Led Zeppelin. My next two are The Who and Pink Floyd. I don't know what order though.

    Saw this song performed live at Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia and it was exhilarating. One hell of a concert.

    Ok, maybe I overshot myself on that one. I was like 10 cocktails into the wind when I wrote that comment LOL. That's what happens when my Giants are in a game 7 situation and I'm surfing VMB at the same time. But I gotta admit, I thought this video version was a stellar rendition.

    And I disagree with the poster about no great songs after Led Zep 4. Kashmir is one of their best and was on Physical Graffiti. There are also some pretty good songs on Houses of the Holy.

    Yellow Brick Road, an AWESOME classic rock cover band plays on Fremont Street, usually on Thursday nights at the first street stage, does an awesome cover of "Love Reign o'er Me". If you like good old fashioned Classic R&R Yellow Brick Road is a must do on your Vegas itinerary.

    Saw THE WHO the last tour Keith Moon played.
    Living in Phoenix circa '76 - '77.
    I was in the WAY BACK -- UPSTAIRS in the old Vet's Memorial.
    Funny thing was......
    The sound lag.
    Townsend would time his jumps to crash with the music crescendos -- POWER CHORDS + CRASH CYMBALS !!!!
    a second later - after the visual of his timed jumps -- I'd hear the crescendo !
