did you see my note earlier about the bands playing for free outside the gates
they were pissed of about the promoters getting all the cash etc, so some bands set up outside and played for free
hawkwind and the pink fairies.

Roger Daltrey and Paul Weller consider collaboration

Who frontman and the Modfather are longtime friends but have never worked together on an album before

Roger Daltrey could collaborate on a new album with Paul Weller. The two musicians have been in conversation about a record "idea", according to Daltrey, and hope to "come up with something" in the next few months.

"Paul Weller's been talking about an idea that he's been working on, which I'd love him to do," Daltrey said in an interview with the NME. "I've been very bad at finding material and he [has this] idea ... He's always said to me, 'Why don't you sing more?' and I always say, 'Find me some material.' So we'll see if we can come up with something."

Although they have never worked together on an album, Daltrey and Weller are longtime friends. They collaborated on a rendition of Magic Bus at the 2009 Hop Farm festival and again this week, on a shared bill for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

If Daltrey and Weller do go into studio together, the nature of the team-up is anybody's guess. Weller's solo albums have continued to garner acclaim, up to and including this month's Sonik Kicks, but the Modfather tends to do his own singing. Daltrey, meanwhile, hasn't released a solo album in two decades. His last record, 1992's Rocks in the Head, was mostly written with G Tom Mac's Gerard McMahon. It did not crack the charts.

the track "Little Billy" was written by Pete for the American Cancer Society, but it never saw the light of day because it never left the office of the record executive Townshend submitted it to.
 Sad    Sad    Sad  

Little Billy was the fattest kid in his class
Always the last in line
All the other little kids would laugh at him
Said he'd die before his time

Ha ha ha ha
Little Billy didn't mind

Most of the kids smoke cigarettes
Just to prove that they were cool
The teacher didn't know about the children's games
And Billy always followed the rules

Ha ha ha ha
Little Billy didn't mind

Billy was big on the outside
But there's an even bigger man inside
Ten million cigarettes burning every day
And Billy's still doing fine

Now Billy and his classmates are middle-aged
With children of their own
Their smoking games are reality now
And cancer's seed is sown

Ha ha ha ha
Little Billy's didn't mind

Most of them smoke maybe 40 a day
A habit Billy doesn't share
One by one they're passing away
Leaving orphans to Billy's care

Ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha
Little Billy doesn't mind

Ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha
Little Billy's doing fine

 Sad    Sad    Sad

I look at Richmond married couples denim look. I look at baggy suits and leather capped with puke.

I thought they were really good.

I have tickets to see them in Detroit and Chicago. They are the best ever.

Rabbit noodled with a ring modulator near the window, trying to appear oblivious to the gathering pall.

rhymes w/ florist

Taurus Strength Keywords:
- Dependable
- Persistent
- Loyal
- Patient
- Generous
Taurus Weakness Keywords:
- Stubborn
- Laziness
- Possessive
- Materialistic
- Self-indulging

Taurus and Independence:
Taurus is not the one who ventures out into the unknown and leads the way, Taurus is the one that will follow the leader and strengthen and build upon the discovered. This perseverance is given to them by their stubborn streak. Taurus stubborn streak is what gives their independence. They like to do things their way. They are perfectly fine on being alone, this way things get done they way they want them to be done. Taurus is not a follower, but they are not the brave one either. Taurus is perfectly independent. With their perseverance, they get things done and can do quite well for themselves.

Taurus and Friendship:
A Taurus is an excellent friend. Taurus has few close friends as opposed to many acquaintances. The few people they hold dear to them are guarded and protected. Their friends are treated like family and they are fiercely loyal and dependable. Taurus loves to be the host or hostess. Although not a total social butterfly, they can be shy around strangers, the people who Taurus let into their lives are lavishly catered to when Taurus decides to throw a party, they decorate and present everything lavishly. Taurus will always pamper themselves and their close group of friends.

Taurus and Business:
Taurus is a strong business person. Taurus is the one who has immense perseverance, even when others have given up, the Taurus rages on. They have a knack for finance and their financial advice is prized. They know where money is to be made and have the ability to manipulate and set the path for their own success. Taurus are not frivolous spenders but they like to live lavishly and surround themselves with nice possessions and foods, which all adds up resulting in large spending habits. They will not spend all their money and cause their business to fail because if they do, their security and stability will be gone and this will cause them great stress.

Taurus Temperament:
Taurus are deeply sensitive, the slightest comment or negative remark will be taken personally and they can easily get offended or hurt. Their stubborn streak results in laziness. They can be very lazy when someone gives them orders or wants them to do something they do not want to do. They are not lazy when it comes to themselves.

Taurus in a Nutshell:
Taurus is the one who has immense perseverance, even when others have given up, the Taurus rages on. Solid and persistent, just like the bull, which is Taurus' well suited symbol. Taurus's have a well known reputation for being stubborn, which is not necessarily a bad thing. The stubborn streak can cause Taurus to butt heads and conflict with other strong character types. Taurus are not fond of change. They like the familiar and routine comfort of life. Taurus is easy going and not one to pick a fight but should some poor souls attempt to provoke Taurus, the wrath will be known, for they have a temper underneath the calm surface. Taurus are very responsive to their surroundings. They like decorations, color, anything that appeals to all the senses. Taurus like possessions and the Taurus home is nicely decorated with lots of things. Taurus are down to earth. They prefer comfortable and creative settings and objects. Taurus likes security, in every aspect of their lives from home, to love, to career. Taurus can be secretive, opinionated and stingy. Taurus tend to be self-indulgent and lazy, Taurus are master procrastinators of the astrology zodiac! They do however have a strong, persistent drive that comes to life when they chose, and no one would ever know that they are lazy. The secret to this is that their laziness is pushed aside when it comes to themselves.

Sex With Taurus:
They are passionate lovers. They have lots of physical stamina and this makes up for the lack of variety in the sex life.

Rogre said Pete barely worked a day in his life. Then Rogre said, "Although he did have to rough it a bit in ART SCHOOL, if you call that roughing it Rolling Eyes "

let me tell you something about Rog ... he spends a lot of time helping kids with cancer ... but it is not what you think ... Rog told Dan Rather that the bulk of the charities are for little kids with cancer, or all the adults with the cancer, but what about teens with cancer??? and sure there are treatment programs, but what about their quality of life?  you see the teen years are very important to rock and rollers like The Who, who basically stayed teenagers even when they were old, so having young people with their primetime teen time taken is very distressing to Rog ... so Rog spends a lot of time with his organization trying to provide good rock & roll entertainment for the cancer teens.
