Pot at a rock gig ! ... what's the world coming to.

The problem started at the bands Nassau Colliseum show on Wednesday when Roger Daltrey smelled the smell of cannabis wafting in from the audience , Daltrey said he was allergic to the smoke and if the fan didn't stop , "the show would be over" , then Pete Townshend told the audience member they should put it in a place where the sun doesn't shine (my words not his), adding "it's the quickest way .... Ha Ha very funny.

Townshend recently said in an interview that he doesn’t enjoy playing live anymore , I'd suggest that's natures way of telling you to retire Pete.

Eh, such things are ubiquitous at virtually all music shows.. And they have been since the 60's. You would think that a band like the Who would have gotten that memo being a 60's band... And not be dicks about it. There is no way you will have a 60's band play and NOT have someone in the audience partaking in such things. Anybody who is in the art and music worlds knows that illicit substance use goes up in the art world, more than any other industry category.

And I think these guys are known to have partaken in a variety of substances in the 60's or early 70's. There is a story of I think Pete Townshend's '___' trip on a plane.

If it wasn't for drugs none of their crap would have ever sold. So they should be encouraging the audience to smoke as much as possible.

I have to agree.
When you are so old, that you are bitching about marijuana smoke, you need to retire.
Selective memory there fellow.

If he was allergic to it, he would have died a long time ago.
On a lighter note...good to see Pete doesn't have to wear an ankle bracelet anymore after getting caught with kiddie porn.
Rock on, geezers!

More like do as I say, not as as I do.

It is a caricature of the totalitarian socialist agenda of "his generation".

Roger, Roger, Rodger...tsk tsk old chap.

What a heap of hypocritical crap. I have no doubt that if he had made such protestations during their heyday, they would have put an awful lot of people's noses out of joint (did you see what I did there?).

Crap. That's the second person I've ever heard of been allergic to it.
Oh well, in a world where somebody can be allergic to water why not?

You obviously have no taste.
And these guys can do what they want. If they don't want to smell smoke, they don't have to. It's disconcerting that people have to get high to enjoy a concert anyway.

None so pious as reformed popsies, Eh Roger and Pete!

You forget there are some of us around who have seen your dreadful performances live when you lot were in your 20's and stoned off your heads. Hypocrites!

You were one of the worst bands ever to perform live, your music was hardly recognisable in fact the only thing you were memorable was for your arguing on stage. Perhaps over the years you might have practiced a bit more and I expect a lack of funds has drawn you out into the public domain again. But pious you lot never were.

I see your point and of course we must protect ourselves against the ravages of smoke inhalation. However, to think you can fool people about your infamous past is …..

I heard an interview with Courtney Taylor Taylor from the Dandy Warhols - a group we love and he made the comment during a live interview that "the music is better with drugs". Just listening to it ordinarily - as his group is played regularly in our household it great but it can sound even better er Hm…… Perhaps one should try it before launching criticism - absolutely no offence intended.

Their " crap " is a thousand times better than anything that has been produced in the last 20 years.
