The Who: The Kids Are Alright Reviews
Pete's powerslide is THE greatest moment in the history of rock. The second best is Keith Moon banging his wet drums in "The Rolling Stones Rock N' Roll Circus" performance of A Quick One While He's Away.
I hadn't seen this documentary for ages, and now there is a dvd that comes with a fair bit of additional footage, the best part for me being a couple of songs with only the late John Entwistle's amazing bass, with the rest of the sound removed. Pretty amazing.
If one wants to be critical, the film is short on interviews and heavy on concert footage, but that suits me fine. The bonus disc also features a good interview with Roger, so that may help strike a better balance as a documentary.
Overall, time well spent.
And while I do like it, the idea the producers forced Pete to do the last two perfs (Won't Get Fooled Again and Baba O'Reily) live and these are the two Pete credits pushing his hearing loss to it's worst state, frankly blows.
Long Live Rock.
