The Kids Are Alright -- They're Just Fighting
Apparently, Pete Townsend and Roger Daltrey are bickering while on the road. What else is new? Pete had arranged for live webcasts of their show in Europe, with proceeds going to various charities. But he never bothered to tell Roger about it -- they were too busy recording, he insists. Pete had paid to arrange the whole thing and his girlfriend was running the website. Roger objected -- perhaps because it was a total surprise but Pete insists it's because Roger doesn't "get" the Internet. My favorite part of this bickering is the fact that Pete set up a Hotmail account so fans could complain to Roger about the cancelled webcasts. I'm sure that helped settle things down immensely.
