Substitute, Moon for Phillips
25 February 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While Simon Phillips isn't the perfect substitute for Keith Moon, at least he isn't as bad as some other drummers I know of. This is a concert that isn't in the best spirits of The Who, one of my favorite groups ever, but it isn't a waste of time to see either. Here, Vocalist (yes, I stand corrected, vocalist) Roger Daltrey, Guitarrist (right this time) Pete Townshend and bassist John Entwhistle return in a concert to perform the classic Tommy with special guests- Billy Idol, Elton John, Patti LaBelle, Steve Winwood and in a surprisingly good cameo, Phil Collins as Uncle Ernie (though no one beats Moon in that role). Sometimes a little unbearable, however it is never a bad show with the Who, and this is no exception (despite that if they went on tour again today, they would disprove the notion of 'hoping to die before getting old' cause it's too late). B+
