(YouTube)   The Who's "Quadrophenia" is 40 years old today and Pearl Jam's "Vs." is 20 years old today. Luckily for you, discerning listener, they blend - and so here we have Pearl Jam nailing "Love, Reign O'er Me" and "The Real Me"   (youtube.com) divider line 33

Sounds like they sorted it out a couple minutes in.

Thanks for that, subby.

I have a bootleg somewhere of pearl jam playing Who songs.

Pretty good

Always thought that  Love, Reign O'er Me was a high water mark for The Who. I've never seen that cover, really well done. thanks Subby.
 
2013-10-19 04:34:04 PM
Quite good.  Thanks for sharing.

The bass line on The Real Me is awesome

Thanks for that! Made me happy right along with feeling old.

Dear subby,

I had never seen that before.
Thanks for making my day better.

Signed,

In other news, a whole lot of people just felt old and several more felt really old upon seeing this headline.

I was at this show, was very drunk, but not as drunk as Mila Kunis. It was still good.

bluorangefyre: In other news, a whole lot of people just felt old and several more felt really old upon seeing this headline.


To be fair. Those people are old. I count myself among them. It reminded me that the mid-70s were a special time for rock. This isn't a rant about how things are crap now. I think there is a lot of good new music. It just isn't popular and you need to dig a bit to find it. But the 70s were a special time.

Count me with the Thanks subby crowd. These young punks did a fine job. Watching the drummer did remind me that The Who ended with Moon. The combo of Moon and Entwistle provided a rare dynamic. Listen to this audio only recording of The Real Me. They led the song more than TFA version:

Thanks subby. Enjoyed that very much.

I remember seeing this. While watching it all I could think was 2 things:

1) Pearl Jam did a wonderful job

2) They wasted such a good performance on an audience that didn't really seem to care.

Pearl jam version of Reign O'er Me plays during the closing credits of the movie Reign Over Me, which is easily Adam Sandler's best film.

Probably for that alone.

The_Philosopher_King: Listen to this audio only recording of The Real Me. They led the song more than TFA version:


The Ox played lead bass.
The Loon played lead drums.
Townsend played lead guitar.
Daltrey sang lead vocals.

I can't think of any other band that had that kind of set up.  Zep came close but JPJ hid in the background too often.

True, good point. I think that is why Kenny Jones didn't cut it. He was trying to be the time keeper for a band that didn't work that way.

Zep came close, but Bonzo still was the beat keeper. The steady backbone that the others used to do their gymnastics.

The only other band that I know of that came close was Cream.

And, as a result, both Cream's and Genesis' best stuff was instrumentals unless you're talking early Genesis when Phil played lead drum, Tony played lead keys, Steve played lead guitar, Mike played lead bass and Pete sang lead vocals.  The three part Genesis certainly didn't reach those levels of virtuosity and I saw them 3 times live. Phil's drumming wasn't as out front as Moon's although his Brand-X stuff certainly showed that he had the talent.

I prefer this version, but that may just be because I was there.  I got to hear them cover Baba O'Riley this week which was equally as awesome.
 
2013-10-19 10:32:36 PM
Count me in on the, hadn't seen it, made my day, thanks Subby yada, yada.

I think Quadrophenia was their most masterful work.
 
2013-10-19 10:38:57 PM
That is about as best a cover one could hope for. Still missing: keith moon hitting 1/128th notes, john entwhisle effortessly matching him on the bass, pete townshed forced to play over his head after throwing the riff to them and having them throw it right back.

The way I've always heard it is:

Moon on keyboard
Entwistle on lead guitar
Townsend on drums

Yeah - I was thinking about both periods, actually. Just noting that it was another one of those few bands that can deal with the chaos of everybody on lead.

whither_apophis: The bass line on The Real Me is awesome

/RIP Ox


I know, right? I was a fledgling bass player in my youth, should have stuck with it.

I doubt I will ever see The Who, but I crank them in my car and howl along when they come on.

Thoroughly enjoyed this. Thanks Subby.

That was something awesome to behold.  The vocals were good, but the drums and bass were spot on.  The lead guitarist did his best Townsend impression.  Thanks for sharing

Triumph: I hate watching someone break a guitar.


Likewise.  It breaks the heart to watch a Les Paul be treated like that.

Genesis 1973-1974 King Crimson had some songs where all three of them were playing lead.


FTFY

You could say that there were times, especially in live improvs, that Fripp, Wetton, and Cross all tried to play lead.

/then there is the fragile, beautiful "Trio", where Bruford is credited with "admirable restraint"
