A Quick One...

I was listening to a Who-themed broadcast of Little Steven's Underground Garage and thought back to one of the greatest performances of a rock song ever -- The Who performing 'A Quick One, While He's Away' as part of The Rolling Stones' Rock and Roll Circus. This performance is just brimming with the raw energy of the Who and all the rebeliousness and hair and sweat and 'fuck you, we're Brits'-ness just comes leaping off the screen. Rumor has it that the Stones were so ashamed by their own lackluster performances of the evening in comparison to The Who's one song, that they shelved the movie for nearly 30 years.
