together group, are you not?

Well, not together.

What strains that you have suffered

together, if at all?

Seems it's just beginning.

It's such a long story.

Should I start...

Start at the beginning.

We started off as...

I must admit that the fantastic

thing about The Who

is that we are all incredibly nasty.

You are or were?

Were. I mean, we still were.

His feet are nasty as well.


Don't mind me.

"Pete, Pete. Sorry. He missed it.

Smash another one.

I'll give you the money."

And as soon as I started...



smashing something up,

Keith, who is a great joiner-inner,

used to smash up his drum kit.

Well, I suppose all his friends

I've told you about all

the mad things he's done in life,
