In Reply to: The Who blew away the Stones in '68 at "Circus", would do same in 2000...nothing has changed. posted by Joey on June 19, 2000 at 16:50:10:
: I just voted in this weeks poll question, and man what a great topic. If you want to know the real reason why Jagger never released "Circus" until '96, it was because he knew all along that The Who were a better band that night and probably were always a better band on stage.
: Joey loves his Stones, but kneels before the stage power of the WHO, especially with Townshend going electric again. I recommend seeing the "Five Piece" WHO on their tour this year......I will be there in Denver in late August.
: "Hit Me Ronnie"
Nonsense, I've heard this stupid story for 30 years--then I saw the movie--the Stones sounded great--tight, rude, and rockin'. They sounded as good or better than I've ever heard them--check out the version of Parachute Woman...the Who were overblown, pretentious.
