:The Who were a better band that night and probably were always a better band on stage.
C'mon Joey, this is craziness. I've seen the Who twice (in 89 and last October at the Bridge Benefit), and they were good to great. I also felt that they were really awesome on the Circus. However, after seeing the Stones 12 times since that first Who show, to say that they would blow them away these days is outlandish. Nothing compares to Mick running all over the place and doing his thing, especially not R. Daltrey and his swinging mic routine. Even as far back as 73, the Stones were clearly the better live performers as the Who was dragged down by their refusal to add musicians and instead go with backing tapes that didn't work technically or aesthetically, IMO. Peace,
