My Interests I like classic rock - rock coming from the '60s, '70s, etc. The Who, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and Eric Clapton being my favorites. I also don't mind Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, and Led Zeppelin, as well as countless others.

Some music links - surf at your own risk:

The Who The Who is where it's at, period. I always liked Behind Blue Eyes, Won't Get Fooled Again, Who Are You, etc, but didn't get obsessive until 1995 or so. Since then I have worked on building my collection, getting new CDs as they come out, as well as picking up old out of print ones. I was fortunate enough to see the Who July 23, 1997 at the Marcus Ampitheater in Milwaukee - great show!

Probably the best concert bootleg I have ever heard has to be Live At Leeds Complete. As the title infers, it is a 2 CD set of the entire February 14, 1970 Leeds University show. All the songs are there, including all of Tommy, and there are no edits within the songs. The sound quality is (as the cover states) stereo soundboard, which is as good or better than the original Live At Leeds LP/CD. I have written an essay to comparing the remastered CD to this bootleg version. Take a look!

There are currently a few very good places to find Who information on the Web. The first is the Hypertext Who. This site has a fairly complete discography, along with lyrics to almost all Who songs. There is also information on the band and its individual members. Chris's Who Links has just about every Who link on the 'net listed. Odds & Sods is home to the Odds & Sods mailing list. Also be sure to take a look at Baba O'Riley's Bootleg Page, a listing of many popular boots.

The Stones Another one of my favorites has to be The Rolling Stones. I especially like their early (London/Decca/ABKCO) material. The only problem is, most of the CDs here in the US are pretty bad, and while better versions were available overseas in the past, they are out of print almost everywhere. Luckily I've been able to amass a fair amount of good sounding stuff. For my own sanity, as well as the interests of anyone else, I've done a bit of research and compiled a list of early tracks that have shown up in stereo (just about everything was released in mono only in the '60s).
