Why do you guys still do it? All I can say I am totally excited about the concert Friday night. Live in Carmel and my wife who is a math teacher and I are driving up to,Oakland and we will be listening to the cd on the way up. Can’t wait man.

Having witnessed Mr Daltrey’s interview on BBC this evening, I am sure that his comments about the NHS will will have brought little comfort to those awaiting or receiving treatment.

Really great work on behalf of the many people affected by Hurricane Sandy and teen cancer victims. As wonderful as Ronald McDonald House is for small children, teens feel out of place and don’t want to be babied, or at least appear to be babied. I will remember them all with my Christmas donations.

Ever since I saw your crack on TV as a child about being Roger from Oz, you were my favorite vocalist. You possessed the most masculine voice among your peers yet were capable of enormous emotional range and intelligence.

I was a tough kid who ran away from home at 15 for several months. I lived by my wits and fists on the streets thousands of miles away from my suburban home. I had need of your voice as an inspiration. I adopted it the way kids adopt a favorite football player.

As I outgrew my own toughness, gave up brawling and drinking, got an education and went to work at a grown-up job, I read that you had given up using your fists to get your way when you were frustrated and had learned to beat your sword into a ploughshare like Cincinnatus of old.

Although I still admire all of my rock star heroes (even Mr. Baker who I saw drum years and years ago one memorable night in Central Park) for reasons peculiar to each of them, their talents and publicized life stories, I admire you the most for having transumuted your wrath and allowed art to heal the artist.

You did a great Scrooge a few years back. Hope to see more of you on the stage, or on TV or in films. Along with other Who fans, I also hope to read your autobiography someday.

Enough of gushing fandom. Back to work.

Love Roger. Thank you the Who for the best concert I have ever watched. We did get hit with the storm, and I made sure I donated clothing to others.

I wish I could have attended the Concert.

You guys rock.
