See me, feel me, touch me, hear me.

Right, having caught your attention…I’ve just been watching the film of “Tommy” the rock opera by Pete Townsend, look, just google it then will you? There must be a wikipedia entry too. I can’t be bothered to hyperlink to it. So as I was saying, I was watching Tommy, and it reminded me that:-

a) Ken Russell is/was barking mad

b) Keith Moon was madder

c) That Roger Waters wasn’t the only rock megastar to have a “my daddy died in the war” syndrome

d) That Jack Nicholson turned in a natty cameo role as a Doctor

e) That the film is a pretty devastating satire on Christian religious cults

f) Elton John never ever looked cool!

…and that if you want to know what life was like in the 1970’s, this is a better indicator than “Life on Mars”. Duh, the TV series not the Bowie song.
