    Wow! What an awesome show! I took my wife – it was her third Who show, my 25th or so, and was completely touched and a little embarrassed. I fucking cried through most of Quad. It was like a review of my life to this point and many of the bad times from my youth when I used to escape with some headphones and my Quad album/CD. My wife looked at me about 3 songs in and wanted to know what was wrong. Told her I would explain later. I told her it was like when people cry at an opera.

    Anyhow, if you are like me and Quad holds a special place in your soul, beware. Best Who show I’ve ever seen.

    Brian, so did I brother. The people all around me were doing the same. I had never seen such an impassioned audience at any concert. And I had seen them before. But nothing like this night. When I wasn’t crying, I was hitting the guy next to me in the shoulder with excitement and he was hitting me back. Too bad for the guy I was with. He was so busy taking photos that he forgot what we were there for-the music. That music soars, it bangs, it moves, it dances.

    Quadraphenia defined my life. It was the only body of work that completely reflected my thoughts, my angst, my anger, my hope, my love….when I became pregnant with my son, it was that album I listened to. Nineteen years later when I lost him, it was to that album I turned for words to bury him with. December 5th in New York City bought the passion of a lifetime full circle when I saw the Who at Madison Square Garden. It was one of the most thrilling moments of my life. Thank you Pete and Roger. thank you for all you gave that night and all of my life.
