Daltrey and Townsend can make an album if they like, but they are not The Who, any more than Paul and Ringo are The Beatles. They should honor the contribution of their deceased mates by not pretending to be The Who anymore.

Roger and especially Pete are (in) credible enough to perform with others under any other banner than The Who. Perhaps: "Who's Left" could be the title of their next album.
I suggest a name reflecting their Who heritage - but not simply Who - like nothing's changed. It was odd after Keith died when they did that. Now...
It is true how much Pete has always done with the writing, recording - immense talent. His intial version of "Pure and Easy" exceeds the Who version by a mile and is truely one of the greatest songs ever recorded!
how 'bout "Who's Left?"ANGRY wrote:jeff lynne, whom i like, did a few solo albums, and when they didn't fly off the shelves, did his last as ELO...none of the other band mates were involved. trent reznor constanlty reinvents NIN. how many changes has billy corgan had in smashing pumkins, rumored, again, to reunite. this type of thing goes on all the time, and worse.
i just wish pete and roger would come up with something different and special, reflective of the strong partnership they had with the others...it just seems...unseemly, to go that route, especially when they are both rather talented.
maybe, considering their past motiffs included some humoresque aspects...they could title the album " Not Necessarily the Who"..that'd be something unique
