I just discovered that Pete Townsend has been writing an online novel of some sort and it appears on this very same blogger thingy. What a coinkydink.
haven't read it yet.
I believe I refer to "Tommy" as one of my top ten favorite operas in an earlier post.
When I first heard it, I was in my room with my good friend Curt and a another kid I didn't particularly like, but who ran in the same circle of friends I did in Jr. and Sr. high school.
I still get chills when I hear music from "Tommy."
One time, not too long ago, at our weekly dinner at Mom's, I walked into the room that was once my bedroom where I had actually heard "Tommy" for the first time and disovered my nephew Limo listening to what ever type of portable musical listening thing he owned at the time and asked him what he was doing.
"I'm listening to 'Tommy,'" he said.
I explained to him the history of "Tommy" and that room. To which he replied, "Cool" and then put his headphones back on.
Here's Townsend's blog:
