The Punk And The Godfather

Pete Townshend: "The hero goes to a rock concert. He queues up, pays his money and he decides he is going to see the stars backstage as they come out the stage door. And one of them comes up and says ‘fuck off!’ And he suddenly realizes that there’s nothing really happening in rock & roll. It’s just another cross on his list."

This song quotes from The Who’s "My Generation." On the U.S. album this was called "The Punk Meets The Godfather."
