I might be forming a The Who cover band with this awesome drummer friend of mine who can play just like Keith Moon we're both really into the who and went through like 5 who songs when the idea hit me. I can handle the guitar parts but I want to go the whole 9 yards with this band because unlike my other band this one doesnt suck. so I want to be cool like Pete and I sometimes tend to jump off of chairs at practices but I havent really mastered the moves (I really really suck at the moves)

Does anyone have any tips for:
1.) The Windmill
2.) The Townshend split-jump (not the Roth split-jump)
3.) The power slide
4.) any other Pete-isms I may have missed

(and no I'm not smashing my guitars)

wait for people to come on stage then guitar slap them and say "get the **** off my ****ing stage" oh yea get a nose enlargement job too.
The Mitch Clem formula
1)make jokes about rancid and NOFX (as if they dont already make fun of themselves)
2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food
3)make fun of Rancid and NOFX again
4)??????
5)PROFIT (and an army of internet fanboys)

Find someone who can play bass like John Entwistle and you're good to go. Seriously, he was a good 60%-70% of the Who songs...

how much is 15,000 PHP? I didn't know they played guitar in the Phillipines. I thought they played ukelele or something.


Because, of course, we're too far away from places with guitars and all that stuff so we play ukelele...

Good point our version of My Generation is pretty week due to lack of a good bassist. Substitute too.

EDIT *weak

Those 2 lines simply can't go together. Find a crappy throw away guitar separate from the one that you'll be playing on and just smash it to bits at the end of your show(s).

He isn't afraid to hurt his hand with those guitar windmills. I saw a concert video with an upclose shot of his hand, and his thumb was very pink from hitting it against the strings so much.

I'm not afraid to abuse my strumming hand but whenever I do a windmill I like only hit one string or I'll miss completely and hit my hand on the neck my hand is always way up near the neck when I do it

[edit] Legal matters
As part of the Operation Ore investigations, Townshend was cautioned by the police in 2003 after acknowledging a credit card access in 1999 to the Landslide website alleged to advertise child pornography.[12][13] He claimed in the press and on his website to have been engaged in research for A Different Bomb (a now-abandoned book based on an anti-child pornography essay published on his website in January 2002) and his autobiography, and as part of a campaign against child pornography. The police searched his house and confiscated 14 computers and other materials and after a four-month forensic investigation confirmed that they had found no evidence of child abuse images. Consequently, the police offered a caution rather than pressing charges, issuing a statement: "After four months of investigation by officers from Scotland Yard's child protection group, it was established that Mr Townshend was not in possession of any downloaded child abuse images." In a statement issued by his solicitor [14], Townshend said, "I accept that I was wrong to access this site, and that by doing so, I broke the law, and I have accepted the caution that the police have given me." As a statutory consequence of accepting the caution, Townshend was entered on the Violent and Sex Offender Register for five years.[15] This would normally prevent travel abroad, but in Townshend's case such restrictions have been waived, making possible his numerous concert performances with and without The Who since receiving the caution.
yeah, that.
