It's a tough gig - it's all lip synced except the vocals and whatever they can shove a mic in front of after setting up the fireworks displays. For example, the Who gig was only Daltrey's mic and Pete's guitar, and I think the drums - I read that everything else was mimed.
My biggest beef was the song selection, which was basically CIS theme music but a lot of people bitched about Daltrey's voice. Turns out the dude had just gone through throat surgery to remove suspicious growths.
In a CBS TV interview at the beginning of December Daltrey revealed his voice wasn't "performing in a normal way" and friends put him in touch with master throat surgeon Steven Zeitel in Massachusetts in late 2009.
Daltrey says, "It was becoming hard work to sing... He (Zeitel) saw me and told me that he didn't like what he saw."
One week before Christmas in 2009, Daltrey went under the knife, according to RollingStone.com.
The rocker adds, "He took off what he could from the problem area on my vocal cord. He said it wasn't cancer, but it was pre-cancerous, and you have to keep an eye on it.
"(Now) I see him every time after I finish a tour and he swears that he'll keep me singing into my 80s. That might upset some people, but it keeps me happy."
So cut the Rog some slack and just bitch about Pete's bogus hat!
