Heh. Curiosity got the better of me, and I took a gallop through YouTube looking for clips from the movie Tommy. This was just before some of you started sending clips my way, and yes, I agree, “Pinball Wizard” is zany madness that the theatre doesn’t top. I don’t think anything staged post-70s can.
I found this an interesting surprise. Roger Daltrey was (and still is) hawt. So is some of the geological scenery:
I’d climb that mountain. Day-am. Any readers here know where and what that is?
Special bonus video, for those poor souls who’ve never seen the Highlander episode “Til Death,” allow me to present Roger Daltrey as Fitzcairn:
A much longer sequence can be found here. I love the interplay between Daltrey and Adrian Paul. The two of them were magic.
The Who’s Tommy runs at Burien Little Theatre through March 25th. Yes, I know, it’s not the movie – but it’s awesome and if you’re in the Seattle area, you should go see it. No geology in the stage production, I’m afraid, but still well worth your time.
