Hi Koos,
I'm back too. I love this video. I think you know it's from the movie "The kids are alright". My kids loved the talking at the beginning. Do you know Pete is from London, London England. It's so fantastic!!!
Hope you had a good eastern.
Love and peace
Stefan

Hope your Easter was fine as well, Stefan !
Well, the TKAA dvd is my favourite, I am the happy owner of one.
And when I could buy a key ring in London, that had LONDON ENGLAND on it, I just had to have it.
So Pete's legendary words are always in my pocket ;-)

Hi Koos,
my easter was fine too. Charlotte had her birthday on saturday. Now she is 14. She got a lot of new books. Charly is a bookworm too. We stood all together with my family. First a breakfast with my parents and after this "Kaffee, Tee und Kuchen" together with the family.

Hi Koos,
I was wondering where the Zimmers got their inspiration! I love TKAA (also a proud owner) and actually remember the Smothers Brothers here on tv when I was little.

Cheers,
AM

I guess the fact that Di-rect needed this particular song to become world famous (in The Netherlands) says quite enough. The Who is an inspiration for many current day musicians.

Hi Koss,
It is funny in an historical way.
The only thing I never liked about them is the 'destruction'.

Oh and the pleasure was entirely mutual.

"My friends call me Keith but you can call me John."
Devastating...
Now and then I say softly: Londonengland. Unforgettable.
Before you were born? Means you are really young!
