Mike Campbell

Monday night, rock icons Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend returned to Denver with their latest incarnation of The Who and wowed the Ball Arena from start to finish on the final stretch of The Who Hits Back tour. Supported by a 42-piece orchestra, listeners got an ear full that captured the in-your-face sound that has been throttling audiences for nearly six decades.

Whether you stumble into them in online music reviews and blogs, People magazine, or even Rolling Stone, you can read the dismissals practically every day. But, thankfully, not here at Gratefulweb.com!
