And yes, that is John Entwhistle on acoustic bass. In the mid-1990’s, I was very much into the Chieftains and Nanci Griffith but had only passing familiarity with The Who. Sad, huh? So the televised program “An Irish Evening” and the accompanying CD were staples that led to me really becoming a huge fan of the lads from Shepherd’s Bush, London.

Reading my friends’ facebook profile updates, this sounds appropriate today. Shannon and I can’t decide if the Boomtown Rats are more punk or more new wave.
