I stood frozen in jaw-dropping horror in my son's living room. Daltrey and Townsend looked ridiculous. Their vocals were acceptable, and Townsend won me back a bit with his guitar work - plus I thought they arranged around the limitations of their vocal aging pretty well. But that coat. That scarf. How did the coolest guys of my generation (heh) ever think those choices weren't goofy? It was humiliating to watch them.
