Wholigan history pt2...1987

Who are you

Cry if you want 1982 (It's Hard lp)
For die hard WHO fans only, "regular" joe's won't get it.

My personal favourite to play of all time from 'this time period' , except for when we played 'naked eye',....... but CIYW is a great song and a great rendition by the band ....if you ask me.
I really enjoyed this song, although not always a crowd pleaser,
we played it because we fucking wanted to !

The Who playing 'cry if you want'

Pinball Wizard +see me/feel me etc

Boris the Spider
