Honoring the WHO?

VH 1 Rock Honors honored the Who this year. Who did they have play? Foo Fighters (solid band live) sucked on "Bargain" because they had some douche from Supergrass sing it, Incubus (hit or miss in my book), and Eddie and the Jammers. Now I would recommend if you are going to honor a band not to have a band that will A) blow the doors off the other bands. and B) Not totally own the songs of the band you are honoring.

Eddie and the boys blew the doors of "Love Reign O'er Me" and did a nice version of "Real Me". I've always liked The Who's version of "Love Reign.." but Eddie just was made to sing that song he totally was making the song and roger waters his bitch on it. Just check it out:

Now that is How you Do It! The Who must have been pissing themselves having to follow that nastiness. I guess they needed Tenacious D to calm The Who down. Who would be a little tense after someone just demolished their thunder like Eddie and the Jammers did. They are lucky Eddie didn't get a couple bottles more of wine in him and decide to do a "Baba O'Reily" medley. In my opinion Roger Waters totally sucked a d on his version at his own VH1 Rock Honors Show. It was probably the fear of never being as good at his own songs as Eddie is. Honestly WHO can blame him.
