Sally Take My Hand

You all know the song Baba O’Riley.

In case you need a refresher, check out this post over at Star Maker Machine. Much like that guy over at SMM, The Who were the first musical group that really grabbed me by the shirt collar and said "music is important!" (Hank was the artist who put the twang into the mix for me, but that’s another story.)

So, as a little tribute to Pete and The Who, here is a great demo of a song called Teenage Wasteland. It’s pretty much just a slowed down version of Baba O’Riley, but Who fanatics insist that it’s a different song. It was originally intended to be a companion piece to Baba O’Riley on the abandoned Lifehouse project.

Anyway, enough of my yakking. Please enjoy this really cool Pete Townshend demo:

Pete Townshend – Teenage Wasteland (buy album).

I never knew that there was this song actually called "Teenage Wasteland". That's what all the dudes called "Baba O'Riley" when we were young. Pretty funny.
