Just finished reading Pete Townshend’s autobiography, “Who I Am”. I enjoyed many stories of his craft through the years. His penchant for smashing his guitar was inspired by the German auto-destructive artist named Gustav Metzger. He talked of following an Indian teacher named Meher Baba (the song Baba O’Riley is derived from that name). His marriage was in trouble. He discussed it with his spiritual guide who asked is there any love there. Pete said, “a little.” The guide responded, “a little is enough.” He wrote his best (and only real) love song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBRG-KI_UWk
It is my favorite song of his for many reasons. Mostly, because it is about possibilities.
