    So where are the spiders?

  2. Dave Slusher says:

    Yeah, when the fly tried to break his balls? (or whatever he is saying there if that’s wrong.)

  3. Dave Slusher says:

    I consider the 3.5 minutes of this song to be a better treatment of this idea than the entirety of Tommy. This might be a minority opinion but it is mine.

    1. Roger Yale says:

      May I say that I have no idea what this song is about. I am not a good listener…

    2. Dave Slusher says:

      I’m talking about the broad concept of star as Christ figure, whether pinball star or rock star.

    3. I agree, Tommy was meh.

    4. Dave Slusher says:

      Some may like their narratives lean and tight, some bloated and plodding. Not my job to tell you how to live your life.

      I can say that I listen to R&F of Ziggy Stardust frequently, don’t care if I ever hear any song from Tommy again in my life.

    He was the mass, with God-given ass?

    I think he was the “nazz”, probably the same term that Todd Rundgren named his group after but I don’t know what that means.
