Exercise for another show: play fifty songs where each song is about the official state drink of the state.

"The Who had 10 minutes left to fill on the LP. Kit Lambert, The Who's manager, suggested to Pete Townshend that he write "something linear... perhaps a 10 minute song." Townshend responded by saying that rock songs are '2:50 by tradition!' Lambert then told Townshend that he should write a 10-minute story comprised of 2:50 songs." [from the internet]

Rock n Roll Circus is AMAZING, especially the Who's performance.

@steveo if memory serves the Rolling Stones held up the release of RNR Circus because the Who upstaged them! Who knows!
