Knockouts from the past

14 August 2019

Band: The Who
Song: Won’t Get Fooled Again
Album: Who’s Next – Released 14 August 1971, 48 years ago today
Note 1: The single peaked at #9 in the UK / at #15 in America
Note 2: Despite the fact that frontman Roger Daltrey is a fervent Brexit fan – well,
he was never the smartest Who member – I’m sure Great-Britain is fooled again
with Boris ‘Me Myself And I’ Johnson, an English 21st Century politician who thinks
the Great British Empire still exist. Talking about a nationalistic fool!
