Before I quote the whole album in What Are You Listening To and Random Lyrics... every (worthy) youngster should have a copy of Quadrophenia :rockon:

For all older people it's optional.

I lost my LP many years ago...

Simply because we "older people" have been there, done that? Right?

I knew that, he's been since he was quite young, he must've had it from one of his parents :P

he doesn't openly talk about it though, so at least he isn't as preachy as others *cough**cough*

Of course :cool:

It's the perfect album for when grown-ups and your everyday life suck and things with your girlfriend/love interest seem hopeless or you're just p'ed off with the world in general. Dunno how often that happens to "you older people", but since it's written from a younger guy's perspective anyway, it's more useful for younger people...

You may still listen for the music though. :cool: :P
