Album of the Day

Tommy, by The Who (1969): Though I don't own any Michael Jackson albums (naturally), it did so happen that this album by another musical legend with "little boy issues" was in the rotation today. In Pete Townshend's case, he was investigated by British authorities after accessing a website that sold kiddie porn. He was not prosecuted, but was "cautioned" by authorities and required to register as a sex offender for five years. Pete's explanation was that he was doing research for among other things, his autobiography. Perhaps that shouldn't come as such a shock, given that his most famous creation is a helpless boy who abused in a myriad of ways (including sexually) by the people who should be caring for him.
