Adam Sandler, Who-ligan

Always fun, isn't it, when a couple of your favourite things get happily conjoined? As Adam sings in the clip related to the image (left), everybody loves The Who (or pretty much.) Of course, not everybody loves Adam, and he doesn't always make it easy for them to change their minds. But I remain unashamedly his fan, partly because of inspired stuff like this - the curtain-raiser to some rockers hall-of-fame induction late last year. The only thing wrong with this clip is that it cuts out just as the Oo' take the stage, to the inimitable bleeping hurdy-gurdy strains of the Baba O'Riley intro. But then they've done that tune a lot, and will do it many times more before they get old...
