TOMMY & Transformations Of My Mythological Youth

The writing of an auto-biographical account of rock-opera proportions.

In the 80's I wrote a semi-biographical account that I titled T.O.M.M.Y - Transformations of My Mythological Youth" that included a center
stage reference to the WHO's Rock Opera TOMMY. I am still interested
in possibly publishing (probably requires rewriting) this paper. Just
today I realized that I need to read Pete Townsend's biography and
then revisit TOMMY in light of that. More on this as I can get to it.

"Townshend swiftly absorbed all of Baba's writings that he could find;
by April 1968, he announced himself Baba's disciple. At about this
time, Townshend, who had been searching the past two years for a
basis for a rock opera, created a story inspired by the teachings of
Baba and other writings and expressing the enlightenment he believed that he had received from them, which ultimately became Tommy. Tommy did more than revitalise The Who's career (which was
moderately successful at this point but had reached a plateau); it
also marked a renewal of Townshend's songwriting and his spiritual studies infused most of his work from Tommy forward, including the unfinished Who project Lifehouse. The Who song "Baba O'Riley",
written for Lifehouse and eventually appearing on the album Who's
Next, was named for Meher Baba and minimalist composer Terry
Riley. His newfound passion was not shared by his bandmates,
whose attitude was tolerant, but who were unwilling to become the spokesmen for a particular religion.":


November 15th -
Just posted the next paragraph (to Alan) at The site in reply
to Alan's comment about the recent release of the deluxe edition of
"Sensation - The Story of The Who's Tommy" (I just got to the Who's
site late Thursday night on the 14th yet this morning I had the Who's "I'm a sensation" playing in my head before knowing anything at all about this forthcoming release! ! Am I tuned in or what! ; - )

Thank you Alan!
I agree about the gift of Tommy! There is something about Tommy that distinguishes it most uniquely and in ways that I have yet to fully articulate and yet which became a most remarkable mutative part of
my life! I started writing a paper on this in the 80's and I continually
get additional insights into the archetypal depths in Tommy (that as
far as I know have never been made "accessible" before). I am one
most grateful "mutation" who actually gained the courage to literally smash my own mirror/s and do whatever it took to free myself from
the deafening, dumbing-down and blinding bondage of social conditioning that I now know begins at birth when we enter this world.

In Freedom!
