I love The Who but have difficulty not linking  them with the word "desperation" a lot these days.

it would be a wee bit difficult to get Moonie on the new lp
 Zak Starkey will do just fine

nah - I like the'Oo, and Live at Leeds is one of my favourite albums, but neither Kenny Jones nor Zak Starkey come close to recreating Moon's live sound. I have a DVD of their " Farewell Tour" in the 80s and Jones is technically excellent, but he just ain't Moon. And Starkey at Hyde Park  was OK - but "Won't Get Fooled Again" was tame without Moon.

And since it can be argued that they haven't done much post Moon that constitutes classic Who music, a Leeds set list would be relying on old Who songs.

Ok - I know I'm being pedantic - biut there are some people you just can't ever replace - Moon, Bonham, Lynott.

2 albums with Kenny and 2 songs on the recent best of are the total sum of the who's original output since Kieth died
Kenny Jones just wasnt right for the who, to straight , and Simon Philips who sat in when they toured tommy with the big band
just wasnt up to it, the drumming on the join together lp is deadly
  Zak however has proved a different kettle of fish altogether and although hes just playing Moons drum parts, he comes about as close
as is humanly possible, Ginger Baker being the only other drummer wi can think of who would do the who justice, and we all no that aint gonna happen
   the whos setlist since they started touring again has been 99.9 percent classic who, they have been a nostalgia act, a good one but no more
 Moonie and the ox cant be replaced but if pete and rog want to tour who can deny them?

thank christ zep never went down the phil collins route
but Lizzy keep rearing their heads now without Brian Downey as well
