Tarantino and The Who

I've heard Tarantino hates The Who.
Anyone knows if this is true?

Playboy: You make quintessential guy movies. Do you have an secret nonguy hobbies?

Tarantino: It's more a matter of guy things that I don't do. I don't hang around pool halls. I don't play poker. And I don't go to sporting events. To me, torture would be watching sports on television. If I go to Dodger Stadium, that's ok, because the game is secondary to the beer and the environment. One thing I don't understand is that average American movie-goers cannot watch a movie for three hours, yet they'll watch a stupid, boring, horrific football game for four hours. Now, that is boredom at its most colossal. I have a lot of little theories, and one of them is that nobody really likes sports. But men feel they should like sports, so they act as if they do. I also feel that way about the Who. I don't think anybody really likes that band. Everyone thinks they're supposed to like the Who, so they just pretend. They're afraid to say that the emperor has no clothes.

The Who's a great band. But I don't care if QT likes them or not.

I must agree, I can't stand to watch sports. If I was given a gun and television that only received Football games and was locked in a closet, I wouldn't last long.

I sorta-kinda agree with The Who. Big hit-or-miss band that missed a lot more than they hit, but when they hit they were great.

QT can be an arrogant asshole sometimes. Dissing people just because they have different tastes than him. He needs to grow up.

P.S. Meanwhile he directed a TV episode with a Who song as its main theme haha.

But you have to remember that being that way is what makes QT what he is.

I didn't even think of that. Yes! So he's contradicting himself. Well he can't do anything against CSI's title theme (which rocks major ass!), but maybe he just went outside during the sound editing :-)

I don't know why anyone gives a fuck what group Tarantino likes or doesn't like; either way, he's still Tarantino. Frankly, I think people take what he says way too seriously. But hey, to each their own...

Yeah we don't care in fact if QT loves or not The Who. It's one of the best rock band ever (but this isn't a punk band ! Be careful). And QT contradicts himself, in a way he doesn't want to love them, and in the other, he uses one their song. So this isn't really important if he loves them or not.

I seem to think Tarantino speaks in the mood. he might say something when he's in one mood and be like, "I just felt like saying it." the next day. Without holding some of his statements til the bitter end. Sure he'll make a quote where he'll die before he changes it, he's arrogant. Then he may make a whatever comes to mind response to use just as an example. Like the Who think.

Which i do believe. I'm a Who fan. Not massive. Not even warm. I like some of their songs. Some are great anthems. "My Generation" for one. Townsend was great breaking his guitar apart and setting it on fire. But there were more misses than hits.

Overall. I don't take everything the man says as law. He's just a guy who is incredibly talented and richer than I'll ever be in my lifetime.

What a well-rounded response.

Awwwwwwww. It is no punk, like cyber-lilli already mentioned. At first they were Mods, they played music for Mods. Their music was Mod. Then they became Rock-Legends. (The question is if it is really Rock what they're doin', cause Mods always fought against Rockers :) ) How can a band be Punk making music before 1977? ;)

Hmm. Calm down there mate. Ever heard of the Ramones? Their first single came out in '75. Even then the origins of punk date back to the '60's. Velvet Underground and then the whole Post New-Wave "British Invasion period" after '75. Even before that there was the Psycadelic era of '65-'68 which was about getting drunk and partying with random psyc moments. There was also Television in '77 aswell, you don't get more Punk than Tom Verlaine. The Stooges first album came out in '69, as did MC-5's. So yeah, the Sex Pistols weren't the first punk band. Far From it. ;)

Yeah, ok you're right. You can't draw real clear lines. If it is 75,76 or 77 doesn't really matter. But the fact that THE punk started '77 is right, isn't it? Please don't ask me what THE real punk is, but i always referred 77 to punkrock. I am not very interested in this hole punk stuff so you could maybe teach a little bit ;) But to call this psychadelic era in the sixties punk is in my opinions wrong too.

Edit: And when you say origins go back to the 60s, I mean hey, it is everywhere th same.

Hmm. That's debatable as you can see. If you mean the term "Punk" I really don't know where that came from. The B-side of the Ramones first single (before Blitzkreig Pop) was called Judy is a Punk. But then again it is down to opinion.

That's the general point I was trying to make.

All I'm trying to say is that the Sex Pistols weren't the first. Ever heard "My Generation" by The Who? Well I think that was the first mainstream Punk Song('65). Think about it, it's about being young, ignoring the old and living your own life.

Also remember that around the time of the Pistols there were hundreds of bands playing in England with the same ideas (or anti-ideas..geddit?) dress style, attitude. Even in America aswell (minus the whole anti-monarchy thing the Pistols had goin on) with bands such as The Ramones, Stooges, Rocket From the Tombs, MC-5, Television, The Dead Boys, Iggy, Blondie, Talking Heads. (Yes, these can all be considered)

But yeah, Punk is a vague as emo or grunge. Remember though, the punk you're talking about only lasted to the mid '80's. After that there were so many branches... New Wave, Neo Wave, No-Wave, Grunge, Post Punk etc... You get the picture
