After the band received sub-par reviews for their performance at the Super Bowl, guitarist [lastfm]Pete Townshend[/lastfm] claimed his ongoing battle with the ear condition tinnitus may sideline him forever.

But when Daltrey was recently asked by the Tuscon Concerts Examiner if he and Townshend plan to continue rocking, he replied, “As far as we’re both concerned.” According to the singer, the Who’s music deserves the chance to live on and he’s more than willing to bring it to life.

“I’ve got to keep singing our songs. No one really plays our music. It’s a shame. I can’t pick a favorite. There are so many. Where would you start? ‘Behind Blue Eyes?’ ‘Who Are You?’ he says.

Though the band admits being disappointed in their Super Bowl show, Townshend says he did like the idea of a medley. For their twelve-minute time slot during the big game, the band played portions of “Pinball Wizard,” “Baba O’Riley,” “Who Are You?,” “See Me, Feel Me,” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again.”
