It was meant to be serious, but when Roger Daltrey sang about “People try to put us d-down (talkin’ ’bout my generation)” he clearly wasn’t talking about the fans at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
In fact, Daltrey once proclaimed the lyric, “Hey you smoking mother nature / This is a bust.” Clearly, he wasn’t joking. During a Who concert, Daltrey went off about those darn kids smoking marijuana, UCR reported.
“All the ones smoking grass down in the front there, I’m totally allergic to it,” Daltrey shouted to the crowd according to a fan video uploaded to YouTube. “I’m not kidding, whoever it is down there, you fucked my night and you made me really…I’m allergic to that sh*t and my voice just goes [makes noise with voice] It sucks up. So f*ck you!”
He refrained from saying, “We’re not gonna take it,” however.
This isn’t the first time Daltrey has unleashed on fans, four years ago he threatened he’d walk off of the stage if people kept smoking marijuana.
“The smoke’s impact was almost immediate on his voice, which went from crystal clear and potent for the opening ‘I Can’t Explain’ to something rougher and more limited during ‘I Can See for Miles,’” wrote UCR in 2015.
He’s serious, he really isn’t gonna take it.

Black Georgia lawmaker accuses white man of demanding she ‘go back where she came from’ in supermarket diatribe
On Friday evening, Erica Thomas, and African-American Democratic lawmaker in the Georgia House of Representatives, was shopping at a Publix supermarket in Mableton when a white customer came up to her and shouted at her, telling her to "go back where you came from" — words echoing President Donald Trump's recent racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color.
Thomas' crime? She had too many items for the express checkout line.
Today I was verbally assaulted in the grocery store by a white man who told me I was a lazy SOB and to go back to where I came from bc I had to many items in the express lane. My husband wasn’t there to defend me because he is on Active Duty serving the country I came from USA!
Trump offers to guarantee bail for rapper A$AP Rocky
US President Donald Trump offered Saturday to guarantee the bail of rapper ASAP Rocky, detained in Sweden on suspicion of assault following a street brawl.
Trump tweeted that he had spoken with Prime Minister Stefan Lofven, who he said gave assurances that the singer would be treated fairly.
"Likewise, I assured him that A$AP was not a flight risk and offered to personally vouch for his bail, or an alternative," Trump wrote.
There is no system of bail in Sweden.
Trump said he and Lofven had agreed to speak again over the next 48 hours.
Fans, fellow artists and US Congress members have campaigned for the 30-year-old artist, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, to be freed since his arrest on July 3 following the fight on June 30.
The best Civil War movie ever made finally gets its due
On Sunday and on July 24, Turner Classic Movies and Fathom Events are presenting big-screen showings in theaters nationwide of “Glory,” in honor of the 30-year anniversary of its release. The greatest movie ever made about the American Civil War, “Glory” was the first and, with the exception of Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln,” the only film that eschewed romanticism to reveal what the war was really about.
The story is told through the eyes of one of the first regiments of African American soldiers. Almost from the time the first shots were fired at Fort Sumter, S.C., the issue of black soldiers in the Union army was hotly debated. On Jan. 1, 1863, as the country faced the third year of the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, rapidly accelerating the process of putting black men into federal blue.
