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.

Trump aides are compiling candidates to replace Mark Esper if Trump decides to fire him: report
On Thursday, Politico reported that although Defense Secretary Mark Esper's job appears safe for now, aides to President Donald Trump are compiling a list of potential nominees to replace him if the president changes his mind and decides to fire him.
"An administration official and two people close to the White House say staffers in recent days have pulled together a list of possible candidates for Defense secretary if Trump does choose to fire Esper," reported Lara Seligman, Daniel Lippman, and Meridith McGraw. "At the top of that list is Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy, who was Esper’s No. 2 before taking the Army job last summer, the people said. Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), an outspoken Trump ally who has previously been considered for the position, is also in the mix, according to one of the people."
