Album: The Who Then And Now (1964 - 2004)Released: 2004
Pete Townshend wrote this in New York during The Who's 2002 tour. It was written in memory of bass player John Entwistle, who died on June 27, 2002. Entwistle loved red wine and often drank it past it's prime, which is where the lyrics for the song came from.
