Singer Roger Daltrey disliked this song by John Entwistle. He claimed that although it had clever lyrics, it just went on and on for too long.Eli - Philadelphia
John Entwistle had a predilection for prostitutes throughout his later career. It is creepy enough that the day he died, he was found in bed with a groupie in Las Vegas.Eli - Philadelphia
Great song!!!! The whole Who Are You album was great from start to finish.Guy - Benson, Nc
Great song. I remember when I was a teenager when this came out they would always play this song on the radio.Jim - Long Beach, Ca
When the Who played this live, John introduced it as "a guy thinks he's a good lover, so he sees a 'professional' to get an expert opinion.. he gets a hooker to tell him he's good in bed..."Neil - London, England
I thought this song was awesome...until I actually listened to the lyrics. Oh well, it's still ok I guess. haha.Pete - London, England
