The Rock (Pete Townshend) Fabulous Music, Ltd.

Pete Townshend: "It's getting in a boat, going out to sea and sitting on a rock waiting for the waves to knock him off that makes him review himself. He ends up with the sum total of frustrated toughness, romanticism, religion, daredevil - desperation, but a starting point for anybody."

This was only played live during the British leg of the 1973 tour and was not revived until 1996.
