Nice one Simon - that is grooooooovy dancing (you dance like me actually!) . . . Looking forward to the album popping through the letterbox anyday now and BRIGHTON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!SteveH

I love the video, It is a real shame you guys can't relax and have some fun. HA HA HA!

"The Simonator" has new meaning...

How funny, how sweeeeet, how happy, oh joy!(and I'm glad no one went swimming. Green pools = blechy blech blech.)I'm a better dancer (by the way).thank you-g+bb
Or I should say I'm a better crap dancer! ;-)Really the song/vid made me smile.
Simon,You're not a bad dancer at all, really. Those hips were doing some serious swivelling.Funny video. I was hoping to see some diving, or at least some twisting by the pool.Cheers,AM
Watching that video is really making me look forward to that CD! Can't wait to find that baby in my mailbox!
Hahahaha! It's brilliant. Can't get more cheerful than that. Actually it reminded me of my nephew who is 1 and a half years old :-)Btw, just discovered that the Cashbah Club gig from the Who convention has been made available as pay-per-download DVD on longliverock. Really great! Serves as a fantastic introduction to what to expect of your support slot at Bristol and Hyde Park!Maria
Si ~ I couldn't resist! You are up at my place. Come by and see me.Love ya ;)
Whu...HEY! Way to get your thrust on, Si. Nice work! Just what the doctor ordered...

Hey Simon! Just watche d the PPV at Leeds! So excited I am!!! Must be a great feeling to have people screaming for joy as you walk out and not even play a note yet! Can't wait till you are in the US so I can scream for joy at you in person instead of at my computer.
Hahaha! That was amazing!Great job on In The Attic, today.. I loved the new song! Good luck tonight, as well! Break a.. string..? Well, don't really. :P-L-
Si,they should play that on Attic mate. Stephani loved it. As did all the ladies. Great one today, I put Soul Searching up on Attic Radio, sounded fab.Have fun.
Great idea Gary!How about it Simon, will you play this on ITA? Your dancing is great!I'm sorry to say that I missed the broadcast of Leeds. :(I had to help my friend today, so I was away from my computer.
Hi Simon,Thanks for all the wonderful shows!!!!
Hi Si,Great show on Saturday and good to see you afterwards - pity there was no room for CC but I think you'd habve beenwell knackered if you had done another set.Mr McNabb is really up for doing something with you on ITA - give me a shout it would be greatSee youin SouthamptonPaulB
Brighton!!Missed Casbah Club completely due to that bloody traffic - 6 hours from London!!!!!!!!!!! I was sitting in the car feeling absolutely gutted.Anyhow, arrived at the venue at 8:15 and went straight through the VIP (thanks to the passes Rachel sent me) - up to the 3rd floor in the lift Simon just as you were exiting a room marked wardrobe I think - I was just behind you and gonna say hi but you disappeared before I had the chance - damn!!! Anyway, had a great evening and roll on Hyde park then Beaulieu!!!!!!!!!SteveH

GO SIMONGO SIMONGO...you understand.Sully
OMG you have me in stitches watching this!!! Bravo....where's the encore? HYSTERICAL!
Si,FAB video, you had me in stitches! May I just say, you are absolutely adorable in it! Now...I hope you will be entertaining us with your dance techniques when you guys open up for the Who! ;-)Ann
That was funny. It made me laugh. It made me laugh real hard.HA!- JB
Good one! It made me giggle. You're a fabulous dancer and you look so happy.More homemade vids!!!:)(So I guess the song is really tongue in cheek, eh? I get it now!Jeepers am I slow!).

Simon,So your brother has a worse hat than you...But that's no excuse for your hat!!!:pJack
Hey Simon..Just heard on ITA, Bruce Watson left the band.. Pity, I guess it was finances?You'll get another player.. They're out there.
Hi SimonMy copy of your album arrived and it's bloody brilliant!!!!!!! Well done you guys!!!!!!!!SteveHp.s. Please give me a shout at Beaulieu if you can - I'm in the 6th row I think
Bruce left - no!!! Sorry to hear that.Simon, I've a brilliant rhythm guitarist so I'd be perfectly happy to help you out . . . . . just give me a call
Sorry to hear about Bruce ;(I haven't been able to catch the last two shows, we were on vacation and no computers allowed. I hope to catch the show....later!Good luck Si, I truly hope you get everything sorted out.Peace-Sue

I am so excited!Everyone, please go on my blog to arrange pre-gig drinks! Also....We would be more than happy, ecstatic I should say if you could join us on Monday 10th of July at Earl's Court's greek restaurant As Greek As It Gets, for greek souvlakia dinner!

I was so happy to get to see you play at Hyde Park yesterday! You boys are sounding great. See you in the US! ♥
Hello to the legendary Si,Check out my blog for an indepth look at the streets(and sheets) you make music for.-Justine
Hi Simon,Just wanted to thank you for the fantastic set Hyde Park which I was lucky to catch (cosily in the shadow of the 2nd stage tent). Rumours of Casbah Club's fantastic live fitness are definitely not exaggerated.Maria
Hi Si! Casbah Club was AMAZING today on the webcast. I am watching a re-run of it now as I get ready to go out. Thanks for the treat of being there with you enjoying the good tunes!Hope you are enjoying the tour!XX-Molly
Simon,WOW!! I thought the Casbah Club were great today. Excellent performance. Thanks to those that made it happen!!I am looking forward to more of the same.Good luck with the rest of the tour.-Bill
Hi Si, It was great to see CC at Hyde Park... really cool that the tent filled up to maximum capacity! The three of you sounded REALLY great!! I was wondering why you guys weren't on the main stage as you were 10 times better than what I saw up there on my way in. What a treat for the broadcast today!Best to yer.
Hi Simon, just before you played Sex Change at Beaulieu some gobby so and so shouted out 'Go on Si'. You looked across to see who it was. It was me! You and the guys really rock. Saw you at Southend and you get better each time. Hope to catch you again soon. Mark
Throw us a bone hot stuff.-Justine
SimonYou've not blogged for a while - what are you, out every night or something?? :)Have to say, saw Casbah at Hyde oark (stripy shirt, front row) and Beaulieu (checked shirt second row)!! You were just so brillian and I truly haven't stopped playing the album since it arrived. Please please, when the tour with the Who is finished just play loads of UK gigs so I can come and see more.Have a look on my blog - got loads of great pics of you and Bruce.See you roundSteveH
Hi Simon it's Paul Haggarty(from Glasgow)here,I'd like to start by saying a HUGE thankyou for putting me and my girlfreind on the guestlist for the T in the park show it was fantastic.We were backstage several times hoping to see you and thank you in person but although we spoke to just about everyone else you were not about whenever we were.I really enjoyed speaking with you at the aftershow at Bristol you're a genuinely nice guy,enjoy the rest of the tour and take care.Paul.p.s Simon I'm an experienced guitarist and could easily replace Bruce,seriously if you're looking give me a chance you'll not be disapointed.
Hola Simon!!!I just wanted to tell you that I really enjoyed the shows in Liverpool....Your music is wonderful!!! I was shouting and singing loud from the right hand side, yeahhhhh!!!!Really loved it, thanks a lot!!Love,ElenaXXXXXX
Alright Simon! The dates were announced and we have got tickets to see you in Philly and Boston! I can't wait!!
Mr. Simon Townshend!!!!Loved your performance of "The Girl in NY" on ITA---Brings tears to my eyes everytime I hear you play it. Thank youWe are traveling from Dallas to Chicago to see The Who this fall! Can't wait! Hope you are enjoying this as much as we areTake careBelinda
That video is hilarious! I can't stop laughing! I love your dancing. HAHAYou know, "Anyway She Moves" sounds a bit like "Start!" by The Jam...
Oh YEAH... I knew that I knew the bass line from somewhere. Nicely done high number!
Let's not forget that Start! sounded alot like Taxman :)
Simon explained a long time back on ITA that Start! was an homage to Taxman...and CC do "sample" Start! as well as Big Country's "In a Big Country" since Mark B was in BC and Bruce of course was in The Jam. Thank you, Dr. Stupid!Hee hee that's what my husband and I always say to anyone who lectures us. (Including ourselves).:)Long live Ren and Stimpy.Oh hi Simon!Are you OK? I didn't quite catch what happened to you in Locarno...do tell us! You were standing in water? Sounds a little hazardous.Glad you're ok. Guess you need a new amp too??Hope you are well!Take care,Sue D.
Hi simon..I saw you..the 14 of july I went to The Who concert at Locarno!It was very good, and the casbah club was cool and very good!!!!I love we!!simon..thank you for anychoose!p.s. sorry, but I don't speak english very well, because an italian girl and I'm 14 years.sorry again, for my error!I will be back!P.s. you're very beautiful, and good, and you dance very wellkissesmillymoonxxx

Simon,I went onto CC web site to find out what US shows you are opening, but it doesn't say. Are CC opening all the Who shows is the US?
Hi everyone - I've just been reading thru all the messages.... so great! Thanks for taking the time to let me know your thoughts. I would usually answer every question but right now I hve a back up of emails to deal with amongst other things - been away from home for a few weeks and it piles up. Please keep on keeping on and sooner or later I'll get inspired to update the page and be a good boy and respond to the questrions, etc...Love you all! Si
Simon,Can you please dress up as a matador and take some photos while you are in Spain?Toro?xMandy
Geesh you act like you've been on tour gig'in it with two bands! What the hell?!, kind of lax don't you think Mr. Townshend?! :0)How about a story about the funniest thing that happened on the tour to date or tell us about the best show CC had. Or explain what at the water was about in Lorcano... when the pedals went out etc?
A voice rises over the din from the peanut gallery:"We love you Simon!!!"*squeels, jumps up and down, flashes tits, screams some more, (ignores comments from man in row in front of her), faints*(That's the appropriate behaviour, isn't it?)Jack
Hey, Mr., You're still doing the "crap dance", I see!Ah, I am not here to make you feel bad about not posting. You are doing more than your share....Can't wait to see you over here.I just wanted to let you know, your fans are still here, and waiting to "rock out"..........Stay well!-Sue
Just now I pull up to the drive-in window at Starbucks and ask for my usual Iced Green Tea Latte and the very good looking young man at the window asks me with a sweet smile, what are you listening to? (It happened to be raised from simontownshendis)I say enthusiasticaly, Yea! That's Simon Townshend, I reach for my Casbah Club Vensustraphobia CD and show him the front and back as I tell him this is the new band he's with and give the the history of each member. He keeps smiling, cute as a bug in a rug... although looking like he has no idea who Big Country and The Jam were. He still looks thrilled so I continue to reach for simontownshendis and say this one was from a few years back, its got 18 tracks and can be purchased on Simon's site. He gestures to borrow it for a moment and writes down the title.Who knows, this one very cool boy may be one start into a whole new exposure of the Amercian market!This is just one story! Bet there are quite a few more stories a buzzin. Hope you guys all make it to the states! We're gonna love ya here.
Nice one Alecia!Actually, Simon, I'm trying to convince my man to play the EP at work... (He's at HMV.) He says that's not fair cause people can't buy it from them and it'd just cause him a lot of agro. (He does the special ordering.)Sooo... Please post as SOON as you choose a label to release it on! Not only will I have him order a zillion copies for his store, I'll have him play it 24/7. :DJack
"Just now I pull up to the drive-in window at Starbucks...."WOW Alecia!! You are WAY more talented than I thought.... Pulling in at the drive thru and posting a blog comment SIMULTANEOUSLY!!!! You just impress me more every day girl... :)K x
Oh Kris - you know what I mean!Good idea Jack! Casbah Clubers and Cadets reporting for duty!
Simon - we miss you! Post soon, you must have some great stories to tell.More importantly - get Casbah Club on the road ASAP!!!!!!!!!SteveH
Hi Si,It's been awhile. I 'm really digging the Casbah Club videos.....great stuff! Looking forward to seeing you in NYC in September.xoxoGigi
Simon I don't know if are checking your blog or not but I wanted you to know that I got my copy of Venustraphobia. When I got it I didn't open it right away, lots of shit going on. Anyway, when I get a new CD I like to saturate myself in it so I have been listening to it in my car, trust me I drive ALOT! I love it so much. My two youngest daughters make me play Anyway She Moves over and over again (good thing I like it) and they do their own seated version of the "crap dance" in the backseat. I try to watch them in the rear view mirror and drive at the same time!! Yikes! Anyway, I just wanted to tell you how much I love the CD and I can't wait to see the Casbah Club in the fall!!!
Heh! Who says white boys can't dance? Well done, Simon!
Simon said, "This is funny!"It certainly is!latecomer to the site, I know.. (my friend Lin pointed me here... more or less...)You look like a nice guy. I love your unabashed, unbridled, natural silliness!Hope to meet you and your bro' one day... :-)p.s. LOVE the song.

I am not boring but I did give up drinking in '97 and smoking last April. I still find loads of interesting things to do with my time, infact more than ever.
