  Post Moon Era article and Signed Items
  As a way to honour the band on their 50th anniversary, Finest Sports Collectibles has attained a one-of-a-kind signed display. It features the later Who members after Keith Moon's death, and has authenticated signatures from each member. The best way to show that the re-imagined band after Moon's death still played a huge part in rock music is an article documenting all the changes and accomplishments the Who and its members experienced in the post-Moon era.

  Petition - Bring Back PETETOWNSHEND.COM
  In 2000, Pete Townshend launched a free personal website PETETOWNSHEND.COM, which was run out of Pete's Eel Pie Publishing office until 2006. During those years the site developed into one of the best artist websites on the internet, with a wide variety of content from Pete's personal archives which included daily diary entries, news, photos, video streams, media downloads, and biographical information.

Fans adored the site, and felt a very close connection to him through the work he did on it. On the last day of the 2007 tour, Pete left a final comment on his blog, shortly before closing it down. He told his fans that he planned on redesigning and relaunching PETETOWNSHEND.COM soon. Now Maria Niku designed a petition to let Pete know that his fans would very much like to see this happen!
