The Acid Queen

Pete Townshend on "The Acid Queen": "The Acid Queen" is the woman who is possibly going to shock Tommy out of his state through this...orgasmic glory. What the Walkers don't know is that this woman is not just a prostitute, but she's also into psychedelic drugs.

The song is about the one thing that is bigger than everything, or so we sometimes think, and that's sex. Sex and drugs...these things are fixes. The idea that we have to fix ourselves...the response to that shouldbe, "Why would we want to?", but somehow we are brought up thinking we MUST fix ourselves. "Acid Queen" needs to have that female conviction. You know, like, "I AM going to get you!" It is a big song.
