PETE TOWNSHEND PsychoDerelict (Atlantic) The plot of Pete Townshend’s latest rock opera-in which an aging rock star, pilloried by the press and betrayed by his manager, becomes a Virtual Reality messiah-sounds like a bigger travesty than the Broadway production of Tommy. But if you can get past the ”high concept,” you’ll find some meaty songs in a Who’s Next vein. There’s life in the old geezer yet. B+ -TS
