1967. California. Monterey Pop Festival. D.A. Pennebaker’s filming. The Mamas and the Papas and Otis Redding just ripped up the stage.

Then The Who come on…

Substitute got the job done. Summertime Blues got the grease in the gears. Then A Quick One While He’s Away. That shit must have blown the minds of all those tripped out little hippies. Fucking ay. Everytime I see The Who perform I fall more and more in love with them. Pete Townsend is perhaps the greatest rock guitarist ever. He’s more punk than Ian. You can’t argue that.
