“This is my ticket for The Who show at King’s Hall Belle Vue Manchester in October 1975 which I sellotaped to the cover of my “The Who by Numbers” album cover.
This was Keith Moon’s last full UK tour with the band and worth ‘wagging’ time off school to queue up and buy tickets just to witness the master stage performer Pete Townsend do his guitar hero routine. At that time he was the ultimate, coolest onstage guitar player and it left a big impression on me in terms of commitment to stage performing. I may have also been a bit influenced on my ‘trademark’ stage move too...hahaha...
I was also fortunate to play some gigs with The Cult supporting The Who a few years ago, which was great too.”
