@howard I was very lucky to have seen the Who in concert back in 1973 at the Spectrum in Philadelphia when they performed their “Quadrophenia” album.
Our lead guitarist practically camped out overnight waiting in line to get tickets for us, but we were pretty far from the stage. I recall Townsend was wearing a white jumpsuit, though.
There were literally tractor trailer loads of amplifiers, gear, and speaker cabinets being set up! Each corner of the Spectrum had a small mountain of cabinets piled up in it, and when they played “I am the Sea”, you could hear the “ocean” roar back and forth in stereo across the entire building . . . it was an experience I will never forget.
One of my personal goals is to play Entwhistle’s famous bassline in “The Real Me”, and I’ve got the beginning part completed so far.
Wish me luck
All best, Joe
