i wasn't going to, but this prompted me to chime in- i also caught the
who at that show in oakland with the grateful dead (which we all thought
a rather odd bill at the time). pardon me if i don't remember much more
than pete's trademark windmills and a really stellar rendition of st.
stephen by garcia et al (it was the '70's mind you)...
a small side note: there's quite a nice letter to the editor of tape op
in the last issue by mr. townshend himself, lauding the merits of that
particular enterprise. nice to see pete's reading good stuff...
