the night i met pete townshend
last night i had the good fortune of meeting one of my rock and roll heroes: pete townshend. he didn’t disappoint. he spoke to us for a couple of minutes and couldn’t have been any nicer. being the observant blogger that i am, i noticed his choice of footwear. he was rocking a pair of burgundy longwings. i would almost bet my life (the who reference) that they were color 8 cordovan alden longwings, but i wasn’t about to ask or out myself as man that checks out other men’s footwear.
the who played quadrophenia in it’s entirety. it was truly an unforgettable evening. pete f**king townshend. i still can’t believe it. big thanks to the two gentleman that hooked it up.
here’s an oldie, but goodie of pete and paul weller. i guess i side with the mods. can you blame me? they were much better dressers.
