the night i met pete townshend

-5

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.
