W is for The Who —
We got a chance to see them when they had a make up show in Oakland. They had had to cancel an earlier show because Roger Daltrey got sick. Being another one of those iconic groups, I felt it was important to see them before they stop touring. We take BART over to Oakland and my husband was having such pain in his leg from a blocked artery that we had to stop every few steps to let him rest.
My daughter, Amanda, came over to visit and helped me decide on the background papers. Then I added the “extras.”
Even though this was just a couple of days before our anniversary, I forgot to take our usual concert picture so I used the owls to represent us.
It was Peter Townshend’s 71st birthday so it was a bit special.
Ringo Starr’s son, Zak Starkey, is their drummer. He did a great job.
They pretty much covered their hits and talked about the last 50 years.
So, better late than never I say. I only have two more letters to cover and then I really will have completed the challenge. I have ordered the pictures so it will be a bit, but I’m sure you don’t mind waiting 🙂
The challenge is officially over for this year but you can still click over to the main A to Z Challenge page to see what other participants have come up with for this letter.
