That's me, I'm 50!
Enjoying a different anniversary are two slightly older guys, aged 70 and 69. Roger Daltrey & Pete Townsend partnered in soul by Keith Moon and John Entwhistle. Haunting to see footage and the voices of Keith and John entwined seamlessly into the music and show. Maybe a bit like one of Keith's famous trips!
For everyone there in Birmingham last week, this was a real trip - back to when Britain was Great - with Union Jacks, RAF Roundels, Routemaster buses and 60s backdrops - MOD heaven. You just needed some Vespas and Lambrettas on stage, a Parka jacket and a girl in a Biba dress. The Place was really swinging.
As Pete said, he wondered how they ever made the sound with only 4 guys in the Band. Well, they're still going and it's bloody good. See them here in the UK or go to the USA in the Spring. Sell a kidney or whatever it takes (sorry if that's a bit unethical) to get a ticket. You only live once.
