THE WHO - and LIVE AT HULL?????

Spent the day at the lovely British Grove studios in Chiswick with Pete Townshend and a host of performers preparing for The WHO at 50 - their gig at the Shepherds Bush Empire. Had a long chat with Roger Daltrey about why he works so hard for the Teenage Cancer Trust (the charity is benefitting from the concert) and of course we talked about how a band who sang "hope I die before I get old" made it to 50. But the killer fact emerged that one of my favourite albulms of all time LIVE AT LEEDS was supposed to be LIVE AT HULL. Unfortunately they failed to record the bass .... and panicked a little ... what can we do? I know, we're doing Leeds University ...let's try again ...

 A few years after the recording I was a post-graduate at Leeds and was taken very solemnly to see where Daltrey stood and where Townshend stood during the recording. LIVE AT HULL. Apparently it was a great gig, but somehow LIVE AT LEEDS is a better title.
