Paparazzi Shots!

I thought some of you MIGHT be interested in these shots of you know who and company. I took them at the Attic Jam at Hotel/Cafe in L.A. last November.
The line-up was: Rachel Fuller, Mikey Cuthbert, Simon Townshend, Minnie Driver, "E" from the eels, Billy Corgan and of course, Pete!

I won tickets (including a meet and greet) on In the Attic, and I took Molly (Ballerinagurl) as my "date!" The night was heavenly (especially having Molly as a date! har har). Only problem was, I was quite ill and started hallucinating while talking to Pete! No, not really, but I DID sing to him...NOT intentionally, of course. I explained to him that it was MOI who introduced Martha Wainwright to Rachel. He was really pleased to hear that - he called one of her songs "genius" and explained that she sang French in part of the song in her Quebecois accent. So I was racking my brain trying to figure out which one it was and instead of singing it to myself I went "OH!" and started singing it to him! (In case you are curious the song is called, "This Life" and it's on her debut cd). Anyway, they're all pretty tight...Pete even plays on her new cd, so watch out for that!

The highlights of the evening were Rachel singing Joni Mitchell's "Blue", E and Pete singing "Let My Love Open the Door" and Billy Corgan and Pete singing Thunderclap Newman's "Something in the Air." Pete sat on the piano bench, playing acoustic guitar for most of the song, then put the guitar on his back (he slid it - you know what I mean) and played the famous piano solo from that song (which he also recorded on the original, as most of you know).

I gave Rachel a pink t-shirt that said "Shine" (and a hug) and I gave Pete an Aboriginal red beaded skullcap from Alishan, Taiwan. I gave it to him in a cool Elvis gift bag. He held the bag up and looked it over and smiled. I hope he liked it! It's pretty wild though - but Rachel told me he'd love it. She's such a sweetie. I will NEVER forget that night, as long as I live.

Here you can see E from the eels (he got a haircut and is wearing wire rimmed glasses) and next to Pete is Keith's daughter, Mandy Moon.

This is Minnie Driver and a friend (it's a bit blurry). I was having a hard time getting good shots as the night went on...

Pete told so many stories...I wish I remembered what he was yappin' about here! :)
He sang "Blue, Red and Grey" on the ukele.

Here Pete is taking the piss out of Roger. He was saying how Rog had become a "Master Thesbian," holding his mug up to the crowd, inviting them to "have some TEA at the THEATRE with MEEEEEEEEEEE!" It was too funny...as you can see!

Pete and E

The finale! (I forget what they sang...isn't that terrible?)

Molly and Justin Kreutzmann

Oh joy oh rapture!!

Jump suits abound and Elton John "can't explain"

What is this all about, you ask?

Stay tuned, and you'll see...

There's a jumpsuit explosion at the end of the song, along with -- mysteriously -- the opening riffs of "I Can't Explain". LOL

I just can't explain it.

1981 Who concert at RockPalast (Germany) ... radio archive replay

My good friend from the same "unrelated fan site" sent me another pointer tonight to a *concert* replayed on the BBC music archive.

PW sounds wild and wacky! Frenetic!

It's a WICKED show.

Here's the track listing:

Baba O' Riley
Quiet One
Behind Blue Eyes
Pinball Wizzard
Who Are You
My Generation
You Better You Bet
Don't Let Go The Coat
Won't Get Fooled Again
Twist And Shout
See Me, Feel Me

I think this'll only be up for a couple more days so enjoy IT will it lasts. (rather than just "enjoy")

P.S. After the show, the DJ plays McCartney's "Angry" which Pete played guitar on. :-) (This was the first time I've ever heard it.)

A good friend of mine (from a *completely* unrelated fan site!) pointed me to this:

The Hair and The Who - review of Amazing Journey

And all of a sudden we were a Mod band......

Post your comments here on the new Who movie


Lin said, ".... my friends Lisa and Jon... just informed me that our possibly second fave person on the planet, Roger Daltrey, is positively in NY"

If Roger is our second fave person, would that make Pete and Rachel one person as in... PETCHEL??

Blog on Petchel fans, blog on!

Just a reminder...

Don't forget:
The Who on VH1

It was a great event and it is a great movie!
