Earlier the same year, it must have been May, I went with Chis Welch to do an interview with Pete Townshend where he said he was planning a ‘rock opera’ about a deaf, dumb and blind boy. I thought he’d gone ‘cuckoo’ but a few months later I went over to IBC Studios and found him and the rest of The Who deep into recording ‘Tommy’. It was sounding amazing and I quickly reassessed my doubts and become a believer! I spent a few hours just hanging in and got a lot of pics of the band hard at work. Even Mr. Moon was sober. This photo of John and Pete shows them overdubbing a bass and guitar riff.
