Here's the full concert.
Keith tries to start Won't Be Fooled Again, but passes out and the band basically plays the entire song without drum. Around the 1h 17m mark is a good place to catch the Scot Halpin story begin to unfold, as they finish up WBFA... including Roger's guttural scream at the end of the song, which is amazing.
Keith comes out on the front of the stage and tries to fight Pete, but he's too wasted.
Then Pete asks the audience for a drummer around 1h 39m and this is when the Scot Halpin story begins.
I think it’s cool that the conscious members of the Who exercised this option.
Most/many huge rock acts would have just said Thankyou, Goodnight.
RIP Scott Halpin.
That’s a great story and it’s why I’ve carried a guitar pick in my pocket at every concert I’ve attended. Ya never know when “Is there a guitar player in the house??” will ring out from stage. I’m ready!
My wife and I fly a lot. I'm still waiting for "The pilot had a heart attack"..."Can anyone fly a 737?"
I don't know how... but I'm not passing up the chance to try!
I love the part where Maynard G. Krebs asks if anyone can play drums
Keith Moon and John Bonham have always struck m as Gonzos, the mad drummer on the Muppets.
The mad drummer on the Muppets was Animal, not Gonzo
Yeah, but Animal passed-out - so Gonzo had to take his place...
I always thought of Max Weinberg as Beaker...
Interestingly enough, Roger Daltrey actually quit The Who early and right when they were really getting going because he was done with the others being wasted on stage.
Actually went a couple weeks with Pete and the others taking turns on vocals until the manager said “hey dudes - this ain’t working“ At which time they all begged Roger to come back and laid down the law with the others that they can do whatever the hell they wanted but - not on stage.
The whole thing supposedly started when Roger flushed a big bag of speed Belonging to Keith down the toilet. Keith came off stage and said “where is me drugs mate ?” and then attacked Roger after Roger said he flushed it all and he was done with them being blasted.
Keith lunged at Roger, Roger flattened him,and then the whole thing started...
I mean, how hard could it be?
I've seen both Buddy Guy and Robert Randolph invite players from the audience up on stage to jam.
Almost happened to me. On the last flight out of Little Rock several years ago, the pilot had a massive heart attack just as we began to board the plane.
So, you got er' down OK?
No offence intended, but I hope I'm not on that flight
Holy CRAP! Halpin was from my hometown!!! How is he not a legend! I've never heard this story before, although I was only 7yo. You'd think this story would have been told amongst all my friends at some point, especially drummers.
We even ended up in the same area after Muscatine... SF, albeit 20 years apart. Amazing.
I need to go collect myself now.
A few months back this was pretty good to see (via youtube):
The Foo Fighters are always inviting audience members to play. I love how genuinely happy they are for the person living out a dream.
Just watched the last 15 minutes of the Who’s Cow Palace Scott Halpin experience. I remember reading about it at the time, but it is a gas to watch!
