Maniacal Mondays: Pete Townshend’s Deep End
After The Who went on 'permanent hiatus' in the early 80's, songwriter Pete Townshend took time to release his 1985 solo effort, 'White City: A Novel'. In order to tour the album, Townshend assembled an amazing back-up band, many of whom would later tour behind The Who for their 25th anniversary jaunt. Besides three backing vocalists, the band featured the Kick Horns, drum beast Simon Phillips, and Pink Floyd guitar god David Gilmour, who also played on several 'White City' album tracks.
Enjoy Pete and Deep Ends' version of The Who classic 'Won't Get Fooled Again', taken from a series of concerts from the Brixton Academy, England. You'll notice credits running at the beginning of the song-this footage is taken from a 1986 release of those concerts (I went through two VHS copies myself of this show back in the day).
