San Diego, CA: The Who prove that the show must – and can – go on.

 

 

When Zak Starkey was taken ill (nothing serious) yesterday hours before The Who’s show at Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend invited Scott Devours, who had toured ‘Tommy’ with Roger’s solo band two years ago, to step in.

 

Scott was magnificent. He played the whole of Quadrophenia note perfectly with only a two hour runthrough to the delight of everyone – onstage and off. Scott performed the ‘greatest hits’ encore with no rehearsal at all.

 

At the end of the show, Pete Townshend gave him a warm and well deserved tribute.

 

“Quadrophenia’s not an easy piece,” says Roger Daltrey. “To do what Scotty did took real guts.”

I’m part of the late 60’s early 70’s generation of The Who, and grew up listening to them, with that said, I just had to take my son Fabrizio (13 yrs) to experience his first concert of a lifetime. Hopefully this has influenced and enhanced his musical background and one day, he will be able to play like Pete Townshend.

Thank you guys! Keep Rocking!!!
