Good evening, News Viewers, and welcome to the weekend.
I found a bit of trivia I thought was quite interesting in a Darwin Award sort of way:
Keith Moon of The Who rigs his bass drum to explode at the end of “My Generation” during the group’s appearance on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, but he doesn’t realize that the stage crew has already set the charge. The resulting explosion cuts Moon’s leg, singes Pete Townshend‘s hair, and startles fellow guests Bette Davis and Mickey Rooney.Music History Calendar:
1967 – The Who appeared on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. An incident occurred with flash explosions that damaged Pete Townshend’s ears.
It’s only Rock & Roll, right?
Anyway–I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. We’ve just been putting stuff away, lowering umbrellas, covering up stuff because…it’s going to rain! And only last week, it was 115 freaking degrees. I swear our weather is bipolar.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
