Pete Townshend part1: The True Saga Of Clapton's Rainbow Gig

Charles Shaar Murray, New Musical Express, 24 February 1973

Anyway, the real address is somewhere else entirely. And once you sort out this mystery and get to the correct place, it's but a short delay before Pete Townshend bustles in, accompanied by a large furry object answering to the name of Towser.

Total word count of piece: 1932
