Andy Gunton… A bit more about The Who gig http://www.thestinger.org.uk/article/5363c47aca45284d1296d929#.V5ECBmWYfyI

Jenny Tyler… John Entwistle kissed my cheek. I Still love the Who.

Pete Fisher… My first, all-time favourite and most historic Pier gig…

Chris Sambrook…As the moon landings are coming up The Who played the Sunday Club on the very eve. I went as I was 14 at the time, The Who played most of Tommy check out Live At Leeds. There is an cd just been released called Old England New England which could be the same set The Who played in America. I’ve got the cd but haven’t played it yet. After the gig I walked back to St.Leonards in a daze. My dad had the tv on waiting for the moon landing.

Pete Fisher… Hi Chris! Will be commemorating this next week…a real musical milestone for me…my first proper concert (also 14) – vaguely remember staying up to watch the moon landing afterwards, but remember my ears still ringing the next day at school!!

Keith Matthews… I was there too. Brilliant gig. Getting a burger at a little place over the road afterwards and a black limo pulled up. John Entwistle climbed out of the back and ordered burgers for himself and Moony who was also in the car. We had a chat and a laugh with them for a few minutes, complimenting them on the gig. Unfortunately don’t have a record of it as it wasn’t cool for an 18 year old guy to ask for autographs! Wish I had had a camera on me.
