    Bob to the rescue. I wonder if he holds the title of being the longest term employee of a band that is still active?

    Is that a Rainbow Theatre logo on Pete's back?

    Every time I return to this thread, my jaw drops to the floor a little harder. Absolutely the most visually compelling band in the history of (rock) music.

    The Who group 1968

    "The world's fastest greyhound and favourite for the greyhound derby Yellow Printer comes out of his guarded hiding place to meet rock group The Who. Trainer John Bassett with The Who members left to right: John Entwistle, Keith Moon and Pete Townshend, 20th May 1968. (Photo by Tom King)"

    The Who recorded Dogs in May of 1968. So, this is likely a promotional photo session for the single.

    I don't think that date (20th May 1968) is correct for those dog photos. Pete was married on May 20th 68.
    Maybe that's the date the photos published?

    FWIW, These pics show Keith wearing that same jacket back on November 12, 66:

    I agree that the photo can't be from May 20 1968-

    Looking thru my photos, the hair styles appear to match June / July 1968.

    Townshend cut his hair shorter after the wedding.

    Pete's Number 2 Les Paul Deluxe Goldtop is my favorite guitar from that era.
