I have that photo on my refrigerator.
I asked Eddie Vedder if he bought the wine #5 Les Paul from Pete. He smiled and gestures that his lips were sealed.
What is the story behind those shots? How did they get Roger to take off all his clothes and pose like a dog?
That is a badass photo.
"Either sit down, or stand up, or lay down, or do something but shut up, alright? This is a f***ing rock 'n roll concert, not a f***ing tea party!"

Roger the "Rodney Dangerfield" of the group.
As far as I know, Pete's #5 Les Paul Deluxe is still in the hands of a private collector. The #5 Vedder has is reportedly a replica.

I know Ed is a superfan, I’ll share a nice story about Ed and the Entwistle estate auction when I’m not posting on my phone.

45 years ago this week, The Who performed the first of four concerts at Edmonton Sundown Theatre in London, UK with shows taking place on December 18 & 19 and 22 & 23, 1973.
Notes from The Who Concert File:
The band agreed to play four shows in London due to overwhelming demand for tickets during the UK tour in the autumn. The chaotic crowd scenes at the London Lyceum in particular had influenced this decision, and tickets for Edmonton were available by mail order only.
Pete Townshend later expressed the opinion that this series of four concerts were the best the band had ever played, and certainly the best Quadrophenia concerts. "I felt like one of The 'Oo an' all that," he commented in Melody Maker (February 16 1974), "But I also felt like one of the crowd."
