I had no idea who they were and had never heard their music. Can you imagine my shock when I heard them play? I heard them live before ever hearing their record. I was blown away.” More pictures and amazing stories at David’s site.

The quality isn’t good… BUT I FANGIRLED HARD WITH THIS PICTURE!!!

Me too! LOL

Note the City of Miami emblem – on a decorative trash can container, maybe? – at the left side of the pic. This was at a July 1968 show at the Miami Marine Stadium, a venue complete with floating stage.  

A couple more, first with Roger Daltrey, then with what looks like some fans (and a clearer view of the City of Miami emblem):

These photos are all by Pete Lamoia, who tells the amazing tale of this show, which ended with Keith Moon throwing his drums into Biscayne Bay! Details here.
