Winterland ‘76

Pete Townshend, The Who, by Michael Zagaris.

“This was, arguably, the last great Who tour: the whole ‘76 year. That was actually the last time Keith Moon played drums for them, before he died; and that was the last time the Who played Winterland. I think a friend of Moon’s from L.A. came up and had some mescaline. So we did mescaline before the show. I remember shooting part of the show from a television camera position and then started really coming on and shot part of the show from the pit in the front. I remember Moon got up and then collapsed over the drum kit-cymbals fell onto the ground-and Townshend and Entwistle ended up grabbing him, one by each ankle, and dragging him off stage.” ~Michael Zagaris
