Back in February, I posted on the 'Other Bands' forum regarding the upcoming Teenage Cancer Trust Gigs at The Royal Albert Hall. According to Ross Halfin's diary, he and Jimmy attended the concert on Wednesday, 28th March. Details below.
A night at the TCT at the Albert Hall. I went with Jimmy Page we both wanted to see Roger Daltrey play his acoustic set - which we missed… So, we got there in time for Kelly Jones who to be honest was boring, with Ronnie Wood doing Oh La La and an even more boring Beatles song. Paul Weller and band played an acoustic set of hits.
Roger came back and played The Kids Are Alright , Who Are You and Behind Blue Eyes, which I've heard so much I wouldn't care if I never heard it again. It's the Who's Smoke On The Water. Then Amy McDonald was sort of okay, she gave her best on Born To Run. Followed by Steve Winwood who was amazing. I mean he was so good he got us on our feet. Higher Love and a long, jammed Gimme Some Loving - his playing and voice were to die for…
Roger finished the night with Pinball Wizard, I Can See For Miles, Won't Get Fooled Again and Young Man Blues. His band were, and I have to say this, better than I've seen The Who in years. The playing was like the records and his voice was perfect, it was exciting. His guitarist was playing a Gibson with lots of attack. The night just got better and better. I left during Baba O'Reilly when Kelly Jones and Ronnie reappeared both doing sort of nothing. But still a great night.
