Pete Townshend’s Coat

by Regis Boff

So he shows up with this gigantic puffy coat at the beginning of a winter tour. We all had a laugh at him behind his back. It had to be continously worn because it was far too large to carry. At first he clearly thought it made him dapper. He soured badly after realizing it had no buttons and had to be held shut. A few of us barely got any sleep because we were laughing so hard. The coat disappeared in the middle of the tour.
